2020 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills reportedly planned to meet privately with Jonathan Greenard

New, comments

Before the ban on pre-draft visitors, Buffalo was able to schedule meetings privately with two second-day prospects.

While the on-going ban on prospect visits has ostensibly affected the Buffalo Bills’ ability to meet with players at their facility, general manager Brandon Beane and the scouting department reportedly had on meeting on the books that may not take place for a while (if it happens at all). According to a report from NFL Draft Wire, the team has scheduled a private meeting—or workout—with an SEC prospect: Florida edge rusher Jonathan Greenard.

Greenard is battle-tested, coming from the SEC. He was a Florida State transfer who made the switch to the Gators his senior year. That move proved to be a good gamble, as he immediately established himself as one of the top pass rushers in the conference with 9.5 sacks, despite suffering injuries during the middle of the season. While he doesn’t have ideal size for defensive end, he has the flexibility and speed to be a true pass-rush threat.

With the meeting hiatus, it’s unclear if or when this meeting might actually take place now. Still, it provides a glimpse into the team’s thought process.
