A scrappy, tough wideout unafraid to go over the middle, Woods is the type of receiver quarterbacks love. Incredibly productive, he’s reliable to pile up big numbers every Sunday. Woods shows a good burst going in and out of his cuts which makes him a solid route runner as well as dangerous after the catch. Furthermore, scouts note that he has a strong work ethic and puts in the time to get better during each and every practice.

A.J. Smith's final draft class - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
It's too early to grade A.J. Smith's final draft class with ink. Using cyber ink here, I'd give it a C, but see potential in several players. All seven of those draftees remained with the team in some capacity last season.
