Malliciah Goodman, DE (6-3 1/2, 273 pounds) - Goodman ran the 40-yard dash in 4.70 and 4.67 seconds. He recorded a 33-inch vertical, a 9-foot-9 broad jump, a 4.48-second short shuttle run and 7.10-seconds in the three-cone drill. He had the same reps (26) at 225 as at the NFL combine. His biggest measurable might be his nearly 37-inch-long arms. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
With Bowers going to the NFL, Goodman became a starter in 2011 as a junior and recorded a career-best 49 tackles. He saw his snaps diminish in 2012, but he did finish among the team leaders in sacks (7.0) and tackles for loss (9.5).
At 272 pounds, Goodman isn't the quickest or most explosive rusher off the edge, but he works hard to the pocket and has the strength to handle blockers in one-on-one situations.
The career statistics aren't gaudy (12 sacks) and he'll never be a double-digit sack artist, but Goodman brings intriguing tools to the table. He had a "wow" bowl game performance against LSU with three sacks, which brings the question: where was this intensity the rest of the season?
Nice job using his limbs to extend and make initial contact, working off blocks. Strong hands and length to strip and rip with a knack for forcing fumbles (eight career FFs). Physical run stopper and lined up mostly at 5-technique end spot at Clemson. Works hard to get underneath blockers and work around the arc to the pocket.
Weaknesses: Streaky snap anticipation and is late off the ball, routinely the last lineman to move. Needs to stay balanced through contact, spending too much time on the ground. Needs to develop more versatility with his pass rush moves, appearing to use the same motion on each snap. Tends to out-run the pocket and struggles to turn the corner.
Needs to use his arms and hands more aggressively when locked up. Looks tight when quickly changing directions. Spent too much time on the sidelines and had a "wow" bowl game, which prompts the question where was this intensity the rest of the season?
