Overview

As a redshirt freshman, it look Liberty coaches exactly two games to stick Woodrum into the fire. In the third game of the 2012 season, he took over the starting job and didn't let go (save two games in 2014 he missed with an injury). Now he’s the Flames' career record holder in passing yards (10,266), completions (833), and attempts (1,304). The three-time second team All-Big South selection and team captain is an efficient passer, throwing for 61 touchdown versus 30 interceptions in his career. The Flames were only 6-5 under head coach Turner Gill in 2015, but Woodrum's play help them beat two top 10 teams at home in Montana and Coastal Carolina, the latter victory closing out the quarterback’s collegiate career.

Analysis

Strengths

Has necessary NFL size. Steps and drives his throws. Can put the ball on top of receivers with some pace. Accurate with blitz reads and gets ball to hot reads quickly. Can sense when corners are looking to jump routes and will pump fake his way into a cleaner throw. Has enough arm to operate in a more aggressive, vertical offense.

Weaknesses

Stiff and limited outside of the pocket. Has wind­up with a short­-armed release. Aims his throws. Drive accuracy is marginal. Over­-the-­top release with downward trajectory creates low, challenging catches. Lacks consistent accuracy and touch. Panics and rushes throws when he sees blitz coming. Lacks improvisational thinking. Slow to see throws come open over the middle and will run receivers into traffic.

Draft Projection

Undrafted free agent

Bottom Line

Woodrum has enough size and arm to get a scout's attention, but his average accuracy and lack of touchdown production relative to his passing attempts is disappointing. Woodrum might be worth grooming, but he is a pocket passer who is missing the field vision usually associated with those types of "stash" prospects.
