Name: German Green
Weight: 180 lbs.
High school: DeSoto (TX) DeSoto
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #13
Last year: I ranked Green #59 and said he would be a backup safety and special teamer (LINK). He played in one game.
TTB Rating: 59
Entering year three at Michigan, Green has been named Defensive Scout Team Player of the Week twice and Special Teams Scout Player of the Week once. He played in one game in 2019, against Rutgers. At a listed 6’2″ and 180 lbs., he does not appear to be physically ready yet to take on the rigors of big-time college football, where a safety with his height should be around 200 lbs. or more.
I have Green here at #62, one spot ahead of true freshman Makari Paige (LINK). I do not expect much production from either player in 2020, but I lean toward experience when it comes to a few positions, and that includes safety. Sometimes mental maturity is more important than physical prowess at the safety spots. That being said, it’s not often that a guy goes into year three with no hype and then develops into a high-level contributor.
Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer
