A fan-favorite for Cowboys fans, Kenyon Green, is regarded by many as the best guard prospect in this draft. So why bother putting him as a possible solution to the hole at guard if he will be gone before pick 24? Well, to get the “bad” part out of the way, Green had a not-great-but-not-bad Combine.

The Texas A&M Aggie scored as “good” in speed and size, and “okay” in explosion. However, a lot of what makes Green a great prospect isn’t necessarily evident in athleticism, but rather in technique and in his tape. Green spent most of his time at left guard, but played at least 80 snaps last season in other line positions except center.

While the Aggie doesn’t pop off the screen athletically, his motor and drive is never questioned. This play by him is a perfect example of what to expect as he looks to help in every way possible and doesn’t stop until the whistle.

The Texas native would be the perfect Jerry Jones pick. A homegrown plug-and-play starter to help fortify an offensive line that’s missing a starter at guard. Green’s NFL-ready frame and outstanding run blocking makes him a can’t-miss pick.
