Woodson, even at his age is still good at covering, blitzing and tackling. Some people must be focusing on his age as opposed to film. He should start for the niners and will probably perform better than most if not all rookies in the draft for at least 1 year. Nuff said
wow you make a good point and we usually struggle against teams with good TE's.
We struggle against almost every te we go against.....almost every year since we had Peterson. This is a fact. Woodson is very very good at covering tes and would be an upgrade over whitner if he has the coverage assignments on tes and might be almost as good or better in the slot than Rogers. So PLEASE PLEASE think of Woodson as an UPGRADE over all of our safeties, because he IS.....Dahl was the guy that our whole offense picked on whenever we played the rams, go look at the film. Vd handled him and he was almost always out of position on defense and missed tackles consistently.
Please trust me on this one, Woodson is still a good player in the slot and covering tes and tackling and blitzing. To me, that is a good player that would help a,most any team besides the very few that have 2 great safeties.
