I hate to write this, but this analysis screams that Goodwin is a poorly coached player coming out of college.
Am I wrong? Here are some highlights-
01/24/2013 - 2013 SENIOR BOWL, WEDNESDAY RISER: WR Marquise Goodwin, Texas (North Team)...An Olympic athlete will always be an intriguing NFL prospect, but Goodwin's senior season on the football field was average at best. However, through three days of practice at the Senior Bowl, Goodwin has looked much more natural and polished in his routes and catching the ball. His world-class speed translates well to the football field and he looks much more flexible in his patterns and breaks, catching just about everything thrown his way. A prospect who looks much different from the tape, Goodwin is forcing scouts to go back and study more on the former Longhorn, but it wouldn't be surprising if Goodwin vaults into the early rounds, similar to Buffalo Bills wide receiver T.J. Graham a year ago. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
WEAKNESSES: Undersized at 5-9, 178 pounds, relegating him to a slot position. Can be jammed at the line, taking him out of the play. Lackluster senior season highlighted raw route-running. Generally failed to impress on film.

If anything it might be poorly utilized, but it ignores the fact that this is the first time he's focused solely on football for 7+ months since he got to Austin. That makes a lot if difference, too.
Didn't he miss 2-3 games due to being at the Olympics?
Took most the season to in football shape and timing down because of Olympics
He might have been focusing on the olympics, but one csnt deny that he was terribly utilized. Didnt he go like 4 straight games with only one ball thrown to him? Major gets him for one game and makes a star out of him. Terrible job by Harsin and Mack, of course. Just MO
My problem with this is that Marquise has been in the program for a full college career. He should know how to run crisp routes. If he didn't, then the coaching staff should have stressed that since their job is to get these kids in the NFL if possible.
It took him the season his junior year to have impact on the football field, missing all the 7 on 7 was problem the last two years
Kids get time to work on fundamentals during spring practice. Marquis wasn't a polished player coming into UT as he focused on track (which is why he wasn't essentially rated for football). We can blame Mack for a lot of things but Goodwin's development wasn't one of them.

He was under utilized, but he was a track guy playing football at UT. Now it seems he will concentrate solely on football, and it will do him well.
From watching him, he didn't run great routes, and didn't have stop and start moves in space. He did possess extreme acceleration and top end gear, but he's an under-sized split end. Whether or not he can become an inside guy is up to him.
Well, somebody is coaching him now because he ran good routes at the Senior Bowl.
#3 option WR for us, and Ash couldn't get him the ball. With Shipley and Davis at the top 2 options, it no wonder Goodwin couldn't get the ball...esp. since our dumbass coaching staff was hell bent on running the ball.
Don't know how you can blame Mack for Goodwins production. Harsin yes, Mack no.
I agree with this and he is a perfect type of player who may flourish in the NFL where he will practice much more than NCAA rules ever allowed.
I believe he never went through a spring practice as well/
I thought the same thing. MG would have benefited from having Major at OC for the last 2 seasons.
I disagree with the premise that he didn't run crisp routes or catch the ball well here. He's always been a natural catcher of the football since his freshman year with Colt. I agree that he was underutilized, but to me he never looked unnatural running routes and especially not catching the ball.
I blame Mack for everything. He is the head ball coach.
