NEW YORK, NY (WTAQ) - In the third round of the NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Hawaii running back Alex Green.

The 6'1", 225 pound Green ran for 1,199 yards and 18 touchdowns for the Warriors in 2010.

According to NFL.com: Green does not project to be an every-down back at the next level, but he is a weapon in the passing game and could contribute on third down. He has prototypical size, but he runs a bit upright and will not consistently break tackles in the NFL. He also has a case of fumble-itis. He excels in the passing game, as he shows the ability to consistently get open, catches the ball away from his body and turns upfield without any wasted motion. Green will likely be a late round pick due to his ability as a receiver.
