ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have selected Southern California junior receiver Robert Woods with the 41st pick in the NFL draft.
Woods joins first-round selection Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel in what's becoming a revamped offense under rookie head coach Doug Marrone. Listed at 6-feet and 190 pounds, Woods was a three-year starter who had a school record 252 career catches.
He also finished with 2,930 yards receiving and 32 touchdowns.
Receiver was regarded as a prime need for Buffalo after the team failed to re-sign David Nelson and Donald Jones. That left no established receiver to play opposite Stevie Johnson.
Before the selection was announced by retired defensive end Chris Kelsay, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell paid tribute to former Buffalo News football writer Larry Felser, who died on Wednesday.
