I had the joy of watching Godfrey in person for the last four years in the friendly confines of Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. He showcased his versatility at Iowa, playing well at both safety and corner. His ball skills are great, and his coverage skills are exceptional. He gave up zero TD passes in 2007. Coming from the safety position, he can also hit with the best of them, although his technique stays sound even when he “lays the wood”.
At the scouting combine, he ran a 4.43, while putting up a respectable 14 reps along with solid times in the cone drills. His older brother, Ell Roberson — former QB for Kansas St. — showed the same type of quicknes during his days for the Wildcats.
Look for the Patriots to target Godfrey with their first of two 3rd Round picks — his signing bonus might even pay for the tattoo removal.
