BIOGRAPHY: Part-time starter the past two seasons after playing 12 games with the first team as a sophomore. Totals last season included 27 tackles. Sophomore-year numbers included 74/2/7. Has not intercepted a pass since his sophomore campaign.
POSITIVES: Once a highly rated prospect, he has watched his draft stock slip. Quickly transitions with opponents off the line, effectively diagnoses the action, and fast closing on the ball. Supports in run defense and helps out on special teams.
NEGATIVES: Average playing speed. Usually a step behind receivers and does a lot of chasing or face-guarding. Late reacting and gives up a lot of receptions.
ANALYSIS: A nice-sized defensive back, Wooden offers potential as a dime back in a zone system.
