2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
Goode started nine games as a redshirt freshman in 2017 (46 tackles, 5.5 for loss, one interception, three pass breakups) but missed the final three games of the year due to injury. Goode only started one game in 2018, making three tackles and intercepting a pass before a lower-body injury ended his season. He returned his two interceptions in 2017 and 2018 for scores. Goode started 12 of 13 games in 2019, however, and led Cal with 14 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks among his 57 total tackles. Pac-12 coaches named him honorable mention all-conference for his efforts as a junior. In 2020, he tied for second in the FBS with two tackles for loss per game (eight total), led Cal with three sacks among his 19 stops, intercepted one pass and broke up two others in four starts. Goode was an honorable mention all-conference selection by Pac-12 coaches in 2021, topping the Bears with nine tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks among his 46 total tackles in 11 starts. Cameron's father, James, played football at Oklahoma and was a fifth-round draft pick of the Atlanta Falcons in 1991. -- by Chad Reuter
High-cut 3-4 outside linebacker with the movement and motor to make positive plays in the run and pass games. Goode's size and strength won't excite evaluators, but the ability to convert effort into disruption is hard to ignore. While his athletic ability should translate to the next level, he might not be able to add much more functional mass and power to handle NFL offensive tackles. Goode's slippery rush could be worth a longer look if he can prove himself as a special teams performer but he might need to make a more full-time move from the edge to 4-3 outside linebacker.
Positives: Athletic linebacker who was a solid pass rusher on the college level. Effectively diagnoses plays, stays with assignments, and gives a lot of effort. Breaks down well and uses his hands to protect himself. Easily changes direction and immediately alters his angle of attack. Gets depth on pass drops. Terrific special-teams player who works to get downfield on coverage units.
Negatives: Lacks pursuit speed. Struggles in coverage. Marginally effective making plays in space.
Analysis: Goode is an enigma of sorts, as he possesses the athletic testing numbers to be an off-ball linebacker. Nonetheless, he was primarily used as a pass rusher for Cal, where he excelled. He has special-teams ability that will be his ticket to the next level, though Goode must improve his play in space and on passing downs.
Rating: 75.01 (Chance to start)
Pro Comparison: Jonathan Cooper
Chippy, well-rounded OLB with legitimate pass-rush ability on the outside. Decently explosive. Flashed a nasty dip, too. Not a pass-rush plan technician but appears to be agitated with blockers hands enough that he's very active using his arms. Rip move is good, uses a swipe, too. Often surprises with his speed-to-power conversion. Plays with high energy, and will circle back to the QB if he feels he's being pushed past. Change of direction is solid. Very comfortable dropping into short zones. Length is a plus, pops on film. Has off-ball linebacker look in those scenarios.
Weird tendency to actually raise up as he gets off the snap. Bend is solid but unspectacular. Not a ton of power to his game. Spin move needs work. Has to get bigger/stronger. Speed once he gets going is more impressive than his get-off.
Position: Wide Receiver
School: Texas Tech
Current Year: Redshirt Junior
Height: 6’1 7/8″
Weight: 209 pounds
Ezukanma has enough speed to threaten vertically and the body control to make back-shoulder catches. He does a good job of getting inside leverage on slants and using his frame to shield defenders from the ball. Ezukanma is a big target who flashes the ability to make tough, contested catches, but he's not a natural hands catcher and drops balls he should catch. -- Steve Muench
Ezukanma (pronounced ez-zoo-comma) signed with Tech's high-flying offense after earning MaxPreps Junior All-American status in 2017 with 20 receiving touchdowns at Timber Creek High School in Fort Worth. After he redshirted in 2018 (2-48-24.0 in two games), Ezukanma led the Red Raiders with 664 receiving yards (42 receptions, 15.8 per catch), starting six of 12 games played. The following year, he was the first Tech receiver to be named first-team All-Big 12 (led team with 46-748-16.3, six TDs) since Michael Crabtree in 2008. Ezukanma broke his arm during 2021 spring practices but returned to garner second-team all-conference accolades and lead the Red Raiders in receiving (48-706-14.7, four TDs; also 10-138-13.8, two TDs rushing). -- by Chad Reuter
Productive three-year starter with desired combination of size and foot quickness. Ezukanma has enough speed to get down the field and challenge coverage while displaying an innate sense for protecting and finishing contested catches underneath. The route tree has been limited by scheme, but he's not as polished with the routes he runs as he should be for his experience level. Size, ball skills and toughness work in his favor as a quality backup with some upside.

Pro Comparison: Gary Jennings
Bigger bodied wideout with flashes of outstanding yards-after-the-catch and downfield, difficult-grab ability. Balance and moments of power after the catch. Three years of similar big-play production in college.
More of a ball-tracking type than a leaper who'll rebound the football deep. Wasn't asked to run a variety of routes in college and not going to be a big-time separator at the NFL level although not totally stiff. Needs to get more physical at the line and during his routes.
Erik Ezukanma NFL Draft Profile
Ezukanma’s Combine/pro day results
Ezukanma has a stellar size/length/athleticism combination. With his traits, he can truly be a three-level threat at the next level. Ezukanma’s size is what stands out first. At 6’2″, 209 pounds, the Texas Tech WR has great range and density. He also has elite length, with arms that measured 33.5″ at the Combine.
Beyond his size, Ezukanma is an impressive athlete, and by extension, a tremendous run-after-catch threat. The Texas Tech WR has great lateral agility and elusiveness for his size. Furthermore, he owns superb explosiveness both off the line and in open space. Ezukanma has the burst to create and elongate space after the catch. He also has enough deep speed to stack defensive backs.
Going further with Ezukanma’s run-after-catch ability, one has to mention what might be one of his best traits — contact balance. Ezukanma has arguably elite contact balance for a receiver. His legs are always churning, and he can bounce off contact with his dense, well-balanced frame. He can swim through congestion, slip away from arm tackles, and his contact balance combined with his elusiveness makes for a dangerous mix.
