Bills third-round pick Marquise Goodwin from Texas not only has elite speed, but world class speed clocking a 4.27 40-time at the NFL Combine. Here’s how he stacked up to some of Tavon Austin’s measurable at the NFL Combine back in late February.

Player    College     Ht        Wt     40    10 Yd   Reps Vertical Broad Jump
T.Austin    WVU     5’8 1/2  174     4.34    1.45       14        32            10’0
M.Goodwin Texas  5’8 7/8 183     4.27    1.43       13         -              11’0

Goodwin had an astounding 42-inch vertical at his pro day and an 11’5″ broad jump.

Though Austin was the featured player in West Virginia’s offense, Goodwin found it hard to get consistent playing time on offense, due mainly to the time he missed in spring practice when he was running track. But Goodwin doesn’t envy guys like Austin.

“No, definitely not envious whatsoever. I’m a real Christian guy and in the Bible envy is a sin,” said Goodwin. “I try my best not to sin as much as I can. I really don’t look at Tavon Austin and look at myself and try to compare both he and I because we’re two different individuals, definitely have two different opportunities. With that being said I definitely don’t envy what he has. I’m really happy for him actually.”
