Most everyone this year has been ignoring Robert Woods as an elite receiver this year. How many receivers have we seen be undervalued, only to become top notch?
I think Woods will be one of these guys. After watching tape of Woods, he is much quicker and more agile than guys like keenan allen.
His strengths are his good hands, strong route runner, excellent awareness. He always seems to anticipate where the tackle is coming from (like Reggie does).
At 6', 205 LBS, running a 4.5 forty, he is fast but not elite speed (like Reggie). However, his awareness, agility, high football IQ more than make up for that. I believe for those reasons, Woods will be the best receiver drafted this year when we look back.
I have been hoping the colts take him. Who knows.
And yes, I know he is projected second round, I suppose we could trade back, however i just have a sneaking suspicion that patriots might snatch him.
Remember, this is a guy who was a top 5 pick until this year...had an ankle injury, and Marquise Lee, for whatever reason, got more targets. also Qb issues this year.
Here is a link to his highlights....
