Lorenzo Woodley
Dan Malone continues his "Top 25" UMass players with Lorenzo Woodley.

Woodley's UMass bio.

Woodley battled leg troubles in 2014. He ended up 8 GP 84-314 3.7 AVE 25 LONG 2 TD's 39.3 YGS/G. Note that in 2012, Minutemen backs averaged a dismal 2.6 yards a carry. So even nicked up, Woodley did pretty good. The running back position, is one part of the UMass team that has depth and talent. In football, you're always one play away from starting against Penn State. Last year the Minutemen went six deep on the RB roster. I think Whipple's offense will provide more yards for everybody.

Dan also looks the UMass offense going into Fall camp. I pretty much concur with his conclusions, but I would not be surprised to see Marken Michel or Shakur Nesmith start at one of the WR positions.

Matty Vautour says there are plenty of questions going into training camp.

Michael Cox gets a lot of quotes in this article from the Giants camp.

The NY Daily news says David Wilson's injury opens the door for Michale Cox.

Great news for Theo, He was another key player that had been run out of town by Molnar...I hear Byrne has begun recouping from a serious illness that kept him away from the UMass Pro Day and teammates are encouraging him to get back into the battle for the next level. Maybe Theo's success will be that added motivation.
