7th round- Cameron Goode- C, it’s a 7th round pick, shame on you looking for an actual draft grade

The Miami Dolphins didn’t have a fifth or a sixth-round pick. But, they did have two 7th-round picks. Yeah, I know that doesn’t really mean anything and I imagine many of you don’t care. Honestly, I’m in no position to tell you you’re wrong. Their 7th-round picks and even though our favorite team drafted them, convincing ourselves that either of these guys is going to have any big contributions to the team seems very unlikely. Hope I’m wrong but that’s the reality of it.

Cameron Goode out of California was drafted with the 224 pick of the draft. Cameron Goode is an OLB and I am curious about what he can do. I wrote a small blog about who he is when was drafted. Admittedly, I know nothing about him besides that he was one of Cal’s best players and that the guy loves to work hard.

How I know that is that Cameron Goode had a 37-inch vertical and in one week he got it up to a 39-inch vertical. That’s a level of commitment and defiance of physiology that you simply don’t hear about too often.

I have no idea if he is going to be competing with the Andrew Van Ginkel’s of the world, but who knows? Maybe the kid is a stud and he just needs a chance. 7th-round picks are built for that kind of thought process. I’m all for thinking that.
