PAC-10 wasnt a super amazing conference outside of USC back then, Washington was definitely not anywhere near a top tier program in the early 2000s, he was CB and this was before the craze of wanting big, lanky CBs so everyone said he would have to switch to safety, he might've had bad hip movement. I cant find his draft profile or anything but those are pretty good guesses.
Here's Goldson's draft profile-
POSITIVES: Physical, well-built safety who excels defending the run. Disciplined, stays with assignments and is constantly around the ball. Diagnoses the action, squares into ball carriers and wraps up. Nicely times pass defenses, positioning himself against the receiver. NEGATIVES: Neither quick nor fluid changing direction. Hesitant in coverage and struggles in man situations. ANALYSIS: Used at both corner and safety in college, Goldson is best facing the action in a zone system. Offers potential as a dime back/special teams player. PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
Hopefully we re-sign Goldson longterm and Robinson can provide solid depth (at least better than what we had before).
