Overview:

Goodson has great size, is a run stuffer, is good in coverage, he is a good tackler, gets through the offensive line with ease, he is always in on the play, and has a non stop motor. He was also a tackling machine for Clemson. However he does not have great speed, he tends to get beat by fast backs, and he is not as experienced as some of the other outside linebackers in this years draft. With that said, I expect Goodson to be a mid round pick.
