Green Happy About Senior Bowl Performance

Auburn offensive lineman Tyronne Green discusses his week at the Senior Bowl in an interview with Inside the Auburn Tigers.

Mobile, Ala.--Tyronne Green says he believes he just completed a positive step forward on his goal of becoming an NFL football player.

On Saturday night at Ladd-Peebles Stadium the former Auburn offensive guard wrapped up his Senior Bowl week and says the experience was a good one after his South team won 35-18 over the North.

"I had a good week of practice," Green tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I came in with high expectations for myself. I wanted to show the coaches what I could do even though I'm a little undersized for my position.

"I wanted to show them I could hold my own and I think I produced the whole week of practice," he adds. "I gave them something good to look at and it continued here in the game tonight."

For many players the important part of the Senior Bowl experience is the week of practices leading up to the game when NFL teams have an extended amount of time to watch the players in action and talk to them after workouts.

"All week has been good for me," Green says. "I've been hearing good things from the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff and all the staffs here this week so I definitely think I helped myself this week."

Green, who played his senior season as a graduate student, is from Pensacola, Fla. "With the game in Mobile, I had a lot of family come over for the game and get to see me play for the first time during my Auburn career," he says.

The offensive lineman says he enjoyed his week in Mobile. "It's definitely good for Mobile," he says of the all-star game. "The top guys come here to compete and bond a little bit, but most of all compete. That is what it's all about. Coaches get to see that first hand how you handle the practices and the game so they will know what to expect from you."

Green has been training in Phoenix, Ariz., with Brett Fischer and he will test in a combine there for pro scouts next month. "I'm leaving on Sunday for Phoenix and will probably take Monday off. I'll get right back at it on Tuesday getting ready for the combine."
