Jerry Rice & Reggie Wayne: NFL models for Robert Woods

Posted by johnmurphyshow on April 30, 2013 – 8:30 pm

It’s been four days since the Bills chose USC wide receiver Robert Woods in the NFL draft. And Buffalo’s second round pick is gearing up for the team’s rookie minicamp next week.

Tuesday night, Woods appeared as a guest on The John Murphy Show. And the talented wideout was asked which NFL receivers, past or present, he has modeled his game after.

“I try to pattern my game off of Jerry Rice, Reggie Wayne, a little bit of everybody,” Woods replied. “I try to put parts of their game into mine. That makes me a complete receiver. I take something that a big receiver does, and match it with my size. It makes me more complete because I can do it all.”

Woods has had phone conversations with the Bills coaching staff since he was selected last Friday night. But he’s looking forward to being at One Bills Drive next week to meet the staff face to face, and get together with his teammates. Woods says he’s been on the internet the last few days finding out as much as he can about his new team.

“I’ve done a little research,” he said. “Checked out my competition at the receiver position, guys that have been there and guys we’ve brought in. That’s rule number one for me—check out my competition and be ready to compete once I get there. I also looked into the Bills history also, last year they went 6-10. They had some tough losses, some close games.”
