Xavier Woods, S, Louisiana Tech
When Reshad Jones went down with an injury last season Miami’s defense lost a big part of both their run support and in coverage. Bacarri Rambo was nothing more than just a fill in. Then when Isa Abdul-Quddus went down, Michael Thomas was the replacement.
While I’m a huge fan of Thomas he’s best utilized on special teams and in certain packages. Walt Aikens still doesn’t have the trust of the coaching staff.
Woods was a playmaker at Louisiana Tech. His senior season he had 84 tackles and five interceptions. He ended his career with 272 tackles and 14 interceptions.
