Strengths: Green's strong performance throughout Georgetown's Final Four run boosted his stock greatly. He proved to be a leader throughout the NCAA Tournament. He has outstanding physical traits, combining size and length with a chiseled body and explosive vertical leap. He is the best passing big man that this draft as to offer, which he showed in Georgetown's Princeton-esque offense. He has the ability to score both inside and out, improving his ability to shoot the 3-pointer greatly over the last year.
Weaknesses: Green is not a solid enough ball handler to play small forward full time, and doesn't have the low-post moves that you look for in a full-time power forward. It is clear that he is somewhat stuck in between the forward positions. He is not an outstanding rebounder - he averaged only six per game throughout his career. Green struggles a bit creating his shot off of the dribble versus smaller, quicker defenders.
Outlook: Green is consistently shooting up the draft boards to the point where it appears he'll be selected in the middle of the lottery. He will likely be able to come in and contribute right away with his passing skills and athleticism, while also serving as a threat shooting the ball from the perimeter.
