- Top-five Temple prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. DE/OLB Marcus Green (6-1, 240)...A career reserve, Green should get his chance to start in 2012 as the Owls need to replace both their defensive ends from a year ago. With only 21 tackles and 1.0 sack over his first three seasons with Temple, he is still very green behind the ears, but has flashed the raw tools to be a productive player. Green was a little-known two-star linebacker recruit out of New Jersey, but earned playing time as a true freshman in 2009 on special teams coverage. He spent the majority of his next two seasons on special teams, but did register his first sack last season as a back-up edge rusher. Similar to Adrian Robinson who led the Owls in sacks in 2011, Green is undersized and lacks ideal length to consistently take on blocks, but he does a nice job using his eyes to track and anticipate the action. He isn't a speed demon off the edge, but plays with the body control and balance to play in space and will probably need to stand up at linebacker for his best shot at the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
