Kolb has high praise for Robert Woods

Posted by Chris Brown on July 29, 2013 – 9:22 pm

He’s liked throwing to Robert Woods since the OTA practices. He’s praised him for his route running patience and savvy. Just two days into training camp, Kevin Kolb has an even more impressive description of Robert Woods as a receiver.

“Stud. I mean, legitimately a stud,” said Kolb. “I’ve bragged on him a lot in the last two days and really through camp. I mean, what I see from him, I’ve been with some really good rookie receivers. I mean some really good ones.

“DeSean (Jackson) came on the scene really fast in Philly and a number of other guys and I’m really impressed with the way that (Woods) approaches it. The kid can run better than I think everybody gives him credit for and his approach to the game for a rookie and a high draft pick, he’s really got an open mind and wants to learn and a ‘my bad’ type of guy, which is the kind you want out there playing for you.”

Woods has made a handful of plays in the first two practices and his knowledge of the game at his position looks to be well beyond his status of an NFL rookie. To have Kolb mentioning Woods in the same breath as DeSean Jackson is saying an awful lot about what he believes Woods is capable of as a rookie.

Just for reference Jackson in his rookie season had 60 catches for 912 yards and a pair of receiving touchdowns.
