Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin is on many NFL teams’ radars.
Now a strong showing at the NFL Combine coupled with his game tape has him scheduled for more visits with teams ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft.
A source tells Sporting News that Godwin will visit with the Detroit Lions next week, the Baltimore Ravens on April 11 and the New York Jets on April 12. Godwin also will visit with the Eagles the following week, followed by a two-day visit with the Tennessee Titans, the source said.
Godwin, who had 982 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns last year as a junior, already has visited with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the New Orleans Saints and the Pittsburgh Steelers among other teams.
Godwin’s performance in Penn State’s Rose Bowl loss to USC was epic: nine catches for 187 yards (a Penn State record for receiving yards in a bowl game) and two touchdowns.
