BIO: Three-year starter who won All-Conference honors as a senior after posting 96/11/5. Originally set a UAB single season record with 120 tackles as a sophomore, only to break it the following year posting 149 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard working, run defending linebacker consistently around the ball. Breaks down well, holds his ground against blocks and fights to get involved in the action. Instinctive, reads the action and remains alert throughout the play. Hard hitting and lays his shoulders into opponents, wrapping up ballcarriers at the point of attack.
NEGATIVES: Straight line defender who lacks a quick change of direction and speed to the flanks. Stiff backpedaling in reverse and marginal skills in coverage.
ANALYSIS: A high-motor defender, Woodfin possesses marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. Known for his work ethic and high character, he has a special teams mentality which will be his meal ticket in the NFL.
