The Tampa Bay Buccaneers really have a long list of potential prospects they are bringing in for a very important position.

According to Mark Cook of Pewter Report, the Bucs have scheduled a visit with Florida State running back Ryan Green. The visit is scheduled for next week.

Green, a local product who played his high school football in St. Pete for St. Pete Catholic, was a four-star prospect but was buried on a depth chart at FSU that carried the names of Dalvin Cook, Jaques Patrick and Cam Akers. Finding playing time wasn’t easy and despite being recruited by Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State and USC, Green was an outstanding teammate who understood his given role in Tallahassee and embraced it, even if he wanted to see more action.

Per Cook, the team was really impressed with Green when they went to FSU’s Pro Day to watch Derwin James. It is believed that Green caught general manager Jason Licht’s attention during the Pro Day session.

Green will not count towards the 30 in-house pre-draft visits teams are allowed to have since he is a local product.

He rushed for 326 yards on 30 touches and three touchdowns while at Florida State.
