Pos: 
Three-year starter who posted a career-best 79 tackles last season while also adding two interceptions. Slightly underrated safety prospect with nice size and athleticism. Explosive, sells out and sacrifices his body to make the play but also plays within the system. Locates the pass in the air, quickly picks up coverage assignments and has an excellent burst of closing speed. Gives effort to defend screen passes and run plays, quickly arrives on the scene and wraps up tackling. Displays range and the ability to get out to the flanks and make plays.
Neg: 
Lacks the height desired in a safety. Shows hesitation in coverage. Average production against the pass.
Analysis: 
Woods is an athletic safety who shows ability in a straight line as well as terrific sideline-to-sideline range. He offers possibilities in a variety of systems and needs only to improve his ball skills slightly to make it at the next level.
