    When I watch Gooden on tape he stands out, but for the wrong reasons. Yes he's fast, but he's always out of place.

    With some quality coaching this kid could be something.

    JCBRAVE high fives this.

    Sounds a lot like our Zach Brown assessment around this time.

    Which is why I haven't yet flipped out on Ruston and company for drafting him so early.

    On paper this kid is a stud, impressive test scores all across the board, but on film he sucks LOL

    Much like Keith Bulluck when he was a rookie. And he figured it out.

    This will be a good guy for Chet Parlavecchio to develop. If Gooden becomes anything, I'll believe in Chet Parlavecchio.
    The Hammer high fives this.

    I was really wrong about Z. Brown, I pray that i'm wrong about Gooden.

    Actually I always see him playing contain on the run. Keeps the runner to the inside giving his teammates the chance to tackle. He did faulter a few times on this and allowed big runs, but for the most part he didnt ATTACK the run, he controlled it back inside. It could have easily been the scheme of the defense since he had to speed to cut off the edge, that that was his job.

    His pass coverage was overall less than impressive tho

    Thats what you think that is, him giving his friends some stats?

    I don't think that's what it is at all actually. I think it's just the scheme to contain runs from breaking outside. Pushing the runner back to the muddy areas is much better than trying to be a super hero and racking up single open field tackles... Or missing on them.
