Woodhead reminds me of Welker as he is cut from the same cloth, small, but not too small 5'7 200 pounds is pretty similar to Faulk 5'9" 210....
He displayed speed and agility, running times between 4.33 and 4.38 in the 40-yard dash, which would place second overall for all college running backs.
He also posted the best agility time (4.03 seconds), the second-best vertical jump (38.5 in), and the best 60-yard shuttle time (11.2) seconds.
Despite only being 5'7" and weighing in at 200 lbs., Woodhead had the best athletic times, overall, of all the running back prospects in the nation.
Bottom line he is like Welker and Faulk because everyone said he could not do it........ Well now he has an opportunity to SHINE becasue Sammy Morris cannot play Faulks position... We saw him in that role in the second half and he was subpar.... Woodhead can run a delayed draw in his sleep.
Watch the film!
All i am saying is the Patriots picked this kid up just in the knick of time and hopefully he will be trained up and know the position enough to stick it to the JETS the next time we see them!!!!!!!!!!
I think our BOY FAULK has played his last down in this league and he has been by far my favorite player in the last 10 year.....
Let wish him a speedy recovery Welker style.
Woodhead set several NCAA college football rushing records, including single season rushing and all-time rushing. In 2006 and 2007, he won the Harlon Hill Trophy, awarded to the best player in NCAA Division II, making him the third player to win the trophy twice in its history (the other players are Johnny Bailey and Dusty Bonner). On October 6, 2007, Woodhead became the NCAA all-time, all-division leading rusher. Woodhead held this record until it was broken by Mount Union College running back Nate Kmic on December 13, 2008.
