Goodwin is nothing like Hood. Being a good athlete doesn't mean their background was similar. Goodwin has always been a baseball player. Hood was a legitimate football guy. I don't necessarily want to say Goodwin was polished, but he definitely was much further down the developmental path than Hood. The gamble with Goodwin was based on some questions about him leaving UNC and sign ability, based on him being just a sophomore and potential top 10 pick the following year.
Exactly. Goodwin's advanced approach at the plate is enough to dispel any comparisons to Hood. The only questions I have about Goodwin at this point are around his defense. Everything else seems to be as advertised and on track so far.
