The Kansas City Chiefs continue to host a number of draft-eligible prospects on top-30 visits. The latest visit is with a talented defensive back, who crushed his workout at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine.
According to Pro Football Focus reporter Doug Kyed, the Chiefs are hosting Baylor S JT Woods on a top-30 visit on Tuesday, April 19. Woods was the FBS co-leader in interceptions during the 2021 college football season, tying Penn State’s Ji’Ayir Brown and Oregon’s Verone McKinley III with six interceptions on the year.
He’s managed to be around the football a lot throughout his time with Baylor, with nine total interceptions and four fumble recoveries spanning his four-year career. He even earned a cool nickname for his penchant for making game-changing plays, being dubbed “The Heartbreaker.”
Baylor S JT Woods has a visit with the Chiefs today, per source. Previously visited the Dolphins and Raiders and worked out with the Saints.
6-2, 195, 4.36s 40, 1.5s 10, 39.5" vert, 10-8 broad jump, 4.19s shuttle, 6.94s 3-cone and 14 bench press reps.

Woods was a former track athlete in high school, running the 100-meter dash and also hurdling. It was no surprise that he posted one of the best 40-yard dash times (4.36 seconds), vertical jumps (39.5 inches) and broad jumps (128 inches) at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine. At 6-2 and 195 pounds, those scores put him in some elite company. There are some people who think he could even play some cornerback in the NFL.
Right now, Woods’ draft stock remains a bit of a mystery. Teams appear to be higher on him than mock drafts have been, with his availability sometimes lasting late into Day 3. I suspect that Woods won’t be around past Day 2 given the interest he’s seen in the pre-draft process, with visits and workouts with the Miami Dolphins, Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints per Kyed. Getting him in the building for a visit is a wise move by Kansas City as they continue to look at ways to revamp their defensive secondary ahead of the 2022 NFL season.
