Sean O’Connell, UMGoBlog.com: “Green, like current Michigan verbal DeVeon Smith, is a perfect fit for what the Wolverines are transitioning to on the offensive side of the ball. He runs with great power, explosiveness and rarely goes down on first contact. Derrick has a very powerful lower body, good vision and is very athletic for a kid his size. His speed is also an asset. Some sites report him having run a 4.31, but he looks more like a high 4.4 to 4.5 kid to me. He is the downhill runner that Michigan is looking for.”
