2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

A fourth-round pick last year, Goodson barely saw the field. This year, he'll vie for the Giants starting middle linebacker job in camp, and he's even seeing work in nickel packages. Should he impress, he could stay on the field a good deal of the time and be a nice source of tackles.

2016

Fourth-round draft pick, competing for snaps at linebacker, but it's a crowded, if unimpressive, field.
