I ranked Green #48 and said he would be a backup cornerback and special teamer (LINK). He made 5 tackles and 1 pass breakup.
TTB Rating:

The career of German Green so far at Michigan has been an interesting one, if not terribly exciting. I heard buzz during the recruitment of German and his twin brother Gemon that German was actually the player thought to have the higher ceiling, though he had some injury issues. They were recruited in the class of 2018, meaning that Gemon stayed five years, could have returned for a sixth in 2023, but chose to move on to the NFL. He was an experienced starter and surely would have started in 2023 opposite Will Johnson now that D.J. Turner II made the decision to go to the league.

German, on the other hand, has been a special teamer throughout his career. Somewhat fascinatingly, he decided to return for 2023, even after his twin brother left. Most guys would have called it a career after five years of not really playing much, but perhaps the draw of possibly winning a national championship is worth putting in an extra year of work. German is never mentioned as a possible starter in the defensive backfield even though his brother and Turner both left. Most of the talk surrounds unproven sophomore Amorion Walker and UMass transfer Josh Wallace.

What German does bring is experience and the ability to play on special teams. Altogether, he has played in 34 career games, including 27 over the past two years. This will likely be another year of playing on specials except in blowouts.

Prediction: Backup cornerback and special teamer
