Ambrose Wooden CB 511 196 Notre Dame

By: Robert Davis

After spending his first season on the sidelines as a wide receiver, Wooden moved over to corner and played on special teams in 2004. As a sophomore in 2005, he had 74 tackles and two interceptions and looked like he was about to breakout as a junior. He took a step back however, and only had 21 tackles last year. He had another mediocre season as a senior, finishing with just 27 tackles.

Wooden is a physical and tough corner prospect. He will not back down from any receiver, and is willing to help out in run support. He is quick and shows the ability to locate the ball in the air and prevent his man from making the play. He has experience starting on the outside, and lining up as a nickel back so he is a corner you could put in any position.

Speed may be the biggest problem with Wooden and how he projects to the next level. He lacks the footspeed to keep up with receivers down the field. He has given up some big plays because of is inability to maintain his coverage down the field. Inconsistency has also plagued him, as his play took a big step back as a junior and senior.

Wooden may lack the pure speed to be a sure fire NFL player, but he has the toughness, intelligence, and versatility to play a role in the NFL. Another down year has cast a shadow over his NFL future, but he will be given a shot.
