Kenyon Green is a player that can come in Day 1 and be a contributor. Based on his size he is an NFL-ready prospect that has experience at multiple positions across the offensive line. At Texas A&M Green made starts at all 5 offensive line positions, a lot of teams value his flexibility and experience.
Many across the league are concerned about his testing numbers. He ran a 5.24 at the NFL combine and ran a very similar time at his Texas A&M pro day. He didn’t test particularly well but I don’t think that should deter you from taking him at #24.
In his time at Texas A&M he played in 35 career games and took 2,175 snaps along different positions on the offensive line. In 2020, he started all 10 games at left guard and logged 691 snaps while being named a consensus All-American. During 2020 he gave up 1 sack while being called for 7 total penalties.
Where he fits with the Dallas Cowboys:
The Cowboys have a hole to fill at the offensive guard position after the departure of Connor Williams in free agency. Kenyon Green has the ability to step in and be a day 1 starter for this team and should be considered a plug-and-play prospect. On tape, he has the athleticism to adjust and make blocks in the run game, while holding up well in pass protection. Although his testing numbers weren’t great, scouts believe he has enough athleticism and strength to handle big-bodied defensive lineman.
If the Cowboys decided not to sign a starting left guard in free agency, I would assume Green would be in strong consideration for the pick at 24. He fills an immediate need and can help this offensive line get back to strength for this team.
Bobby Belt of 105.3 The Fan said that Kenyon Greens’ versatility may be of interest to the Cowboys because of the concern surrounding Tyron Smiths’ health and performance.
This could make Green a possible option for Dallas at the left tackle position down the road. The team may use him at left guard this year and still have a backup plan for at left tackle, filling 2 needs at once.
I would love the pick. It isn’t flashy but could provide some talent to this offensive line. The idea of using his versatility along the offensive line could be exciting. We have seen a decline in this offensive line in recent years, adding Green gives you a piece that is set in stone for years to come.
