QUOTE OF THE DAY
ESPN NFL Analyst and former NFL GM Bill Polian on the Bills’ second-round draft choice WR Robert Woods:
“I think he has many of the same qualities as Reggie Wayne. He’s reliable. He runs really good routes. He gets in and out of his breaks. He knows how to set up defenders. He has really good hands. And he’s a tough guy-he’ll take a lick and bounce back up… I think he’s (Woods) is a solid pro. He’s a guy that’s going to be a contributor. Robert Woods is everything you want in a receiver… but he does everything well. I really thought he was a great pick, and a great ‘buy’ at that point, at 41.” via The John Murphy Show 5/6
