Overview:

Godchaux had a tremendous career at LSU, with 139 tackles, 19.0 for loss, and 12.5 sacks. He has great size, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, he is a run stuffer, he is a hard hitter, and he has good speed for a man of his size. He also bull rushes his way through the offensive line to get to the quarterback, and he is very versatile, as he can lineup as a defensive tackle, and a defensive end. He does over pursue at times, but that does not hurt his game. I see Godchaux as a day 2 pick, somewhere between the late 2nd, and early 3rd round when it is all said and done.
