I don't know these players well enough to comment. Just reading BA's reports, Green could be a utility player relatively soon. The outfielder from Michigan was rated 32 by BA and could do well in the minors, could play a fourth outfielder role relatively soon.
Reds don't want to spend high picks on guys who are six years away. They are focused on the relative near term IMO.
