USC WR Robert Woods to enter NFL draft
USC junior receiver Robert Woods will forgo his senior season and declare for the 2013 NFL Draft, according to Gary Klein of the L.A. Times.
In today's loss to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl, Woods had three receptions for 33 yards. The team's offense struggled overall and Max Wittek completed only 14-of-37 passes for 107 yards.
After finishing with 111 receptions for 1,292 yards and 15 touchdowns last year, Woods ends this season with 76 receptions for 846 yards and 11 touchdowns. He had only one 100-yard game in 2012 after having seven of them in 2011.
Before the season began, Woods was projected by many as the top draft-eligible receiver, but there's a good chance that he won't be selected in the first round. In my latest mock draft, I left Woods out of the first round.
If Woods is not selected in the first round, however, there is a good chance that he will be off the board in the top half of the second round.
Considering Woods is not even the most talented receiver at USC, it's unlikely that he would have boosted his stock much had he returned for another season. Lee had nearly twice as many receiving yards (1,680) as Woods (846) and could be a top-five pick in 2014.
