Bio: 
First-year starter who made 35 tackles (five for loss) with two sacks and four pass breakups as a senior. Started two games and recorded 36 tackles (5.5 for loss), two sacks and two forced fumbles in 2016. Posted 34 tackles (four for loss) and two sacks as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Underrated pass rusher with poor size and speed. Competitive, works his hands throughout the action and fights hard to make plays. Moves well laterally, plays faster than his 40 time and shows ability in pursuit. Fast off the edge, breaks down well and plays with proper pad level. Displays good change of direction and effectively uses his hands.
Neg: 
Easily controlled at the point by a single blocker.
Analysis: 
Wood showed flashes of ability the past two seasons and offers decent size and growth potential. He’s displayed a lot of natural pass-rushing skill and could be a situational third-down player at the next level.
