Eddie Goldman, DT, FSU
Goldman is another tackle who, while he has some of the tools you need you need to succeed in the NFL, he also has many of the flaws which can prevent you from doing so.
While Goldman is powerful at the point of attack, he has mediocre upfield burst who can struggle against the guards at times and gets locked up a bit too often. Overall, he has yet to show he can bring a ton to pass-defense, and is inconsistent when rushing the quarterback.
That’s assuming he can even generate rush, as he gets too tall at times and manhandled by the interior of the offensive line. If you want a first round defensive tackle, he either has to be able to fit more than one scheme or be overpowering in more than one facet of the game.
Goldman is neither, but on occasion he seems to sneak into the first in mocks and rankings. If a team selects him there, he’s going to disappoint, at least in the short term.
