We liked his combination of size and speed and aggressiveness. He’s an aggressive tackler.”, said Lions head coach Jim Schwartz.

Green will be competing against fellow draftees Bill Bentley from Louisiana-Lafayette (third round) and Chris Greenwood of Albion (fifth round), as well as veterans Jacob Lacy, Aaron Berry, and Alphonso Smith.
