No. 3: Zedrick Woods, Junior-DB
The defensive backfield struggled last year with coverage. Whether it was due to play-calling or simple execution of the game plan is left for message board warriors to decide. The one thing that is not debatable is the fact that Zedrick Woods appears to be on the verge of a breakout season.
The junior from Lake City, FL. was a statistical bright spot for the Rebels last year. He lead the team in interceptions with three. In addition to that, he was second on the team with 63 tackles. Woods was able to stay healthy last season and started all 12 games.
Woods should use this Spring as a chance to solidify his hold on his starting position. He has been a pleasant surprise from the 2015 recruiting class. He has shown an innate ability to go after the ball. If he improves his coverage skills Woods could anchor the defensive backfield for the next two years.
