Positives: Large and strong possession receiver who consistently comes away with the difficult reception. Tall target who nicely adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception in stride. Displays a sense of timing, stays focused and looks the ball into his hands. Stays low exiting breaks, uses his frame to shield away defenders and works hard running after the reception. Breaks tackles to pick up positive yardage and keeps the play inbounds. Solid blocker who stays square and turns defenders from the action, opening downfield lanes for running backs.
Negatives: Lacks a quick release off the line of scrimmage. Gathers into breaks. One speed-receiver who does not show a burst.
Analysis: Goda was consistent at Slippery Rock and also showed progress on the field. He possesses the ability to develop into a fifth receiver at the next level, and his downfield blocking will endear him to NFL coaches.
