OT Luke Goedeke, Central Michigan

6’5″ – 312 lbs. – N/A

Originally attended UW-Stevens Point, where he started four games at tight end before transferring to Central Michigan. Started a total of two seasons with the Chippewas, missing the 2020 season after sustaining a season-ending knee injury. Solidly-built player who carries his weight well. Level of refinement is impressive for someone who began their career as a tight end. Effective in the run game because he brings a lot of power and demonstrates impressive grip strength. Generally does a pretty good job of playing within his frame. Does a nice job of lining up second-level opponents and engaging with form, although his overall movement skills are closer to adequate. Works hard to sustain through the whistle, with nastiness to finish. Natural knee-bender with a sound base and plenty of functional strength to absorb power. Lacks the lateral quickness to recover when he sets up too far inside. Hand placement can be a little bit wide. Kickslide can look a little bit lumbering with distance, and he often has to sell out to try and protect the edge against true speed rushers playing from wide alignments, opening himself up to inside moves/counters. Could be considered a potential candidate to slide inside at the next level, but not necessarily.
