BIOGRAPHY: Junior college transfer who was a three-year starter at Washington. Defensive totals included 50/1/10 as a senior after 80/1/3 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Physical, well-built safety who excels defending the run. Disciplined, stays with assignments and is constantly around the ball. Diagnoses the action, squares into ball carriers and wraps up. Nicely times pass defenses, positioning himself against the receiver.
NEGATIVES: Neither quick nor fluid changing direction. Hesitant in coverage and struggles in man situations.
ANALYSIS: Used at both corner and safety in college, Goldson is best facing the action in a zone system. Offers potential as a dime back/special teams player.
