If it happens I think he may end up being a Safety like Lake, not really a starting CB. Here is a scouting report excerpt from nfl.com.


There are some concerns about his transition -- Godfrey isn't as fast on the field as his timed speed -- which could result in his being moved back to safety in the NFL, at least initially. There are some concerns, but Godfrey's physicality and raw athleticism will result in an early-round selection despite the fact that he remains a bit unpolished.

Rare combination of size and speed. ... Well-built athlete who has the physique of a safety and track star speed. ... Versatile, having played his first two seasons at safety before making the transition to cornerback for his junior and senior seasons. ... Flashed ability previously in his career, but enjoyed a breakout senior campaign. ... Rare pure speed. ... Significant improvement as a senior in terms of technique, play recognition and creating turnovers. ... Physical defender. ... Reliable open-field tackler who aggressively supports the run from his cornerback position.

As a 3 round pick he would be a steal...look for him to rise up the boards. We could use a Safety who is strong on run support but also has speed. He could also play Cb in the nickel and would be a very good special teamer....!!!

G'day guys. I have been away for 8 days and in that time loads of potential picks have come in for visits.

Its amazing how many are guys that we have all been throwing around.

Godfrey would be awesome at FS and nickel CB. I say bring him on.

Other visitors that I have had an eye on include Moore, Langford and my sleeper Ryan Torain (keep an eye out for him come day 2 or UDFA if we are really lucky).

Good to be back with my draft cap on.
