Patrick Ian Woodcock (born April 27, 1977 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a Canadian football wide receiver who is currently a free agent.

Woodcock attended American College at Syracuse University between 1997 and 2000 and he attended Holy Trinity Catholic High School, which is located in Kanata, Ontario. He was signed as a free agent by the New York Giants of the National Football League in 2001 and made two appearances on special teams, returning six kickoffs for 113 yards and two punts for 16 yards, but was released in Week 3.[1][2] He was then signed by the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL where he went on to win a Grey Cup with them in 2002. In 2003 he was signed by the Washington Redskins of the NFL but was released by them, and he was then re-signed by the Alouettes. He was signed by the Ottawa Renegades in 2004. In 2006, he was selected in the fourth round (32nd overall) by the Edmonton Eskimos in the Renegades' dispersal draft.

In March 2008, Woodcock signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a free agent.[3]

"The cuts announced did give life to some training camp long shots, players few expected to make the team like the Syracuse wide receiver Pat Woodcock, who is only 5 feet 9 and 166 pounds. Woodcock made the team -- so far -- in part because he can play on special teams."
