Senior Film: Tanner Wood
2013 prospect Tanner Wood was a dominant player on both sides of the ball for Conway Springs. The record-breaking rusher will go down as one of the greatest players in the history of the Cardinal program, and the next Conway alum to play for Coach Bill Snyder at Kansas State. At 6-foot-5, 240-pounds, Wood brings good size to the defensive end position. Having played linebacker in high school, he moves well through traffic and finds the football well in the run game. Wood posted 106 tackles and 9 Tackles For Loss as a senior, leading the Conway Springs defense. He relies often on his sheer size and quickness to elude or defeat blockers, and rarely played against competition that threw the football with regularity. He possesses the tools to excel in the Wildcats defense, but will need to develop his skills as a pass rusher to reach his potential. Kansas State has told Wood he is likely to play the same position as Justin Tuggle, but his ability to run the football is impossible to ignore. With 2,709 yards and 45 total touchdowns in 2012, Wood shone brightly with the ball in his hands. Despite a 40-yard dash time in the 4.6 range, he consistently gained separation and ran away from defenses. With the physical similarity to Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, it would be hard not to give Wood an opportunity on offense before moving him to defensive end.
