Former Cincinnati Bengals running back Ickey Woods announced the team's second-round NFL draft pick on Friday, lending the same enthusiasm to the effort that he's become renowned for in the GEICO cold cuts commercials.
Woods "shuffled" his way to the podium before giving his trademark "WOOOO!" and announcing the pick. Before stepping off the mic, he shouted, "Yeah, we need that tackle baby! Woooo!"
Woods played for the Bengals from 1988 to 1991, earning All-Pro honors in 1988 when he led the AFC 15 rushing touchdowns as a rookie out of UNLV. Over four seasons, he rushed 332 times for 1,525 yards and 27 touchdowns and caught 47 passes for 397 yards.
