USC receiver Robert Woods became the first Trojans player selected in the 2013 NFL draft when the Buffalo Bills chose him in the second round with the 41st overall pick.

Woods, who grew up in Carson and played at Gardena Serra High, was an All-American and Biletnikoff Award finalist in 2011, when he caught a school-record 111 passes.

Last season, Coach Lane Kiffin shifted the focus to receiver Marqise Lee -- the 2012 Biletnikoff Award winner -- and Woods caught 76 passes, 11 for touchdowns.

Woods had a year of eligibility remaining but announced after the Sun Bowl that he would enter the draft.

Woods was the fifth wide receiver selected.

West Virginia's Tavon Austin, Clemson's DeAndre Hopkins and Tennessee's Cordarelle Patterson were chosen in the first round.

Tennessee's Justin Hunter was selected in the second round.
