08:28 PM ET 01.24 | Texas Longhorns wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is putting his skills on display for NFL personnel and scouts in Mobile, Ala., during this weeks Senior Bowl practices. The speedster has been turning heads and showing an all-around game that will have him shooting up draft boards until April's draft. Goodwin is known for his accomplishments on the track, but he has shown that he was under-utilized by the Longhorns as a football player. The 22-year-old is a four time All-American in track and field and even made the 2012 United States Olympic Track Team. During the London Olympics, Goodwin qualified for the finals in the long jump, but manged to only land himself a 10th place finish. Now, we shift to the football field. In Mobile, Goodwin has been catching everything that has been thrown his way. It was important for Goodwin to come to the Senior Bowl and show that he is more than a player with world class speed. There was some concern that Goodwin could be limited to a 9-route runner in the NFL, but he has shown the league that he is a more complete receiver. On top of the world class speed and impressive hands, Goodwin has displayed incredibly crisp route-running.

If number 12 is traded he would be a perfect fit in Minnesota who has no speedy receivers.
