PLAYERS
Travis Goethel
Position: ILB
Class: 4Sr
School: Arizona State
Conference: Pacific-10
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 240
40 Time: 4.81
Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior. Totals last season included 57/7 after 71/7.5 as a junior.

Positives: Marginally athletic prospect with terrific instincts. Effectively diagnoses the action, remains disciplined with assignments, and positions himself to make plays on the ball. Aggressively works to get involved in the action, puts his shoulders into the ball-carriers, and is a hard hitter. Shows a good nose for the action.

Negatives: Lacks top lateral speed and is not fast to the flanks. Not a quick or sudden defender.

Analysis: Goethel is a thinking man's football player with a terrific head on his shoulders. He makes up for his lack of athleticism with his ability to diagnose plays as they unfold. Could back up in the middle for a conventional system at the next level.

Projection: FA
