Woods is 6-0, 201. He was USC’s second best WR (to Marqise Lee), but was still one of the best receivers in the country. Woods had a good season, but has become a hot name recently. He had a good showing at the Combine and then a great positional workout at his Pro Day.
I’m not nearly as high on Woods as others. We’ve seen more than a few USC wideouts have great careers and then struggle or fail outright in the NFL. Woods is talented. He was highly productive. I just have to say that I think the hype on him might be a bit much. He averaged 11.6 yards per catch for his career. He averaged 24.8 yards per KOR. He was just below 6 yards per PR. Those aren’t great numbers. Woods did have 32 TD catches in 3 years and that is impressive.
Some people think Woods could sneak into the bottom of the 1st round. The Eagles could be targeting him at pick #35. Chip Kelly would have interest because of Woods’ RAC ability. He can make big plays after the catch. He will work the middle of the field.
It is also possible this is a smokescreen. If the Eagles think teams in the middle of the 2nd round would want Woods, maybe someone would be willing to deal up for him.
Spending pick #35 on Woods would be interesting. Woods is more than just a slot receiver. This might make you wonder if Jeremy Maclin could be traded. Move Maclin to a contender and then draft Woods to replace him.
Watch his highlights and you’ll think Woods is a 1st Rd’er for sure.
Watch these games and you’ll see he’s good, but not special.
This is an interesting development, whether the Eagles have legit interest or are trying to set up a trade.
