Default Potential Wide Receiver in Round #2

http://www.steelersdepot.com/2013/02...s-nfl-combine/

Robert Woods, WR, USC: I watched this guy last year, this kid is fast. Now, he isn't as fast as Wallace, but again not too many are. But this kid runs great routes, the deep route as well as the slant. And he has great hands, not afraid to take a hit, and has great yards after the catch. If he is there in the 2nd, the Steelers better take him. He will not make it out of the 2nd round.

Southern Cal wide receiver Robert Woods is a speedy, explosive athlete that can separate from defenders and make big plays downfield.
Woods' best attribute is his playmaking ability. He has very good speed and can get behind defenders. Despite his average height, he is very quick in tight spaces and can turn a short pass into a long gain with his sudden change of direction skills. When route running, he blows past corners off the line and is average with getting in and out of his breaks. Quick feet and has that "next gear" when given a straight line. Still has room to improve as a route runner.

Catches the ball well away from his body in most cases, but does battle with drops from time to time. Due to his lack of size, Woods usually relies on trying to get to the ball using quickness rather than strength. He can track a deep pass and flashes elite jumping ability.

Not very good in run support and shows a better willingness to block. Shows more attitude with the ball in his hands, so there is tenacity in him to learn how to take on defenders in sealing the edge.

Woods is a first round prospect and could compete with others to be the first receiver off the board in the 2013 NFL Draft.
