Strengths: A big back that is quick and explosive, a great fit for the new offense the Raiders will utilize this year. He also has great hands out of the backfield, and can be used out of the slot as a reciever as well, another reason he is a great fit for the new offense. Has good ability to make the defender miss in the open field.
Weaknesses: Goodson has had some problems with fumbling, something that he worked hard on during the offseason a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, we did not have an opportunity to see whether or not this work paid off as he missed all but 4 games of the season because of a hamstring injury. He has also had a history of knee and hamstring injuries.
