Cowboys selected Florida OT Chaz Green with the No. 91 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Green (6'5/315) bookended D.J. Humphries at Florida, making 30 career starts at various positions on the line. He showed above-average athleticism in Indianapolis, running 5.16 with a 29 1/2-inch vertical. Short on strength, Green projects as a liability in the run game and was only functional as a college pass blocker. He does have an NFL body and enough versatility to potentially develop into a "swing" type backup. May 1 - 11:02 PM

Florida OT Chaz Green "played tackle throughout his Florida career and is athletic enough to remain there in the eyes of some scouts," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Green started all 12 games last season (10 at right tackle, two at left), no small feat after he'd battled health issues throughout his career. "Green is athletic and savvy -- even projecting to center for some clubs -- but could use more functional strength as a run blocker," Rang wrote. "His agility and intelligence could make him especially well-suited to teams using a zone-blocking scheme." CBS projects him as a Round 5 selection.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, "there's a bunch of intrigue over" Florida OT Chaz Green and "it's understandable."

"When healthy and hitting on all cylinders, his game film is top notch," Pauline wrote. "I've always felt had Green been able to stay on the field and play to his level of ability, he was top-100 material." In the past two days, Green has met with the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Bucs, San Diego Chargers, Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans. Green is set to visit the Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, Atlanta Falcons and Bucs in the near future. Green struggled during his pro day workout, but most agree he's going to get popped at some point on Day 3.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline reports that Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green "was poorly conditioned and looked gassed early on" at Florida's pro day.

"Offensive lineman Chaz Green was disappointing. I’m told he was poorly conditioned and looked gassed early on. At points, coaches pulled him from the workout," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Green has had durability concerns during his time in Gainseville, and has dealt with injuries his entire career. In 2014 Green remained healthy, starting 11 games, which helped out his stock greatly. In Green's defense, Pauline adds that "it was a very hot day and a long workout in which many of the 10 offensive line coaches on hand stepped in and ran their own drills."

Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green has private workouts scheduled with the Buccaneers, Panthers, Falcons, Texans, Cowboys, Bills, Saints, and the Chargers.

The Florida prospect has had durability concerns over the years, as he has dealt with injuries his entire career. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Green has missed a total of 20 games in his four years in Gainsville, missing several games with injuries, including the entire 2013 season with a torn labrum. In 2014, Green was able to make it through an entire season starting 11 games, at both tackle positions for the Gators. Green could be a day 3 selection in April.

Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green will play in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

Green is a former stud recruit, ranked No. 52 overall in the 2010 class. His career was perhaps slightly disappointing, but that's because of injuries. Green redshirted in Gainesville in 2010, and earned SEC All-Freshman team honors despite missing four games due to injury in 2011. Green missed a few games in 2012 and was forced out of the entire 2013 campaign due to injuries. Fortunately, he remained healthy in 2014, which will stabilize his stock. Expect the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Green to hear his name called on Day 3.
Jan 7 - 1:23 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green "doesn't receive a lot of ink and probably won't get drafted as high as he should, but he will be on a NFL roster a year from now."

"Green does need to tweak his finishing technique and stay healthy, but he was successful on Saturday at left and right tackle, showing his versatility. He isn't a special player, but is consistent and plays like a seasoned veteran. Green doesn't receive a lot of ink and probably won't get drafted as high as he should, but he will be on a NFL roster a year from now," Brugler writes. Brugler adds that the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Green, "was arguably Florida's most consistent lineman" versus Georgia. With Green leading the way, Florida's running backs collectively dropped 418 rushing yards on the Bulldogs. Green "displayed excellent movement skills for his size" and "showed strong hands to control defenders at the point of attack," according to Brugler.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green "displayed his versatility against Tennessee."

"Chaz Green seems a bit dinged up from his ankle injury several weeks ago but the Florida tackle displayed his versatility against Tennessee," Pauline wrote. The Gators prospect was "usually lining up on the left side" and moved to the strong side and did a solid job run blocking," according to Pauline.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green "looked good and his run blocking was impressive" in the first half of Saturday's game against Alabama.

Unfortunately, Green suffered an injury which sapped his effectiveness in the second half. "After having his leg rolled up on Green tried to play with a heavily wrapped ankle late in the first half but was far less effective," Pauline wrote. The analyst is a big fan of Green's, writing last week: "He’s incredibly athletic displaying terrific footwork and movement skills as well as the ability to adjust to blitzers. The ease which Green gets out to the second level and flows around the field is impressive. He must get stronger as well as play at a consistently high level but Green definitely comes with great upside."

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green is "incredibly athletic" and displays "terrific footwork."

"I’ve given little known offensive lineman Chaz Green positive reviews since his sophomore season and the Gators left tackle performed at an impressive level Saturday night against Kentucky," Pauline wrote. "He’s incredibly athletic displaying terrific footwork and movement skills as well as the ability to adjust to blitzers. The ease which Green gets out to the second level and flows around the field is impressive. He must get stronger as well as play at a consistently high level but Green definitely comes with great upside." We will add that Green must stay healthy this season to get drafted.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that several scouts have given Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green a draftable grade.

"Prior to last season many were surprised when I stated my thoughts that Chaz Green, a one-time starter who redshirted with injury in 2013, looked like a third round prospect at times," Pauline wrote. "I can tell you several scouts have given Green a draftable grade, albeit in the late rounds. The senior has the underlying skill to play on Sunday’s but has shown little consistency the past two seasons. He’s one of those players with the ability to jump up boards and catch people by surprise." To do so, Green will have to stay healthy. He has made 18 starts over the past three seasons with the Gators, but has missed several games with injuries, including the entire 2013 season with a torn labrum.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang says "scouts will want to investigate" Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green's "troubling struggles with durability."

Green has made 18 starts over the past three seasons with the Gators, but, as the analyst notes, he has trouble staying on the field. Green shredded his labrum around this time last year and missed the entire campaign -- he also missed games due to injury in each of the two previous seasons. "While scouts will want to investigate Green's troubling struggles with durability, he sports an athletic frame with long arms and light feet and could re-emerge as a legitimate draftable commodity with a return to health," Rang wrote.

Florida redshirt junior T Chaz Green will miss the upcoming season due to a torn labrum.

He will undergo surgery in the near future. Green started 10 games at right tackle in 2012. Tyler Moore, who started four games at Nebraska in 2011 as a freshman and spent last season at the JUCO level, will shift from guard to replace him in the starting lineup. WalterFootball.com had projected Green to go in the second round, No. 54 overall, to the Giants.

SI's Tony Pauline believes Florida redshirt sophomore T Chaz Green is a sleeper prospect at the position.

Pauline calls Green a "star in the making" at the left tackle position. Green unseated Xavier Nixon, who was a promising prospect in his own right until he failed to keep on sufficient weight, which stunted his improvement. Including this year, Green has three year's of eligibility remaining, but we the Gator offers solid mobility and an athletic lower half to mirror and anchor when absorbing contact.
