Player Overview

Overshadowed by quarterback Sean Mannion and a barrage of Oregon State wideouts throughout his career, Woods has quietly emerged as one of the Pac-12's best all-around backs. He enters his senior campaign with 2,183 career rushing yards, as well as 111 receptions for another 932 yards through the air.

While Woods' production speaks for itself, he'll have to win over the new coaching staff, as talented junior Chris Brown also saw a number of carries with the first team offense this spring.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Woods possesses a rangy, athletic build with solid overall musculature. He's a decisive runner who possesses good burst to dart through gaps and just enough speed to turn the corner. He shows good vision for the cutback and accelerates quickly enough to slip into the secondary when the defense over-commits.

Woods has some jitter-bug to him, shaking defenders in tight spaces with subtle shoulder fakes. While not a powerful runner, Woods isn't afraid to hunch his shoulders through contact, showing solid leg drive, determination and awareness to get the tough yards.

Woods' willingness to get physical also flashes in pass protection, as he often drops a shoulder into the belly of pass-rushers before releasing on short routes. When facing up a blitzer, Woods often resorts to cut blocks, showing good timing and aim to successfully take out the legs of opponents.

Woods possesses soft hands and the flexibility to adjust to poorly thrown passes, making him a very effective weapon on screens and other quick routes for Oregon State.

WEAKNESSES: Not a powerful runner. Doesn't always wrap both arms around the ball through traffic and doesn't consistently transfer the ball to his outside arm.

09/16/2013 - There was a scary moment in the Oregon State-Utah game when Beavers running back Storm Woods was injured with 8:12 left in the fourth quarter. He appeared to suffer a neck injury and did not move for several minutes. He gestured with a hand as he left the field in an ambulance, but was released from the hospital and flew home with the team. Woods led the Beavers with 34 yards on 12 carries against Utah. He has 152 yards and two touchdowns on 45 carries this season to lead the team. - The Sports Xchange
