Woods had a great career at Louisiana Tech, where he posted 272 tackles, 20.5 for loss, an impressive 14 interceptions, and 18 pass breakups. He has good speed, is a sure fire tackler, good in coverage, is a hard hitter, and a defensive play maker. The only downside is that he is a bit undersized. With that said, I expect Woods to be taken on day 3, most likely somewhere in the 5th-6th round range when it is all said and done.
