Scouting Report: Derrick Green

Submitted by Magnus on August 1st, 2012 at 7:09 AM

This morning I posted a full scouting report on Richmond (VA) Hermitage tailback Derrick Green.  This will probably be my last scouting report for a class of 2013 kid, unless some new offers emerge for the class.  Most people expect our last spot(s) to be taken by Green and/or LaQuon Treadwell, although I'm not confident we'll get both.  In the coming weeks, I'll probably move on to 2014 kids.

Anyway, Green is a very solid running back.  I don't think he's the top running back in the nation like Rivals does, but I can't argue too much with the sites who think he's among the top six or seven guys.

One of the things that I did like in the film was Green's acceleration and his ability to blow past at least the initial blocks. Behind the right offensive line, I think we're still talking about some pretty good production in an RB if, as you mention, he lets blocking develop. I did like the Clay / Hill comparison - that's actually where my mind went when thinking of a relatively recent analog to what Green appears to be.
