Strengths Weaknesses

Player Overview

Goodson is a former basketball star at Gonzaga who played point guard for a Bulldogs team that reached the Sweet 16. His brother, Mike, is a running back for the New York Jets.

Demetri Goodson transfered to Baylor in 2011 and saw action in four games as a reserve. Torn ligaments in his ankle ended Goodson's junior season on Oct. 8, but he returned to a starting roll last season.

Goodson earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors as a senior, leading the Bears with three interceptions and 16 pass break ups despite being limited to 11 games due to an arm injury.

He improved his 40-yard dash time from 4.52 to 4.46 and matched his 37-inch vertical jump from the Combine. Although unrefined, his natural athleticism makes him a draftable prospect.

Goodson's performance at the combine had him rising up many draft boards, and he reportedly vistited with at least half the NFL teams.

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 6/197 - Demetri Goodson, CB, 6-1, 195, Baylor...The converted basketball player (at Gonzaga before transferring to play football at Baylor) comes in as a 24-year-old rookie. After having only one full season as a starter under his belt after missing most of the 2012 campaign because of a broken arm, Goodson will be a pet project for cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt, a la former receiver Sam Shields as an undrafted player in 2010. - The Sports Xchange
