Dominic Green
6-2/298 Nevada
5.23 Senior

Pros: Does his best work blocking on the move. Gets out quickly to the second level and does an excellent job cutting linebackers. Has a mean streak. Shows some quickness off the snap which allows him to get position.

Cons: Lacks strength and can get pushed back in the pocket. Needs to improve his footwork in pass protection.

Overview: Green works well Nevada's pistol offense, but it might take a bit of an adjustment to transition to an NFL offense. He played multiple positions during his career, playing center, guard, and tackle.

NFL Forecast: Green doesn't have ideal size in the middle, but would fit nicely in a zone blocking scheme like Houston that uses a lot of cut blocking. Not sure he's going to be a starter, but offers versatility to play multiple positions in the middle. He's good enough to stick on the NFL level, but I'm not sure he has the strength and experience to be a really standout starter at the pivot.

ATL Forecast: Green could be a decent backup, but I don't think he'd be an upgrade over McClure in the coming years. Could eventually work there, but probably would just be a stopgap that the team tries to upgrade over the following year. He could add depth, but is probably not likely to contribute as much at guard as he would on other teams.

Value: Green is worth bringing to camp for a team that likes its centers to get out in space. But probably not worth a draft pick.
