Long-term Prognosis


Offensive TackleParis, TexasThis prognosis is truly a tribute to the talent of Good but even in spite of Oklahoma's tremendous talent along the offensive line Good will play next season. The biggest problem for most young lineman is catching up with the strength of their more experienced teammates and opposing defensive linemen. However, in Good's case he may walk into Norman as the team's strongest lineman and will be ready to go from minute one. He won't start, but Good could very well be in the rotation from day one at tackle.Assuming nothing else happens, Good has a chance to be one of the special linemen in Oklahoma's history. His mixture of strength, talent, and work ethic makes him one of the real names to watch from the class of 2008.
