Kirk Herbstreit includes Florida defensive lineman among top performing players in Week 12
Florida broke a two-game losing streak against Missouri on Saturday, and a big reason why was because of the play from pass rusher Jonathan Greenard.
The senior defensive end recorded six tackles, including 5.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks and a quarterback hurry in the victory. Florida defeated Missouri, 23-6.
With his performance, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit ranked Greenard fifth on his “top performing players” from Week 12 list. Greenard was ranked behind only Jalen Hurts, Shea Patterson, Kedon Slovis and A.J. Epenesa.
As most fans will know, those first three names are quarterbacks. Among defensive players, Greenard was ranked second on Herbstreit’s list.
Overall, Greenard has 46 total tackles, including 12.0 tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks in 10 games this season. He also has three pass breakups, eight quarterback hurries, one forced fumble, an interception and one fumble recovery, which he returned for a touchdown.
Florida is on a bye this week and will play the regular-season finale on Nov. 30 against Florida State. Check out Herbstreit’s entire Week 12 player performance rankings below:
