Najee Goode, Inside Linebacker

The Philadelphia Eagles have a strong Inside Linebacker duo in DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks. The depth behind them was a mystery last season. When Mychal Kendricks suffered a knee injury last season in week 10 against the Green Bay Packers, Najee Goode stepped in and played well. He started the next game versus the Washington Redskins, and put together a nice game. He showed he’s a capable backup that flashed potential as a Linebacker and Special Teams ace. With DeMeco Ryans getting up there in age (will turn 30 next week), Goode has a fair chance to start in the future alongside Kendricks. At 25 years old, Eagle fans should monitor if Goode has improved after a solid year. This Training Camp and Preseason, Goode could be auditioning for a bigger role in the Defense, not just for this season, but in the future as well.
