Godfrey: the ball is in the air, it's my ball
Godfrey doesn't know where he's going to play for the Panthers, but the common perception amongst the fan base is that he'll be a free safety. To him, he doesn't care where he plays; he just wants to be on the field.
"I've had a meeting with a lot of teams, and they asked me about playing free safety or corner and possibly playing some nickel, also," said Godfrey. "That was one thing about my value coming in was being able to play more than one position in the secondary. It doesn't matter whether I play corner or safety. Anywhere I can be on the field and make plays would be good for me."
The Panthers also got a decent special teams player, as well.
"That is one thing about Iowa, we take a lot of pride in special teams," Godfrey said. "I started playing my freshman year. They tried to take me out a little my senior year, because I was starting at cornerback, but I told them no. I trained and I've been training all year to handle that load. I played all four years, and it was great. I'm looking forward to being able to play special teams right away also."
Godfrey should compete with veteran pick-up Terrance Holt for playing time at free safety. Ideally, you plan for your third round picks to start. Godfrey should not have a tough learning curve due to his familiarity with the position.
