Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conferences honors every season since his sophomore campaign. Senior totals included 156/10/1 with one interception and eight pass defenses. Junior numbers included 113/8/3, when he also intercepted three passes.
Pos: Consistent, playmaking linebacker with outstanding instincts. Quick diagnosing plays, immediately locates the ball and consistently positions himself to make the play. Gets adequate depth on drops, solid in zone coverage and stays with assignments. Can run with tight ends or backs in coverage. Solid special teams player who has blocked kicks in the past.
Neg: Lacks an explosive break to the pass. Does not display great speed to the flanks.
Analysis: A high-character prospect with great work ethic, Greenway is a well-rounded linebacker with a complete game. Not flashy yet a three-down defender who could quickly move into a starting lineup at the next level.
