The Bills drafted center Eric Wood out of Louisville with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. The 26-year old interior offensive lineman is entering the final season of the five-year deal he signed following the draft.
Standing 6'4" and weighing 310 pounds, Wood has developed into one of the top centers in the National Football League. He played right guard with the Bills in 2009 and 2010, before making the transition to the pivot in 2011.
Wood has suffered three major leg injuries that ended his 2009 and 2011 campaigns, and injury concerns may drive down his value a bit. He's missed 17 games in four seasons due to these injuries, but when Wood has been on the field, he's been effective.
According to ProFootballFocus, Wood was the seventh-rated pass blocking center in the entire National Football League in 2012. He allowed just three sacks and 10 pressures this season, and has given up just eight sacks in his career.
The Bills locked up guard Kraig Urbik before the end of the season for four years, and the team's expected to re-sign unrestricted free agent Andy Levitre this offseason. Keeping the three together makes sense, as they've been one of the more cohesive units in the NFL.
