2016 NFL Draft: What grade are you giving Jaguars pick Jonathan Woodard?

New, comments

The Jaguars have made what looks to be their last pick and it's another defensive end. Do you like it?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected little-known pass rusher Jonathan Woodard out of Central Arkansas. It's the third pass rusher for the Jaguars in this draft.

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.

He's not a well-known prospect, but Woodard will certainly compete for a spot in that rotational pass rushing role. What grade do you give the Jaguars for picking him in the seventh round?
