6-2/322 Boise State
Pros: Hard-working player that overcomes lack of size and athleticism with good technique and uses his hands well. Locks onto defender both as a pass protector and run blocker. Shows nice mobility and can block on the second level. Shows a nice mean streak. Has good footwork and is an effective drive blocker. Does a nice job in a short-area.
Cons: Doesn't have the feet to stay out on the edge. Is undersized to play tackle. Lacks pop off the snap. Will whiff on some blocks on the second level.
Overview: A three-year starter that played a different position each year. He started out as a right tackle as a sophomore before moving to right guard as a junior. He started at left tackle this past year. Was a second round pick in the CFL draft and likely will play there in the immediate future. A native of British Columbia.
NFL Forecast: NFL teams should keep their eye on Woodruff in the immediate future. He has potential to play in the NFL, especially in a zone blocking scheme. He's a polished blocker that doesn't wow you with his physical tools, but doe a nice job. He's not going to play outside at tackle in the pros, but could be make a very nice interior backup. I like his potential to play center more so than guard, because I think he could be an effective starter there. Not so much at guard, but could be a capable backup. Give him a few years of playing in Canada, and some NFL team should try and pick him up.
ATL Forecast: Woodruff could be a nice developmental center for the Falcons. He wouldn't be a great center, but an effective guy that probably wouldn't be a whole lot better than McClure, but offers more size potential and a bit more capable in the ground game. At the very least he could be a nice backup that can potentially play all three interior positions.
Value: Woodruff isn't worth drafting since he's going to be playing in Canada, but would be worth seeing if you can get him to play south of the border by offering him a contract as a free agent.
