Robert Woods was Watkins running mate last season, starting all but one game during the 2014 campaign. While not as explosive as his teammate, the 23-year old still provided a nice compliment as a possession-type receiver.
This year, more of the same will be expected from Woods. With his place on the roster guaranteed, his biggest concern will be whether or not he can retain his position as a starter.
In that respect, the 2013 second round draft pick has been playing with the first team offense during training camp. As such, a starting spot appears to be his to lose.
2014 receiving statistics: 65 catches, 699 receiving yards, five touchdown receptions
Statistics versus Panthers: Two catches for 11 yards
Will he make the cut? 100 percent guaranteed
