Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Bills' picks: Round 2/41 -- Robert Woods, WR, 6-0, 190, USC...On the heels of taking their quarterback, the Bills added one of the elite receivers in college football in Woods, who finished as USC's career receptions leader with 252. After a monster junior year (111 receptions, 1,292 yards, 15 touchdowns), his production dropped as a senior but that was more a product of team injuries and quarterback Matt Barkley's struggles. Runs a 4.43 forty and should be able to step right in and contribute in Buffalo's spread offense that will utilize three and four wides. - The Sports Xchange

04/28/13 - Wide receiver Robert Woods, who caught passes in college at USC from Matt Barkley (fourth round, Philadelphia) will now get the chance to catch passes in the NFL from Florida State's EJ Manuel, the Bills' first-round pick. "It really excites me," Woods said. "I've seen him play, I know what he can do. From watching, I already trust his arm, now we've got to actually do it on the field. I'm can't wait to catch that first pass on the NFL level. I'm just looking forward to being out there and making plays for the Bills." - The Sports Xchange
04/25/13 - DANE BRUGLER'S FINAL 2013 DRAFT BOARD: 49. WR Robert Woods, USC (6-0, 210, 3JR)...Although he's not the biggest or fastest, Woods is a sharp route runner with very good quickness in his breaks to create separation and do something with the ball. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/25/13 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 25. *Robert Woods, WR, USC: While all eyes were on his quarterback, Woods stole the show at USC's Pro Day (March 27) turning in much faster times in the shuttle drills, proving the quick change-of-direction so evident on his tape. He can line up inside and out, and can run good routes in a pro-style offense, so Woods is viewed by some as the safest pick of the 2013 receiver class. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/25/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: SIX GUYS WHO MAY SNEAK INTO THE FIRST ROUND: 3. Robert Woods, WR USC: Woods has been lurking behind Cordarrelle Paterson, Tavon Austin, Keenan Allen and Justin Hunter for most of the spring, but his name keeps popping up when I'm discussing the wide receivers in the draft. One coach said, "I was impressed with Woods' route running, knowledge of the game, work ethic and toughness; he's a safe pick even in the first round." Will he beat some of the aforementioned wideouts to the podium Thursday night? Possibly. - Pat Kirwan, CBSSports.com
04/08/13 - 2013 USC Pro Day: Matt Barkley was draw, but Robert Woods is star of USC Pro Day...Robert Woods, WR (6-0 1/2, 200) - Woods ran the short shuttle in 4.36 seconds, the three-cone drill in 6.83 seconds, and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Woods had a great pro day workout. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/29/13 - 2013 USC Pro Day: That wasn't the case for his primary target, Woods, who shaved nearly a tenth-of-a-second off the 4.47-second 20-yard shuttle drill he'd run at the combine with a time of 4.38 seconds. He was even better in the three-cone drill, where he was timed as fast as 6.84 seconds after being clocked at a disappointing 7.15 seconds in the drill in Indianapolis.
As impressive as Woods was in timed drills, he was even better during the positional drills, exploding out of his breaks and catching nearly every pass thrown to him, including a dazzling one-handed catch deep down the right sideline. Woods' one drop came on a deep post on Barkley's final throw against the wind in which the receiver simply lost his concentration. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Medical watch: Another junior Pac-12 wideout with top-40 potential is USC's Robert Woods, but like Allen, he has some lingering injury concerns that will help decide his draft stock. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle in December 2011 and was bothered by the injury much of the spring and summer. Woods looked mostly healthy throughout the 2012 season, but his long-term stability will still be under scrutiny if there is any issue with his ankles. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/31/12 - Scouting the USC passing game: There would be some debate from fans of Clemson and West Virginia, but USC probably has the most talented pair of receivers in the country in Marqise Lee and Robert Woods. Senior QB Matt Barkley threw too many interceptions this season (15), an unexpected regression to his mistake-prone early years. In other areas, he showed progress, such as maneuvering out of the pocket and throwing the deep ball with more zip. He won't want to take a big hit on his sprained right shoulder and will need to keep an eye on Georgia Tech OLB Jeremiah Attaochu, who has 10 sacks. - The Sports Xchange
12/31/12 - Though the two USC receivers are often compared, they are actually quite different prospects. Lee is unquestionably the more dynamic athlete but is hardly the polished all-around football player that Woods has proven himself to be over his three seasons at USC. Because of Woods reliable route-running, soft hands and toughness, he served not only as Matt Barkley's most trusted option on "money" downs but as the Trojans' primary punt returner, as well. Woods, who caught just three passes for 33 yards in his final game as a Trojan, leaves USC with 252 career catches for 2,930 yards and 32 touchdowns. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
