With the 16th selection in the NFL Draft, the Browns FINALLY give Tim Couch an offensive weapon, selecting RB William Green from Boston College. At 6-1, 221 lbs, Green is a powerful runner with excellent balance and vision. "He was used as a power back early in his career, as a goal line back. He does a nice job catching balls out of the backfield and he's a much better blocker than he's given credit for. He's a top-10 talent and easily the top RB on my board. His combine numbers were: Height- 6002, Weight- 221 lbs, 27 reps of 225lbs, his 40-times were 4.60 and 4.67, and a 42" vertical leap, which was tops among the RBs. I love the way he fits your offense and I feel he's an excellent pick for the Browns." - Rob "Boomer" Rang from Boomersdraft.com.
