Detroit Lions draft preview DE Malliciah Goodman
Broke down some film on Clemson DE Malliciah Goodman (Auburn, LSU, Senior Bowl)
He had a nice year 7 sacks, 4 FF and 11tfl. He dominated LSU with a least 3 sacks and a huge PBU.
The combine: 6035 277 4.87 26 reps 31.5 Vj 906 broad.
Strengths: long arms and he plays hard. Has active arms that cause fumbles. Decent pass rusher. Does a good job slanting on twists.
Weaknesses: Not an elite pass rusher. Lacks a true burst. Does not make a lot of plays but when he does he causes fumbles.
Bottom line: Not a starter in the 4-3. Maybe a 4th end in a rotation. Could play the end in 3-4. The Lions should not draft this guy until the 5th or 6th round. Rating 6.1 rotational guy.
