Aaron Green

RB · Texas Christian
Green arrived at Nebraska in 2011 as a top high school recruit, but with a crowded running back depth chart led by Rex Burkhead and Ameer Abdullah, He elected to transfer. Green chose TCU over Baylor, Oklahoma and Texas Tech, sitting out the 2012 season due to transfer rules. He stepped into the starter role as a junior with a team-high 922 yards and nine scores, earning second team All-Big 12 honors. Green had his bests season in 2015 as a senior (10 starts) with a career-high 1,272 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, earning All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors.

focused receiver with reliable hands, often lining up in the slot. has the chops to at least make an effort in pass protection. only three fumbles in his career. driven individual and well-respected by people around the program ("phenomenal young man").



Balanced athlete and light on his feet to make sharp lateral cuts, creating with ankle-breaking jukes. Shifty movements and open-field wiggle to explode north-south. Easy acceleration to burst away from defenders in space. Natural run instincts to read blocks and usually has a plan at the line of scrimmage. Runs tough and keep his legs churning, fighting for every yard.

route-running and field sense need improved. steps up as a blocker, but too easily knocked off his feet. ball security needs improved, holding the ball too loose.


green has video game-like cuts, making quick reads and reacting with his feet to keep defenders off-balance, but he needs space to be effective. he isn't a strong between-the-tackles runner and struggles with congestion, not consistently trusting his vision or allowing blocks to develop. green is quicker than fast with the athleticism to create on his own as a runner or receiver, but his lack of run power will limit his role in the nfl.

--Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) (2/8/16)

lacks an ideal build for the position and his frame doesn't have the growth potential to get much bigger. runs with minimal power and is limited as an inside runner. tunnel vision at times and gets bounce happy, dancing and taking too many steps in the backfield.

Needs to take what is blocked for him instead of trying to create on his own. Bad habit of stopping his feet and won't pick up yards after initial contact, too easily taken down by finger-tip tackles. Doesn't have elite downfield speed and can be caught from behind.
