Overview

Productive, physical and instinctive, Goff leaves Vanderbilt as one of the SEC's best linebackers. A two-time team captain and Second Team All-SEC pick, Goff is a physical inside linebacker who is at his best when attacking the line of scrimmage against interior runs. Despite his good straight-line speed, Goff may lack the burst to the flanks to be successful as a traditional middle man in the 4-3 alignment, but makes a lot of sense as 3-4 linebacker due to his physicality and ability to take on and shed blocks.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Looks the part. ... Thick upper body with room in his lower for additional muscle mass. ... Instinctive. ... Quick to attack the line of scrimmage, but shows good awareness and takes good angles to get depth. ... At his best as an inside run stuffer. ... Physical taking on blocks and has good hand usage to disengage. ... Reliable open-field tackler. ... Two-time team captain. Negatives: A bit stiff in his transition, giving him only marginal speed to the flanks despite good straight-line speed and instincts. ... Physical player, but doesn't explode into his tackles. ... Marginal flexibility and burst as a pass rusher on the blitz.
