If ever there was a wildcard in the NFL draft Terrance Cody is it. The 6’4 370 man they call “Mount Cody” will be on display in this April’s NFL draft and he has some NFL scouts scratching their heads and drooling at the same time. On the one hand they’re seeing a freak of a giant athlete who has gifts certain people are only born with and on the other they see a guy who’s athletic abilities are questionable on the NFL level. Some scouts feel his weight is scary. Bottom line, I think if this guy winds up in the right scheme on the right team he can do big things.
Take the Tennessee Titans for instance…he would fit in perfect. Some only view Cody as a 3-4 type of nosetackle but I actually think he can develop good hands and be plenty athletically gifted to compete on this level. Bottom line is that when you turn on Alabama games the guy is making great plays in key moments.
Coach Fisher and the defensive staff could work wonders with him in the lineup as a run blocker and pocket collapser. Tennesse has a knack for getting out the best in young defensive talents. Haynesworth took a little time but when he came around he was the best defensive tackle in the league and one of the most dominant in NFL history. Not saying Cody will be that but he could definetly come in and give a much needed boost. Who knows, he may even block a game winning field goal or two…..
