  • Good sized corner who showed the needed patience and transition to effectively play mirror-match press man coverage.

  • Quick, active feet and smooth, fluid hips to open and transition from press man position. Flipped his hips easily.

  • A lot of strong snaps of press man coverage both mirror-match and physical jam — definite strength of his game.
  • Flashed extra burst tracking receivers on crossers then brought the wood. Played fast with competitive urgency.
  • Showed some physicality and competitive toughness as a tackler both in the run game and driving on receivers.
  • Outstanding playing personality. Highly competitive both as a coverage defender and tackler on the perimeter.

  • Showed explosive plant and drive quickness and burst from off coverage. Read routes and triggered with speed.
  • Showed good feel in zone coverage matching and delivering and reading routes in his area of responsibility.  


  • Some press man snaps in which he had balance and body control issues as he opened his hips to transition.
  • At times in press man, reacted to initial outside move by a wide receiver, opening the inside and putting him in recovery mode.
  • There will be some questions in regard to his top-end speed, to run with vertical routes by faster outside receivers in the NFL.
  • In some mirror-match press man snaps, he took too many steps in order to stop losing contact at the top of the route stem.

Green is one of the better corner prospects in the 2024 Draft as you project and transition him to the next level. His ability to play press man coverage, his high-level competitiveness and his physical toughness set him apart.

Green played in a man-heavy scheme at Florida State and showed all the needed traits to play both mirror-match and physical press coverage to the field and the boundary. He showed poise, patience, comfortable hip transition, targeted physicality, natural quickness and, at times, sudden movement to match up man-to-man on an island. Green was also effective in zone coverage concepts with a good understanding of match, carry and deliver and an awareness of route concepts and combinations.

Overall, Green is a strong outside cornerback prospect with his press man profile featuring both mirror-match and physical jam ability, with good short-area quickness and more-than-functional top-end speed to match quality wide receivers. Green plays with an aggressive, tenacious mindset and approach that, at times, looked like L’Jarius Sneed, a fourth round pick in the 2020 draft out of Louisiana Tech who has developed into one of the better corners in the NFL.

In an evolving league that demands corners be able to line up and play press man, Green is one of the most intriguing corner prospects in the draft class.


Green came out of central Florida as a sought-after recruit choosing Florida State over Ohio State. He played five years at Florida State starting at corner in his final two seasons.

In 2022, Green gained extensive experience playing both right and left corner in Florida State’s defense and therefore, gained extensive experience playing both to the field and the boundary 

In 2023, Green again played extensive snaps at both outside corner positions, playing to the field and the boundary. Green played significant snaps in the opening game of the season, matching up to LSU WR Malik Nabers, and he played mirror-match press man at a high level. 

In his two years starting, Green was almost exclusively an outside corner, playing more than 1100 snaps outside and only approximately 30 snaps in the slot.
