Woods is an explosive, twitchy playmaker with route running savvy and the speed to win at all three levels.
Woods is a playmaker with the ball in his hands who displays explosiveness and twitch. He lacks burner-level speed but can still take the ball to the house on almost any play. Woods strings together multiple jukes, spins, and cuts in the open field to create a continuously growing highlight reel. His experience as an outside receiver shows in how he handles press coverage and some of the deeper routes he’s comfortable running. Woods is a seasoned college football veteran, and it shows in his releases, route running, and vision. He’s able to win at all levels of the field thanks to his acceleration, route running, and speed. Woods is quick off the line thanks to his footwork. He sells defensive backs on his routes with a combination of fakes and varied tempo. The Alabama native suffers from concentration drops and sometimes lets the ball bounce off of his body instead of corralling it with his hands. Woods is an older prospect with significant size.

They’re going to find ways to get him the ball and we’ve got to figure out a way to not let that happen.” — Texas Tech defensive coordinator Tim Rocker on Wr Jonathan Woods.
