Mel Kiper sure loves him some Green:
… Like SEC defenses since Green stepped on the field as a true freshman at Georgia, Colorado was helpless against him. Any rust acquired during the time off didn’t show, as Green caught seven passes for 119 yards and a pair of touchdowns. While he’s developed his route running and underneath game, Green continues to be the best downfield threat in the college game. Georgia may struggle, but it’ll be hard to take Green’s stock down with the team’s fortunes.
So does his quarterback.
… Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray explained the difference with Green in the game.
“When (defensive player) are making their reads, they’ve gotta say, ‘Hey I gotta make sure I know where A.J. is.’ That split-second right there, that opens up a running lane, that allows the running back to get out there and get to the safety a little faster,” Murray said. “It really does open up other people to make plays.”
And he wants to do more.
The Bulldogs also need a punt returner, with Branden Smith out with a concussion. Green has been getting reps, along with Logan Gray, Carlton Thomas and Derek Owens.
Despite the injury risk, Green wants the job.
“I would love to do that,” Green said.
