Accustomed to carrying heavy workloads on a run-first team. Experience in a traditional pro-style offense. Excellent feet. Exceptional agility working in traffic. Possesses anticipatory vision to find a crease before it opens and slip through. Tremendous acceleration through the hole. Will burst through a crease in space. Great pacing and cutback vision on outside zone runs. Accelerates to capture the perimeter and has some breakaway speed. Good patience behind the line of scrimmage. Very decisive in the open field. Terrific juke move. Excellent spin move on the second level. Impressive overall elusiveness. Extremely capable receiver that was involved on a weekly basis. Dangerous on angle routes out of the backfield. Used on drag routes when lined up as a wide receiver and catches smoothly. Shows ideal patience to set up screen passes. Willing to do the work as a pass protector. Has experience as a wildcat quarterback.



Can dance a bit when faced with backfield penetration and fails to maximize yardage. Contact balance is just OK with limited power. Ball security needs to be cleaned up. Will sometimes lower his eyes into contact as a pass protector. Might be viewed as more of a complementary option at the next level due to size.


NFL comparison

Aaron Jones



Overall, Goodson is an experienced runner that best transitions to a zone scheme and can be a big factor in the passing game. Although he doesn’t have the same level of strength or contact balance, Goodson has the potential to be used like Aaron Jones in Green Bay, and he is being similarly overlooked.
