2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Robert Woods
When Matt Barkley is throwing you the ball, life is always going to be easier as a wide receiver–which was exactly the case for Robert Woods during his time at USC. The fact that Woods managed to start all 13 games as a true freshman a couple of years ago shows just how talented of a wide receiver he is and he could turn into a steal for a team in need of help in the passing game once the second round rolls around in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Woods has been praised for his speed and ability as a route runner, but his strength could become an issue at the NFL level. Still, Woods is one of those players that could easily work on bulking up and is certainly worth the risk when it comes to this year’s draft class.
Unfortunately for Woods, wide receivers from the past at USC have a history of struggling when they finally reach the NFL level–so let’s hope that doesn’t turn out to be the case for him now that he’s jumping to the pros. Woods has shown NFL potential ever since he was a true freshman and there are plenty of teams in need of help at the wide receiver position.
There may be other wide receivers that are selected before him, but that doesn’t mean Woods couldn’t turn out to be a steal once the second round rolls around–assuming he is still available by then.
