Round 3, Pick 90: EDGE Jonathan Greenard

Recommended Posts

Overview

Athletic, intelligent edge defender with enticing flashes as both a run defender and pass rusher. Greenard's plus get-off and ability to bend and corner the edge are predictive traits for success as an NFL rusher but he'll need a more reliable go-to counter as a pro. He's tough and aware at the point of attack and plays with consistent leverage and motor. Edge defenders need forceful hands to set edges and open doors as a pass rusher and his hesitation to unleash his right hand after suffering a major wrist injury in 2018 is a concern. If his hesitation is more mental than physical, he should become an eventual starter in either an odd or even front.

Solid pick, I'm fine with the pick as it's a definite need. He lead Louisville is sacks, was out all next season, then transferred to Florida and stepped up in a big way against tougher competition. What's crazy is he had ankle issues his senior season and still producer 15.5 TFL and 9.5 sacks. I prefer him over Zuniga, who went earlier in round 3. The effort is there, he just needs to refine his technique. He's aggressive and plays hard, but that can work against him at times. Still, the effort, production, and athletic ability is there. It's up to the coaching staff to help him further his pass rushing ability and develop him further. A solid, reasonable pick at a position of need.
