Press Conference Post Fourth-Round Pick

Saturday, April 24, 2010


Opening Statement:


As you guys just saw, we selected Al Woods, defensive tackle from LSU. We made a trade with Arizona to do that; gave up our sixth-round pick to move up. We just felt like there was going to be too many opportunities between us and that pick for him to get selected. Were excited to have him. Were excited to have another LSU player on our team. We like the make-up of Al; we like what hes done at LSU and were looking forward to having him as part of our team.


Was there any connection to him being from LSU over any other school?


No. We always go out in full force to their Pro Day and obviously we have a great relationship with LSU and their football program and we value that, but at the same time were going to make a decision on who we draft based upon whats best for our team. Its coincidental that its an LSU player, but we like that.


What did you like about him from his visit here?


We like his make-up. Hell fit in well in our locker room. Hes a hard-working kid; he has size and he has been a good player for LSU and one of the leaders of their team. We like all that about him and obviously that makes the intangibles fit what were looking for in terms of a player.


Are you happy to be able to address the front seven of your defense with this pick?


Yes. Absolutely that was an area coming into the draft that we wanted to find some help in and weve been able to do that.

Al Woods is a beast when he wants to play. I think he has taken plays off in the past. Can he correct that in the NFL? I hope so.

Re: Loomis on 4th Round Pick Al Woods

We need an upgrade over Remi Ayodele at DT.

If Woods has the core strength to hold the point of attack, maybe he's the answer. It's a big if right now but I'll be pulling for him. Basically, I hope either Pressley, Woods, of one of the UDFA's are good enough to win the job. Or Ayodele improves in the offseason to the point of not being a liability in the middle.
