Detroit Lions draft preview OLB Zaviar Gooden

Broke down 3 films on Missouri OLB Zaviar Gooden (Tennessee, Georgia, Syracuse) plus work at the senior bowl. Gooden has off the charts measureables but lacks playmaking on film.

2012: 61 t 1 int
Combine:  6014 233 4.47 27 reps 34 Vj 1011 broad 4.17 20  6.71 ldrill

Strengths Can run down ball carriers. A good tackler in space. Good motor and makes tackles in pursuit. Can run with backs and TE in man.

Weaknesses: does not make plays. Totally lost in zone coverage. Does not disengage blockers.

Bottom line: a better athlete than football player. Will get over drafted because of his combine performance. Has upside as an OLB in the 4-3. I rate him 6.3 role player with starter upside.
