Markus Golden

School: Missouri
Position: DE
Bio: Moved into a starting role on a full-time basis last season then recorded career totals of 78 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. All-conference selection in 2014. Junior totals included 13 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks when he came off the bench.
Positive: Terrific college pass rusher with average size/speed numbers for the next level. Fires off the snap, plays with good pad level and can bend off the edge. Fast up the field, easily changes direction and effective pursuing the action from the backside, displaying the ability to run down ball handlers. Fluid moving to every direction of the field, plays with excellent balance and rarely off his feet. Wedges through double-team blocks and possesses an explosive closing burst. Works his hands throughout the action and nicely redirects to runners.
Negative: Easily disrupted from his angle of attack by the initial block. Lacks top long speed. Handled by a single opponent.
Analysis: Golden has developed his game the past two seasons and is a disruptive defender who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. He offers potential at the next level as a designated pass rusher.
