BSMW SUMMARY (as of 3/25/07)
The Pats have been linked to Woodley at the Senior Bowl, Michigan pro day and a subsequent private workout. Fair to say there might be interest? The profiles say Woodley is at his best when he’s turned loose up the field, where he is a disruptive pass rusher with power and a quick first step. A strong, solidly built guy and a big hitter who has continued to improve as a run defender. Competitive, persistent, always seems to be in on the big play. Played two seasons as a rushing OLB, before moving to end as a senior, where he earned the nation’s top lineman and top defensive end awards. The profiles think Woodley’s not tall or massive enough to stay at end, and will have to move back outside. Even then, they question whether he has the top end speed and fluidity to be an every-down linebacker. The very definition of a tweener. A consistently productive career on a pretty big stage ought to count for something. Is he first-round material for the Pats? Our multi-round mocks are split – one has him as low as 25th, another as high as 59th. So the first round could be a stretch, but Woodley could be in the mix if the Pats somehow trade back with one or both of their first round picks.
