Bio: 
First-year starter who rushed for 743 yards and two touchdowns on 159 carries in 2016, adding 29 receptions for 167 yards. Scored eight touchdowns as a junior, racking up 729 yards on 151 carries. Played three games in 2014 before suffering a season-ending groin injury. Led Cincinnati with seven rushing touchdowns in 2013, rushing 91 times for 412 yards.
Pos: 
Underrated ball carrier with the size and speed to play at the next level. Possesses a stout build, runs hard on the inside and rarely gets taken down by the first defender. Picks up yardage off initial contact, carries the pile and runs with an aggressive style. Finds the small creases in the offensive line and works to get through them. Displays good awareness in pass protection, picks up blitzes and squares into defenders to keep them from the quarterback. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield.
Neg: 
Lacks the quickness and agility to turn the corner. Primarily a downhill runner who loses momentum changing direction or cutting back against the grain.
Analysis: 
Green did a terrific job returning from the season-ending injury he suffered in 2014, and if medically cleared he possesses the skill set to line up as a short-yardage back on Sundays.
