LaMarr Dewayne Woodley (born November 3, 1984) is an American football linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played collegiately for the University of Michigan. He was born in Saginaw, Michigan.

Coming out of high school, Woodley was rated the #14 player in the country by Rivals.com and was recruited nationally by University of Florida, University of Michigan, Michigan State, USC, and many other schools. Woodley teamed with former Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers and Chicago Bulls point guard Anthony Roberson at Saginaw High School in 2000 to win Michigan's Division II state championship in football.

Woodley played for the Wolverines at the University of Michigan. He predominantly played defensive end and sometimes linebacker, depending on the front seven's alignment. In 2006, Woodley was named the defensive captain of the Wolverines by his teammates. He collected 12 sacks as a senior and won the Lombardi Award as the best lineman, offensive or defensive, in the country. Playing off his defensive prowess, and especially the injuries incurred by quarterbacks Drew Stanton and Bryan Cupito while playing against Woodley, T-shirts were created by Dave Peabody of the blog Michigan Against the World and sold in Ann Arbor with the slogan, "Guns don't kill people. LaMarr Woodley kills people." His 12 sacks led the Big Ten conference, and it ranked 8th in the nation to George Selvie.
