2012 NFL Draft: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select Najee Goode In Fifth Round

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have used the fifth pick in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft on West Virginia linebacker Najee Goode. Goode played both inside and outside linebacker for the Mountaineers, and is considered by many scouts to be a tweener at the position. Tampa Bay will need to decide how to utilize Goode at the next level, but he does have 3-4 and 4-3 base defense versatility, making him a possible gem this late in the draft.
