1st Pick of the 2013 NFL Draft: Marquise Goodwin

I think that the first pick of 2013 NFL Draft will be Marquise Goodwin. I think that it would be him, because he is young, explosive, and very fast. He won the NCAA outdoor long jump title in 2009, 2010 and 2011. He was also the two-time Texas Gatorade Track and Field Athlete of the Year and won World Junior Championships in the long jump and 4x100-meter relay. Not to mention his appearance in the Olympics, where he placed 10th in the long jump. He has many strengths including: his speed, strength, and the fact that he is not afraid to catch the ball over the middle. He also has good head fakes, protects the ball after the catch , and he has great awareness where he can tell when a defender is coming after him. Even though he has many strengths, like every rookie, he also has some weaknesses. These include his lack of size, his route running, his hand-eye coordination, and his running style. He might lack some size, but his athleticism is what the NFL scouts cannot ignore. Who do you think will be the first draft pick?
