2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jonathan Greenard, OLB, Florida Gators
Transfer from Louisville who started his lone season at Florida. Earned First Team All-SEC Honors and made 52 tackles (15.5 for loss) with 9.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and four pass breakups as a senior in 2019.
Missed the majority of the 2018 season at Louisville after he suffered a season-ending wrist injury on the first defensive series of the season. Started five games and made 48 tackles (15.5 for loss) with seven sacks as a sophomore in 2017.
Super-productive college pass rusher who gets the most from his ability. Plays with excellent pad level, works his hands throughout the action and keeps his feet moving. Easily bends off the edge, immediately changes direction and alters his angle of attack to flatten from the backside.
Displays a solid inside move and the ability to slice inside blockers, viciously attacks opposing quarterbacks and shows the ability to rush the passer out of a three-point stance and standing over tackle. Rarely off his feet, plays with balance and gives great effort. Works his hands and shows a variety of pass-rushing moves to get off blocks.
Shows nothing in the way of pursuit speed or an explosive closing burst. One-speed defender with average athleticism. Struggled during Senior Bowl week and really did not live up to expectations.
Except for the few games he struggled with injury, Greenard was a pass-rushing terror for Florida and haunted opposing quarterbacks. He lacks great upside, but he understands how to get up the field and makes the most of his ability, and Greenard should be a solid pass-rushing specialist at the next level.
