BIOGRAPHY: Big-10 Defensive Player of the Year as a senior after posting 36/16.5/12. Junior totals were 48/16/70 after a career-high 70 tackles as a sophomore. Broke into the starting lineup as a freshman.
POSITIVES: Hard-working defender who makes a lot of plays up the field. Explodes off the snap with a quick first step, can bend off the edge and is fast up the field. Plays with terrific leverage, displays an array of moves and easily beats immobile blockers.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the ideal measurables and may not have a true pro position. Only occasionally asked to make plays in reverse. Benefited from the terrific talent around him at Michigan.
ANALYSIS: A game-disrupting defender on the college level, Woodley positively impacted the Michigan defense since his arrival. Impressive on film, he could be ideally suited as a rush linebacker in the NFL. May need time to get adjusted but will be productive at the next level.
