High marks for Wood at C

Posted by Chris Brown on December 16, 2010 – 11:33 am

The Bills coaching staff was pleased with Eric Wood’s performance at center last week against the Browns in his first NFL start in the pivot. Apparently the stat crunchers at ProFootballFocus approved as well.

Wood got high marks from the PFF game review staff. Here’s what they wrote about him.

Eric Wood (+3.1) returned to center, his college position at Louisville, and looked impressive there shifting inside from guard. In his prior 20 starts at right guard, he had only bettered his grade from Sunday as center once, a grade of +3.8 against the Bears in Week 9 this season in Toronto. Wood’s performance against Ahtyba Rubin was very impressive, controlling and moving Rubin both laterally and vertically within the box to create space for Fred Jackson and the Bills’ interior running game.
