2013 NFL Draft results: Buffalo Bills pick Robert Woods

Stephen Dunn

The USC star has a legitimate chance to start alongside Stevie Johnson in Buffalo as a rookie.

With the No. 41 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected USC wide receiver Robert Woods.

Woods, a junior entrant, is coming off of a decorated career with the Trojans in which, catching passes from Matt Barkley, he caught 251 passes for 2,924 yards and 32 touchdowns in his three-year career. The 6'0", 201-pound wideout does not have the greatest timed speed, but plays much faster in pads, and is a crisp route-runner with good quicks, which should allow him to produce at the NFL level for a long time.

Paired with Stevie Johnson, the Bills now have two excellent targets for a West Coast offense at receiver - players that can get open on short and intermediate throws and make plays after the catch. Though the Bills also have 2012 third-round pick T.J. Graham on the roster, Woods is the type of player that could walk into a starting job immediately and relegate a bigger project like Graham to special packages.

Either way, the Bills took their franchise quarterback in Round 1, and now they've begun building out a group of skill players around him.
