He ran for 7,871 yards and 101 touchdowns while at D-2 college Chadron State in Nebraska. He was nominated for the Harlon Hill trophy (Division 2 MVP trophy like heisman) each of his 4 years of college.
He has played in 10 games this season. He has ran for 355 yards on 66 carries for 3 touchdowns and avg of 5.4 ypc. He also 28 receptions for 334 yards and 1 touchdown.
I personally think his value to the Patriots is underrated because when the Pats need a big play you can almost always count on woodhead. What makes him special is that he is only
5-8. He has become the new Kevin Faulk and he will continue to be good for a long time.

Underrated: to rate too low, undervalue
The fact that he made the NFL out of Division II Chadron State is a testament to his hard work and dedication. Regardless where you play, Division I, Division II, NAIA, you will get a chance if you are indeed good enough.
"He has played in 10 games this season. He has ran for 355 yards on 66 carries for 3 touchdowns and avg of 5.4 ypc. He also 28 receptions for 334 yards and 1 touchdown."
35.5ypg is nothing special.
The 5.4ypc is nice but with increased carries that would likely drop. He is a change of pace back for the Pats....
He is not underrated. He is a nice surprise this season but lets not say he is underrated because he is not.
The Pats have had a smorgasboard of injuries. He has taken advantage of the playing time he has been given due to injuries and the trade of Laurence Maroney.

15 first downs.
Ellis-Green has 45.
