Pros:  Good quickness off the snap. ... Wide set and has good lateral agility and balance to compete with athletic defensive tackles in pass protection

Cons:  Raw. ... Was getting by on his athleticism at the college level. ... Marginal upper-body strength and hand placement.

Styg's Broncos Fit:   This is one of those "sweet spot" picks that Denver may have a chance to nab.  He is versatile, playing at DT, G and most recently C, which he picked up quickly.  He does a good job of studying defenses and using technique against opponents, but his strength is definitely his inherent athleticism.  Not a finished product currently, he needs a little more time to work with an offensive line and to polish his game up.  He grades out well and consistently in every category, but with some time he has the ability to grade out great.  As a high-investment backup, he has the potential to pay tremendous dividends.

From "My Mock" at Field Gulls:

Tyronne Green is only 6'2" - with cleats on. Like Mansfield Wrotto, he's a bit raw. And like Wrotto, Green entered college as a defensive tackle. He didn't convert to guard until 2005. Scouts rave about his athleticism. He has 33 ¾" arms and 10 ¼" hands. Green busted his butt for coaches at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine, is agile, quick, powerful, capable of working in a zone scheme, a starter at Auburn, and even has some non-competitive experience at center.

From "2009 Draft: Offensive Guards" at Windy City Gridiron:

Tyronne Green is definately smaller than most NFL teams would prefer their Guards to be.  But, he has faced off against many of the best pass-rushers and run-stuffers in the college ranks, and very rarely got beat.

Green is surprisingly strong for his smaller frame, and has tremendous speed.  He can get to the 2nd level of defenders when necessary.  Green plays hard... very hard.  He has proven to be a good listener and student of the game, contantly wanting to learn more.  He has been a natural leader for the Auburn Tigers, and has earned the respect of everyone in the lockerroom.

Tyronne has been trying to add some bulk to his frame, and will need some extra coaching at the NFL level on his technique.  But Green is very well-known for his work ethic... and  I certainly expect to see him in someone's starting lineup within the next couple of seasons.


Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:

  • Started every game his last two years with the Tigers...Began his college career as a defensive tackle...Received the Ken Rice Award as Auburn's best blocking lineman in 2007...Faced a lot of elite defensive linemen in the SEC...Hails from a program that has produced a lot of pro prospects along the offensive line in recent years...Didn't have the amazing senior season most were expecting after an outstanding junior campaign...Nice developmental project with some intriguing physical tools and  terrific intangibles...Perhaps a very poor-man's Ben Grubbs.  [see more...]
  • A stocky guard with good lower body power and natural base strength. Can really anchor into his stance and does a great job defeating bull rushers. Displays a great first step off the ball and has the ability to create movement in the run game. Has one of the most powerful punches in the nation and really stuns defenders on contact. Finishes his blocks.  [see more...]
  • s a redshirt sophomore, the now 310-pound Green appeared in all 13 games, lining up behind Grubbs at left guard. He was in on 24 knockdowns, as the squad averaged 320.92 yards in total offense.

    Grubb's graduation saw Green replace him in the lineup for the 2007 campaign. He posted 83 knockdowns/key blocks with 11 touchdown-resulting blocks, paving the way as the Tigers averaged 335.15 yards per game. For that performance, he was the recipient of the Ken Rice Award, given to the team's best offensive lineman.

    Green earned All-Southeastern Conference accolades as a senior. He registered a team-high 113 knockdowns/key blocks, the most of any guard in the conference. He added nine touchdown-resulting blocks and did not allow any quarterback sacks, helping the team average 302.92 yards per game. He showed tremendous field alertness in 2008, recovering three Auburn fumbles while recording a pair of tackles after Tiger interceptions, causing a fumble on one of those thefts.  [see more...]
