Godwin was drafted in the 33rd round of the 2016 Major League Baseball amateur draft but decided to continue his time with the Bulldogs instead of chasing baseball. He had been named the team's Co-Newcomer of the Year after the 2015 season (nine starts in 13 games; 35-379-10.8, two TD receiving; 4-58-14.5 punt returns). Godwin was also the TaxSlayer.com Bowl Most Valuable Player with four receptions for 34 yards and a score as a receiver and a 44-yard touchdown pass. He started just 4 of 13 games as a sophomore but was still productive (38-397-10.4). He was a starter as a junior (14 of 15 games played), grabbing 38 passes for 639 yards (16.8 average) and scoring six times, including a big-game effort in the SEC Championship Game against Auburn (5-48-1). Godwin's senior season was derailed by various leg injuries early on, but he came back to start 9 of 13 games played (23-385-16.7, three TD).

Overview
Tall, thin slot receiver with soft hands, good field awareness and fluid routes. The word "natural" is accurate in describing Godwin's game, but short arms and lack of play strength are hurdles he will have to clear. If he can improve his press-release, he has a chance to become more than a backup with inside or outside value.
Strengths
  • Adjusts routes to avoid congestion and stay on time
  • Crisp, sharp routes with little wasted movement
  • Routes feature forward lean and consistent play speed
  • Able to tilt defender at the break point
  • Staccato settle-steps for quick in-and-out from his breaks
  • Fluid, soft hands when catching on the move
  • Plucks it with proper extension and decent radius
  • Quick gear-down to catch and dot feet near sideline
  • Was able to eat against Shrine Game cornerbacks. Adequate wiggle and speed after catch
Weaknesses
  • Slender frame with skinny legs and short arms
  • Play strength is a concern
  • Struggled to get off press against Vandy's Joejuan Williams
  • Lacks physicality at the top of his routes
  • Average burst out of breaks
  • Has tendency to drift out of turns and stems
  • Small frame and lack of length show up on contested catches
  • Needs to be more aggressive in work-backs to throws
