Virginia security Juan Thornhill is a single of the 30 prospects from the 2019 NFL Draft to be hosted by the Eagles for a stop by in Philadelphia, according to Andrew DiCecco.
Thornhill is play-generating defensive back. He completed his 4 years of college with 208 total tackles, 26 passes defensed, 13 interceptions, 12 tackles for loss, 1.five sacks, and a single forced fumble.
BGN’s Michael Kist previously wrote about Thornhill:
Nabbing 13 interceptions in the final 3 years and six in 2018 ought to land you on any “playmaker” list. Opinions will be mixed on Thornhill as he is not a especially splashy player with higher-finish traits, but it is tough to argue with that variety of ball production. You also can not knock him for versatility Thornhill played in a range of alignments all through his profession at Virginia. Outdoors corner, nickel corner, linebacker, no cost security and so on, he has encounter wearing distinct hats. Thornhill had a quiet week at the Senior Bowl, as did just about each and every security there. General, he’s nevertheless a strong prospect with the possible to see his name named on Day two of the NFL Draft.
Extra scouting report from NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein:
3-year starter who proved he could bring his instincts and ball abilities with him from cornerback to security in 2018. Thornhill’s size and cover talent ought to let defensive coordinators the freedom to deploy him about the field in a range of approaches based on the matchups and his operating mate at security. Though he could garner consideration as a corner, security provides him his most effective chance to turn into an early starter.
These descriptions make Thornhill sound like a player in the Malcolm Jenkins mold. The Eagles could choose Thornhill with a single of their two second-round picks and hope he beats Andrew Sendejo out as a third security in 2019. Thornhill could potentially take more than as a complete-time starter in 2020 with Jenkins turning 32 in December and Rodney McLeod set to be a no cost agent subsequent year.
