Draft Rewind 2008 - Charles Godfrey - Carolina Panthers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about CHARLES GODFREY: Iowa, 5116 197 4.42. Two-year starter. Seven career interceptions. A cover two corner. Outstanding straight line speed. Plays best in press coverage. Willing to support the run. When he sees the ball in front of him, he drives hard on the ball. Excellent feet. Good backpedal. Stays on hip. Good in transition, but has some hip tightness. Will break down and wrap tackle on support. Rarely gets stuck on a wide receiver block. Active, athletic, and plays with good balance. Route awareness is one of his strengths. Has size, toughness, and play speed. Good short area quickness. Strong enough to reroute receivers. Solid ball skills. Played free safety early in his career. Receiver can get initial separation on him, but he can recover, close, and make a play. May need repetitions and extra board work, but has all the raw skills to succeed. Will contribute on coverage teams. OSR:21/32. BTR:left 4.65, right 4.38. Second/third round. (A-31, H-9 1/4, SS-4.42, VJ-32.5).
