2012 NFL Draft: Najee Goode Drafted By Tampa Bay

One of the best things about Najee Goode is his versatility. He seemed to move from one linebacker spot to another his whole time at West Virginia. Wherever the team needed him, he filled the hole. He was also a walk-on at West Virginia. So that just make this story even sweeter. Obviously, he didn't get the same attention as Bruce Irvin. But he was every bit as integral to the success the defense has had the past two years.

Like Bruce, we hate to see Najee go. Going from a walk-on to permanent fixture, and then drafted is quite the story also. He wore the colors with pride and made himself into an NFL Draft pick. Tampa Bay made a wise choice today. Congratulations Najee!
