If you play defensive end/outside linebacker for the Florida Gators, you have to be versatile. Their edge guys possess the ability to stand up and play outside linebacker in the 3-4 defensive scheme, or they can play with their hand in the dirt in a traditional 4-3.
Team defensive coordinator Todd Grantham wants his guys to be aggressive. He wants his guys to fly around, and though the Gators’ 2019 season didn’t go as well as they might have liked, very little of the blame for that can be placed on Florida’s defense.
Jonathan Greenard is a six-foot-three, 263-pound prospect that scouts have graded everywhere from a late-first round pick to someone who can go in rounds two or three in April. That’s probably due to sketchy injury history.
In 2019, he racked up 50 total tackles while adding 9.5 sacks, an interception, three forced fumbles, and four passes defended to a resume that was truly a work of art. He sat out of the 2018 season after spending the first three seasons of his collegiate career with the Louisville Cardinals.
If Greenard isn’t snatched up by someone in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, it’s doubtful that he’ll be around for very long on Day 2.
