Jelani Woods Bio

Jelani Woods started as a 6-5 215lb quarterback from Cedar Grove high school in Ellenwood, GA. His 3-star ranking led to his commitment to Oklahoma State. In 2017, he redshirted while converting to wide receiver. As a receiver, he put up very little production from 2018-2020 at Oklahoma State. Jelani Woods accumulated 31 receptions for 361 yards and 4 touchdowns before he transferred to Virginia for the 2021 season.

His first year in the Cavalier offense was fruitful, but this time he was playing tight end rather than receiver. He became a regular target for quarterback Brennan Armstrong catching 44 passes for 598 yards and 8 touchdowns. Jelani Woods had 3 receptions in 8 of the 11 games he played in as a senior. Invited to the Combine, he measured at 6-6 259lbs and ran a 4.61 40-yard dash. At his size that time equated to a 95th percentile Speed Score. Due to his size, versatility, and athleticism, he’s projected to go in the 4th round. He’s worth a pick up in rookie drafts.

Jelani Woods was selected in the 3rd round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Woods will have a practically open depth chart. I suspect that Woods will go early in the 2nd round of rookie drafts. His athleticism along with draft capital warrants a pickup.
