Alex Green scouting report

Alex Green RB Hawaii
Ht: 6’0″

Wt: 225

Strengths:
Prototypical size for a workhorse running back at the next level. Extremely productive down the stretch in 2010 once Hawaii finally committed to him as their go-to running back. Surprising quickness for his size. Looks good as a receiver out of the backfield; reliable hands.
Weaknesses:
Extremely limited experience. JUCO transfer who didn’t become a full-time player at Hawaii until the second half of his senior year. Never had more than 19 carries in a game at Hawaii. Comes from a spread offense which created plenty of open running lanes; limited experience running between the tackles and picking up tough yardage.
Comments:
Green is one of the most intriguing late-round options at running back. Down the stretch in 2010 he really looked like he had a bright future in the pros, but prior to October he was barely on the NFL radar screen. How much of his success was a result of Hawaii’s system? He could be a player just scratching the surface of his potential, or he could be a fluke who will quickly fade in the NFL.
