The Jaguars have taken an interest in the former University of Washington defensive end, Greyson Gunheim. So much so, that they've arranged for the Sebastopol, California native to make a cross country trip to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium to work out in the middle of April.
At 6'5", 256 lbs., Gunheim is likely too small to be an every downs defensive end, and would probably best be suited to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Gunheim had mixed success during his collegiate career as battled nagging injuries and still earned All-Pac-10 honorable mention as a junior. Gunheim has great physical abilities, as he ran as low as a 4.64 40 yard dash, but he has a reputation for being somewhat of an underachiever.
Gunheim didn't play with much defensive talent around him, which made for some disappointing numbers in his senior year, as he finished with just 41 tackles, 5 sacks, and 3 passes defensed. The porous defense led to Washington's tough season in which they finished with a 4-9 record. Gunheim was one of the defenses vocal leaders, and spoke of frustration in this post game interview after a loss to Oregon–
"It was pretty obvious after watching the game, after watching the film, that people weren't trusting each other. After watching that, some of the seniors are fed up with how everything's going and with losing."
Gunheim entered his senior year ranked as the 13th best defensive lineman, and likely a mid-fourth to fifth-round draft pick. After his disappointing 2007 campaign, NFL Draft Scout ranks him as the #33 defensive end, and Scout.com has him rated as the #26 defensive end. Gunheim is not expected to be selected in next month's NFL draft.
