Misc.: Brother, Mike, plays running back for the New York Jets.

Analysis

Strengths

Excellent size. Good athletic ability, hand-eye coordination and ball production. Can turn and run vertical. Nice plant-and-drive -- breaks on throws. Has some upside. Comes from an athletic family and has NFL bloodlines.

Weaknesses

Concerning durability issues -- injury ended his season in 2011 (ankle) and '12 (arm) and cost him games in '13 (arm). Has short arms and small hands. Relatively inexperienced with green instincts. Press technique needs to be coached up. Loses separation at the break point. Limited tackle production -- gets stuck on blocks and doesn’t set a hard edge. Will be a 25-year-old rookie.

Bottom Line

An injury prone hoopster-turned-cornerback, Goodson is a height-weight-speed prospect who shows in flashes when he’s able to rely on his reactionary skills and natural athleticism to break up throws. However, he is overaged and relatively raw. He must distinguish himself at the combine to elevate his stock. Will get an extended look thanks to the increased demand for bigger corners.
