Explanation of Player Grading System


Strengths

Good height and weight for position. Adequate range and speed. Does a nice job in run support. Plays best when closer to the line and is a sure tackler. Average awareness. Has soft hands and adequate ball skills. Physical and will fight for the ball and/or position. Nice vision once he gets the ball in his hands. Excellent special teams player.

Weaknesses

Not great in coverage. Slow to react to the wide receiver. Stiff hips and has a tough time running with quick receivers. Range is limited. Found himself chasing wide receivers more often than staying tight in coverage. Might have been weakest link in Alabama’s secondary.

Analysis

Woodall turned down an offer to play for the New York Mets baseball team after being drafted in the 19th round of the 2006 draft. Will make a nice addition to an NFL team as a special teams player and backup safety.

Experience

Two year starter at safety and saw action in most games as a special team player during freshman season. Only appeared in 5 games on special teams and backup defensive back as a sophomore.
