Baylor cornerback Packers’ sixth-round pick

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 10, 2014 – 3:45 pm

140510-goodson-demetri-300GREEN BAY–Baylor cornerback Demetri Goodson is the Packers’ sixth-round draft choice.

Goodson, 5-11, 194, twice suffered season-ending injuries. The most recent was in 2012.

He made 43 tackles (38 solo), 19 passes defensed and four interceptions in 19 career games played. He’s a former basketball player that transferred to Baylor from Gonzaga.

Goodson ran a 4.52 40 at the combine in Feb.

“Tough, athletic corner with nice size and speed and good mechanics. Fluid, quick and rangy. Special teams type,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said.

His older brother, Mike, has played running back with the Panthers, Raiders and Jets.

Packers.com has posted a more complete version of this story.

    Season ending injuries! Should fit right in.

    Nfl.com’s profile is as an undrafted free agent, but Bleacher Report’s says fourth round. What’s up with that?

    well he will have plenty of company in the trainers room

    Hey why don’t the draftniks give us more conversation. Our last draft pick they gloss by and then give pats all that face time.

    It’s called a difference of opinion. That’s why all of this is so interesting. ESPN, in there infinite wisdom, just gave him a pretty good evaluation. My thought is this is a good pick in the 6th round for a guy who can develop over a year or two into a guy who looks more like a first or second rounder but I’m not a draftnic and spent about no time studying the draft. Oh well, what’s that they say about opinions?

    Could Brett Smith QB from Wyoming be an option in 7th RD?

    I think he is a longgggg shot to make team and a project nonetheless.

    Thinking this guy could be a BEAST on special teams while he develops his coverage skills. Jarrett Bush isn’t getting any younger. Not a bad pick for the 6th round, although I’m still looking at Bullough sitting there thinking what a steal he’d be…

    Hoping the Pack goes with OT Richardson or SS Dixon with their final pick. I am really happy with the positions picked, tho our 3rd round picks would have probably been available later.

    This seems to be a weird pick. Don’t we have other needs than a cornerback?

    Ahmad Dixon was the best Baylor DB available. I love BU, but Green Bay got this one wrong.

    Good comment Margaret R. What is so great about a 5’11” DB playing against the +6′ recievers. Get DBs that are at least 6 feet tall.

    The TRUTH is, we don’t know how this kid is going to turn out. How many low round picks end up blossoming in the NFL? Just look at the Super Bowl winning Seattle Seahawks secondary. All but one, drafted in the 5th round or later. Don’t judge this guy because his name isn’t Clowney.
