It was announced that the Buffalo Bills have came to terms with their first second round pick (41st overall) Robert Woods. Terms won’t be released for a while, but last year fellow Bill Cordy Glenn (whom was also the 41st pick) received a four-year, $4.715 million deal, so it’s likely that Woods will get approximately four years and $4.8 million with about a $2 million signing bonus.

Woods has been an exceptional route runner ever since he stepped foot in Los Angeles in 2010. Besides being a great wide receiver, Woods is also a track star where he ran a 200 meters in 21.04 seconds and 400 meters in 46.17 seconds. Not only is he fast with the ability to run great routes, he possesses good vision and a strong burst with the ball in his hands as well. He flashes the ability to catch passes away from his frame with his hands, and he can make catches in traffic as well as track passes over his shoulder.

Woods should be an amazing complement to Stevie Johnson and fellow rookie speedster Marquise Goodwin. He could get a lot of targets from whomever quarterbacks the Bills come week one. If the quarterback is E.J. Manuel, the Bills could surprise the NFL this year and put up a winning record because of the fact that him and Woods apparently have extremely strong chemistry together which is a huge thing for two rookies coming into the league. All in all this could be an exciting year, and all that’s left for the Bills is to sign Manuel which should happen sooner rather than later.
