Louisiana Tech safety Xavier Woods is getting ready to participate at the NFL Scouting Combine after coming off yet another productive, successful season for the Bulldogs. Woods spoke a little bit about his career, how he’s gotten here and what he expects to come out of this week.

Pete Smith: This season, you were listed at 219 pounds, but measured in at the Shrine Game at 203. What did you actually play at this season?

Xavier Woods: I was never 219. The season I played mostly at 198. At the end, I was around 202-203.

PS: How would you characterize your role in the Bulldogs defense? You were obviously a safety and probably a strong safety but you did a lot more than that.

XW: Well, I wasn’t strong. I was more of a free but just rotated strong. That’s kinda how our defense was. I was the nickel (read more…)

Virginia Tech WR Isaiah Ford and the Art of Body Control

Written by Nicholas McGee on February 15, 2017

isaiah ford

Complete receivers are very difficult to find and, in this year’s draft class, there is perhaps only one player who could be described as such in the form of Western Michigan’s Corey Davis.

Davis is the most well-rounded wideout in the draft, though many consider Mike Williams of Clemson to be the top pass-catcher available.

Like most of the receivers in the class, Williams excels in one area in particular rather than in every facet of his game. His size allows him to physically dominate defenders and make contested catches on a consistent basis.

Virginia Tech’s Isaiah Ford shares this knack for winning the fight for contested balls but, rather than relying on physicality and catch radius, Ford is a reliable target because of his body control, which also enables him to haul in inaccurate passes, often in spectacular fashion.

Unlike Williams, Ford is not receiving first-round hype but, though (read more…)

Exclusive Interview with Arizona SS/LB Paul Magloire:

Written by Chris Nicolaou on February 14, 2017


Let’s start with your earlier years; you’re a JUCO guy who played at Arizona Western in Yuma. Talk about that journey and what led to your decision to attend there.

Magloire: I switched positions to strong safety and coaching changes. I worked hard at it and learned a lot. At spring ball, scouts saw me. I got interest from Arizona and then got tons after that.

You led the Matadors to a 11-1 record as a second team all American who had 101 tackles, did you ever think you’d get recruited?

Magloire: That was the goal. Make it to a big time school. I had faith in myself and I worked really hard.

When you got recruited by Arizona, what position did they recruit you to play for the Wildcats?

Magloire: At first, strong safety. I played strong safety until week six of this season. Injuries happened to linebackers and (read more…)
