was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the 4th Round with the #127 overall pick.

On the NFL Network tv set, LSU head coach Les Miles on Clemson's Goodman: He's a long guy with good bend, and his pass rush skills against LSU "really affected the game for us."

“Maybe the longest arms I’ve ever seen on a defensive end," ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay on Malliciah Goodman.

He also had the longest arms (36) and wingspan (over 87) at the 2013 Combine.

Goodman had 5 sacks in 15 starts, 41 total games at Clemson. In 2012, he had 9.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks, and four forced fumbles his senior year and also named honorable mention All-ACC performer.

He is the second Clemson player so far to be picked in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Goodman will have a chance for immediate playing time because the Falcons recently released veteran John Abraham.
