In a draft short of potential superstars, a player who once torched a current NFL superstar is getting plenty of interest.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, USC receiver Robert Woods has visited the Vikings, Jets, Colts, and Eagles in advance of next week’s draft. He has taken other visits, but the teams he has seen aren’t currently known.
Teams in the NFC West should be targeting Woods. After all, he caught 12 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns in 2010 while being covered by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.
Regarded by many as a second-day prospect until his Pro Day may have pushed him into the bottom of round one, the performance from a freshman against a senior who quickly has become one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL should cause teams to take an extra-long look at Woods.
