2016 NFL Draft: Jaguars select Jonathan Woodard

New, comments

The final player for the Jaguars in the 2016 NFL Draft and it's another defensive end!

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made what looks to be their final selection of the 2016 NFL Draft and it's defensive end Jonathan Woodard out of Central Arkansas.

That makes three (three!) defensive ends in the draft for the Jaguars -- Yannick Ngakoue out of Maryland, Tyrone Holmes out of Montana, and now Jonathan Woodard out of Central Arkansas. Woodard is a 6' 6" player, weighing 271 pounds, and earned the 2014 Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year award after leading the league in tackles for a loss and sacks.

Woodard came into the 2015 season second on the career sack list at Central Arkansas with 25 over his college career, trailing Mike Coffman by five. He finished with 30.5 sacks in his career, beating the record by 5.5 sacks.
