Round 5 (167): Chaz Green, Florida OG/C
The Seattle Seahawks have desperate needs all over the offensive. Thus, bringing in a guy who has the athleticism and experience at all five spots makes a lot of sense. Chaz Green fits the bill to a tee.
He is astoundingly smooth in his movements for a 315-lb man. Moving to the second level is a big strength due to his athleticism, but also his instincts and awareness. He finds guys to block when pulling, as well as picking up stunts and late blitzes with ease.
Green is an ideal fit in Tom Cable and Darrell Bevell’s system. Here is a quote from NFL.com.
"Athletic, heady player with potential position versatility. His foot quickness and movement skill will appeal to zone-scheme teams but he must improve his strength and ability in pass protection to be considered a full time tackle. Could end up transitioning into a full-time center role."
The only issue is the way his mindset becomes much less aggressive in pass-protection as opposed to run-blocking. He often lets defenders into his body, and doesn’t use his hands well to ward them off. He gives up too much ground into the backfield at times. But regardless, he could be an immediate contributor for Seattle.
