NFP Prospect Focus; DL Jonathan Bullard and OG Joshua Garnett

Jonathan Bullard – DE/DT – Florida Bullard is a fourth year senior. The former 5-star recruit played as a backup in 2012 and then started 8 of 11 games played in 2013. In 2012 he started all games and had 33 total tackles with 1.5 sacks. This season he started all games and had 63 total tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. He has played both inside and outside in the Florida scheme and also plays in a rotation. Size – 6030 – 285 – 4.82 (All Estimated) Strong Points – Has good size with the frame to get bigger. Has long arms. He is a good to very good athlete with quick change of direction, runs well and can change direction. Has excellent balance. Is strong and powerful. Has really good initial quickness and stays low. Shows strength at the point, can use his hands shed blocks and make plays. Reacts quickly and finds the ball. He is a top competitor, plays an aggressive game. Good pursuit player. Good pass rusher with both power and moves. Can play multiple positions. Weak Points – Lacks ideal height. Like most college lineman he needs to improve his overall hand use. Needs to get a little bigger. Summation – Bullard is a very good college player who projects to be a very good player at the next level. Plays both inside and outside for Florida and should be able to play in either a 4-3 or a 3-4 at the NFL level. He can play as a 3-technique in a 4-3 or as a 5-technique in a 3-4. He is a quick reacting player who finds the ball and is consistent versus both the run and the pass. Is a top competitor and plays with a high level of intensity. He should come in and start for a team in either scheme as a rookie and be productive. While he lacks ideal height for a 5-technique, he has long arms and is technique sound. He will most likely line up inside in pass rush situation. Assuming he tests well at the Combine, he should be a premium level draft choice. Joshua Garnett – OG – Stanford Garnett is a fourth year senior and a two year starter at left guard for Stanford. He played in every game with some starts as both a freshman and sophomore. He was rated as a 4 or 5 star recruit by the different recruiting services. Size – 6044 – 320 – 5.25 (All Estimates) Strong Points – Productive player with excellent size and good strength. He is productive as both a run and pass blocker. He is alert and does a very good job picking up stunts and blitzes. He competes and looks to finish on every play. Can get movement with his run blocks, adjust on the move in space and mirror in pass pro. Good overall had use. Efficient to the second level. Weak Points – He is good in all phases of the game but not great in any. Not a natural knee bender. Will bend some at the waist at times.  Not see much snap through his hips. Can fall off some blocks when he waist bends too much. Needs to improve hand use and also needs to get stronger and more powerful. Lacks real good speed to get to blocks in space. Summation – He is a very consistent performer at a high level of comp. Won’t start right away with a championship level team but should be a starter for most teams by year two. He is an adequate athlete and lacks top flexibility but he has been well coached and is for the most part technique sound. He has been a guard in college but may have a future at center. He needs to get a little stronger and work on his explosiveness as you don’t see much snap through his hips. A solid player but not a great player. Follow Greg on Twitter @greggabe
