Shonn Greene (born August 21, 1985) is an American football running back for the New York Jets. He was drafted by the Jets in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football for the University of Iowa.

Greene attended Winslow Township High School in Atco, New Jersey. He was starting running back and linebacker during his junior and senior years. In his junior year, Greene rushed for 1,267 yards and 18 touchdowns in 221 attempts earning first team all-conference, all-South Jersey, and all-state honors. He followed that with 1,378 yards and 16 touchdowns on 172 attempts as a senior earning first team all-conference and second team all-state. Greene also recorded 191 career tackles and one interception on defense.

Greene attended the University of Iowa, but missed the entire 2007 season when he left the University due to academic deficiencies. He enrolled at Kirkwood Community College, improved his grades, and returned to the University in 2008. Greene had a breakout season that year, winning the 2008 Doak Walker Award given to the nation's outstanding collegiate running back, and becoming the first Iowa player to win the honor as well as the first player to win it despite not having been on the team the previous season. He finished the season with 1850 yards rushing and 20 touchdowns; after the Hawkeyes won the 2009 Outback Bowl on January 1, 2009, Greene announced he would enter the 2009 NFL Draft. Greene was the only player that year to rush for over 100 yards in every game. On October 23, 2010, Greene was named Honorary Captain for Iowa's game against Wisconsin.
