More of an underdog type player, you know, one of the small guys you wouldn’t expect to even make it to the NFL, took the opportunity he got in New England and shined.
Only having 64 rushing yards for the New York Jets in 3 seasons he was with them, things started to pick up as soon as he became a member of the Patriots.
Rushing for 1,199 yards and 10 touchdowns along with, 982 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, Woodhead was an excellent pick up for the New England Patriots. Being a part of an offense that had the ball spread all over the field, things may not be as good in San Diego, as we know, that offense has its problems, but Woodhead should become a reliable piece of that offense and possibly special teams.
His role in San Diego may be unknown for now, considering the draft isn’t here yet and nobody is sure what San Diego is looking to do with their picks. But he is a good complimentary back behind Ryan Mathews, who can contribute when his number is called.
Unless Mathews can avoid injuries, Woodhead could possibly be a #1 back in San Diego.
