WOOD QUOTE: "That's just all hard work. That all really has paid off. I think that doing well at the combines got me on the radar with the whole recruiting process, but as a player the hard work in the weightroom has paid off for me. I go to the gym five days a week, and it's all about intensity.
"I really try to work on my range, my footwork, and my speed."
