Ourlads' Analysis:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAVON GODCHAUX: LSU, 6033 310 5.22. Junior entry from Plaquemine, LA. Three-year starter who played in a rotation. Played nose, three technique, and a wide five. A fringe athlete with size. Explosive with sideline to sideline agility. Solid ability to key and diagnose. Very good interior pass rusher with finesse, explosiveness, and a variety of moves. Can bend to get around linemen. Also finishes the play with a sack, pressure, or knockdown. Plays with energy and toughness. Relentless as a pass rusher. Strong tackler. Knocks the blocker’s hands down in pass pro. Below average run defender. Lacks strength and will have to get stronger. Struggles to shed blocks and has to avoid blockers instead of engaging. Can get driven out of the gap too easily. Needs to improve hand use and technique. Has to learn how use better technique to make plays in run game due to lack of strength. Has to improve ability to anticipate. A flash player with talent. Stops feet on contact at times, especially when he loses his knee bend. Grades out as a solid backup with good upside based on measurables. Will need pro physical development. 2016 stats: 62 T, 8.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 1 PBU, 3 QBH. Edge speed:left 2.01, right DNP, left hamstring pull. OSR:39/40 for DE. Fifth/sixth round.
