Making a move

Malliciah Goodman saved his best for last. In the Chick-fil-A Bowl win over LSU on New Year's Eve, Goodman caused all kinds of havoc.

Goodman finished the night with four tackles, three sacks and a pass breakup in 38 snaps against the seventh-ranked Tigers of LSU.

NFL Draft analyst Mike Detillier, who also works for the LSU radio network, was extremely impressed with what he saw from Goodman that night in the Georgia Dome.

"He made a highlight reel against LSU. That was a one-man show," Detllier told CUTigers earlier this week.

Now that his Clemson career has come to an end, Goodman is hoping to hear his name called sometime this weekend during the draft.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound defensive end finished his Clemson career with 150 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss and 12 sacks.

"He came out of high school as one of the most highly recruited defensive linemen in the country," Detillier said, "Never quite played up to that billing. I thought he was a good player at Clemson, never an elite player.

"He's flashed some pass rush skills that are intriguing. He's a little bit of a one-trick pony, technique-wise. He's going to have to learn how to use his arms and hands a little bit better, coming off that blocker a little quicker, develop a little bit more of an array of moves to get around offensive tackles."

Detillier likes the athleticism that Goodman displayed during his college career in Tigertown.

"When I look at him, great athlete, he certainly has some athleticism and can run the field well," Detillier said.
