OVERALL

Renardo Green is an experienced cornerback with positional versatility. He started 13 games last season and led Florida State with 13 pass breakups.

Green had a good start to the season, matching up well against top receiving prospects such as Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. while coming away with an interception from future Heisman winner Jayden Daniels. At the end of the season, he was named to the All-ACC second team.

Green is a pure press-man corner who is very physical in coverage, though he panics with the ball in the air at times and becomes too handsy. Green does have great makeup speed and change of direction, which allows him to stay in phase and break well on routes.

When playing the run, Green does a very good job of identifying and coming up to support his position. Green’s average size could be a concern in run support in the NFL, but it hasn’t given him too much trouble to date. When taking on blocks, he often uses his quickness to beat blocks in space but can run into trouble when taking on bigger, stronger blockers.

Overall, Green is an explosive athlete with positional versatility, but will look to make his impact in the NFL as a nickel to start. In the early years of his career, he likely will have to show value on special teams before being a full-time nickel cornerback.
