The Arizona Cardinals met with Texas A&M offensive lineman Kenyon Green recently, reports NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport adds that after meeting with the Cardinals, Green was in Dallas for a visit with the Cowboys on Thursday.

Green started all 12 games for the Aggies last season, showcasing his versatility at four different positions along the offensive line.

“(NFL teams) say (versatility) is very important and very rare,” Green told reporters at the 2022 NFL Combine. “I’m blessed and able to play different positions, show my talent at different positions. I’m grateful for it.”

If selecting Green is the route the Cardinals want to go in the first round, they’ll likely have a chance to pick him at No. 23.

In ESPN analyst Todd McShay’s latest mock draft released Tuesday, Green is slated to go 28th to the Green Bay Packers. Fellow ESPN analyst Mel Kiper’s draft board has Green as the 24th-best prospect in this year’s class.

Adding another high-end bodyguard to the mix for quarterback Kyler Murray wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing for Arizona, especially if a contract extension is on the way for the signal caller.

Arizona’s starting offensive line appears set, but left guard Justin Pugh is in the final year of his contract, while recently signed right guard Will Hernandez is coming off a pair of down seasons and is getting his feet wet in head coach Kliff Kingsbury’s offense for the first time.

NFL Network’s Lance Zierlein compares the Green to Richie Incognito and feels the prospect has a chance to be a starter very quickly thanks to run-blocking ability.

Guard prospect with NFL-ready frame who plays with an impressive level of consistency as a run blocker. Green moves defenders from Point A to Boint B against their will, using hand technique and road-grading leg drive. He possesses adequate foot quickness to operate in a variety of run schemes, but needs to eliminate his tendency to grab when his opponent is slipping away from the block.
