The second of three brothers to star at Oklahoma State, D'Juan has etched his named in the school record books alongside sibling, Rashaun, and Hart Lee Dykes as the most prolific pass catchers in school history.

D'Juan earned All-State accolades as a wide receiver by the Tulsa World and All-State honors as a defensive back by the Daily Oklahoman during his senior year at Millwood High School. He was an Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State selection as well. He finished with 52 receptions for 988 yards (19.0 avg) and 21 touchdowns his senior year, helping lead Millwood to the Class 2A state title.

Woods was an early commitment to Oklahoma State in 2002, appearing in three games before being granted a medical redshirt year. He managed only two catches for 56 yards that season, but started 10 of 12 games at flanker in 2003. He finished second on the team with 31 receptions for 479 yards (15.5 avg) and a touchdown while playing alongside Rashaun, who led the Big 12 Conference with 77 catches for 1,367 yards and 15 scores that year.

With his older brother leaving for the NFL, D'Juan took over the role as the team's go-to receiver in 2004. He started 10 games, leading the Cowboys with 33 catches for 690 yards (20.9 avg) and six touchdowns. Woods shifted to the "X" (split end) receiver position in 2005. He started every game, earning All-Big 12 honors, as he led the team for the second consecutive year with 56 catches for 879 yards (15.7 avg) and eight scores.

He continued to line up at "X" receiver in 2006. 13 contests, he caught 41 passes for 647 yards and five touchdowns. Woods finished his Cowboys career with 161 receptions for 2,695 yards and 20 touchdowns.


Positives: Has a well-built frame with good upper body muscle tone, good arm development, thick thighs and calves … Long strider, but knows how to sink his weight to come out of his breaks cleanly … Has good balance throughout his stride and the change of direction agility to work back toward the ball … Lacks top-end speed to pull away, but has good foot quickness and body control for route running … Sets up the defenders well and has enough quickness to separate and get open … Has adequate initial speed out of his start and the ability to build acceleration when heading up field … Uses his strength decently to get a push off the jam, but is more of a pick-up speed type of runner who needs a clean release to get into his routes quicker … Shows good field vision and is alert to soft areas he needs to sit down in vs. the zone … Conscious of the sticks and does a decent job of adjusting on the move … Uses his size well to shield the ball from defenders and is effective on crossing patterns due to his ability to uncover … Works hard to adjust to the ball in flight and knows how to use his body to secure the ball when operating underneath … Has that ease of movement agility needed to reach and pluck the ball away from his frame … His production is the result of his good concentration and ability to adjust and extend for the ball at its high point … Will assert himself to get to the ball in a crowd and will generally hold on to the ball upon contact … Very effective at maintaining position and looking the ball in over his outside shoulder … Has quick hands and good ball reaction skills … Not an explosive runner, but has the leg drive to break tackles … Relies on vision and nifty moves to separate … Good cut blocker who takes proper angles to stalk second level defenders … Works hard to maintain hand placement and turn the defender away from the play … Will not hesitate to face up and lay a pad on a defensive back when asked to block along the perimeter.

Negatives: More quick than fast and is a bit of a long strider who needs room to build up to top speed … Does not enjoy the training room, but has improved his work habits in recent years … Does not take well to hard coaching … Has hip stiffness that prevents him from planting-and-driving to get out of his breaks cleanly (better when he shifts his weight) … Has the size to defeat the press, but needs to use moves and quickness with more consistency in order to escape … Lacks a fluid stride running routes and will take soft angles on long patterns (drifts in and out of the route when going deep) … Relies more on his leg drive to separate, as he lacks the second gear to pull away and head up field … Is too slow-footed to get behind coverages (not a burner), lacking the suddenness to stretch the field.

Compares To: RASHAUN WOODS-ex-San Diego-like his brother, D'Juan relies more on his ability to track the ball in flight and demonstrate a good feel for the reception point, as neither has the crisp route running agility or second gear to pull away from the pile. D'Juan is more physical than his brother working underneath and has softer hands, but will struggle to get behind the coverage on deep routes.
