Who is Jonathan Goff? I'm excited to find out

I don't know about you guys, but I am pumped up to see what Jonathan Goff can do at middle linebacker for the New York Giants Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Giants have been high on Goff since taking him in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He has shown flashes of athleticism and tackling ability on special teams. Now, we find out if the 6-foot-2, 236-pound second-year guy can be the Giants middle linebacker of the future.

I am not expecting the second coming of Ray Lewis on Sunday. And I'm not expecting a mistake-free performance. But, if he can show the ability to be stout in the middle, make plays sideline to sideline and get in the backfield once in a while that will be enough for me.

Here is a Goff highlight reel from his days at Vanderbilt.
