Scouting Report
As a high school quarterback, Green shows out most when he gets into space with an ability to move up field quickly coupled with being able to plant his foot in the ground and change direction in quick fashion. The 6'2" receiving prospect also moves laterally well and shows good lower body strength.

Another aspect of Green's game that will translate well to receiver are his stop and start capabilities. Green has the ability to get up to top speed rather quickly for an athlete his size from a complete stop and I believe that will help his route running in the future.

His willingness to put team first is also a plus when it comes to changing his position in college. I also believe his unselfish nature will allow him to be redshirted coming in and help in the process of molding his understanding of how to play wide out.

From the little I've seen of Christian at the wide receiver position, he shows very good hands for the position and a knack for reading his defender in a one on one instance. Coming into college, Green is a great playmaker that will have to learn the fundamentals, route running and idiosyncrasies to being a complete wide receiver.

Who He Reminds Me Of
Mix between Anquan Boldin and Damien Williams. His lower body strength (that of a running back) reminds me of Boldin, while his quickness and acceleration remind me of Williams. Those two qualities are Green's best physical attributes in my opinion.

College Outlook
Any school would love to have a playmaker with the talents of a Christian Green coming in. I believe Green has the ability to be an all conference type player at the wide receiver position and a top 60 NFL draft pick in the future if he gets the proper coaching.

In his freshman season, Christian is a definite redshirt possibility in order to let him have a year to learn his new position. Green has the frame to also add a bit more upper body strength and should see the weight room quite a bit as he steps on campus.
