Scouting Report: Green is a back that is very productive. His numbers dipped a little in 2011 because he shared time with two seniors while starting at middle linebacker for his team. As a running back, he very rarely goes down in a one on one situation, he usually falls forward to get that extra yard, and he is just a positive runner. He runs with good balance, he runs with patience, and his low center of gravity makes him tough to tackle. He is not a flashy back or a back with overly impressive speed, but he is fast enough. He can still improve on that burst and his top end speed, but he is a running back that does many things well. He is a fierce competitor and he is a real leader on and off the field. Green is a productive back, he can catch the football, and he will be a weapon for the Bruin offense in the future.
