Once establishing himself in his new position, Green would play in 11 games his second year on campus before earning the starting job his junior year.

After completing a stellar junior campaign which saw his Clemson team play for the national championship, Green entered the 2016 NFL Draft where he was selected in the second round by the Indianapolis Colts.
