Top Ten Atlanta Falcons Players Under 25

Oct 12, 2014; Atlanta, GA, USA; Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte (22) gets tackled by Atlanta Falcons defensive end Malliciah Goodman (93) in the second quarter of their game at the Georgia Dome. Mandatory Credit: Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports actually has Malliciah Goodman as the second worst pass rusher on the team in 2014, but I really don’t know what film they were watching.

It’s clear that Goodman has the ability to shine in Dan Quinn’s aggresive system. Frequently last season, half the time I saw him stay at the line of scrimmage because the coaches didn’t let him go full out on the quarterback. Let the man play!

But when he did rush the passer, Goodman was actually more effective then many others in this dreadful 2014 year. And at a young age of 25 years old, potential is recorded on his fate.
