Prediction: If Goldman is there in the second round, he should be considered by the New Orleans Saints. Would choose Malcolm Brown over him. Will need time to develop.

Draft Profile of Eddie Goldman

Defensive Tackle

STRENGTHS:

Declared early for draft.  Thick from head to toe with long arms and a wide frame.  Explosive out of stance and stays below pad level for leverage.  Plays with nice bend and is rarely moved back.  Can anchor his position on the line.  Quickness to move behind the line of scrimmage and disrupt QB play.  His best play will be in the interior of the line. Bull rusher.

WEAKNESSES:

Lacks speed in pursuit.  Short field player.  Concentration lapses and can be found out of position. Production does not match physical capabilities.  Needs to upgrade his hand movements to block and counter block effectively by getting to shoulder of offensive linemen instead of meeting him squarely.

NFL COMPARISON:

Corey Liuget and Randy Starks
