Six NFL clubs have arranged either a private workout or a visit with Goldman, according to NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport: the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and Detroit Lions. That's a busy slate, given the 2015 NFL Draft is roughly four weeks away. By the time the first round commences April 30, Goldman's list of club interactions figures to be even longer.

Goldman projects as a late first- or early second-round pick, a range that would make him available at the right time for several of those clubs, including the Panthers (No. 25), Patriots (No. 32), Colts (No. 29), and Lions (No. 23).

One of the top interior defensive linemen in the draft, Goldman is known for his ability to stop the run and should provide an immediate boost in that area for whoever drafts him. At 6-4 and 336 pounds, he is best suited to play nose guard in a 3-4 defense or defensive tackle in a 4-3.
