According to CBS’ NFL Draft Scout, USC WR Robert Woods is projected as either a 1st or 2nd round pick in the upcoming draft. As I’ve argued in the past, I think that valuable draft picks should be used to acquire players that have attributes that are in short supply. Woods’ attributes as a player are probably not in short supply. He’s about average size and speed. His production numbers including both his raw and market share adjusted numbers are decent, but not great. Basically, there are probably a number of guys like Woods available either in the league already as 3rd and 4th WRs on depth charts, or available in the draft. Having said that, I ran Woods’ comparables to see exactly which receivers he was similar to. My comps search produced 15 names, which I have narrowed down to 4 by removing guys whose draft position was significantly different from where Woods is expected to go.
