View Full Version : Terrence “Mount” Cody hoping to melt away the pounds

Terrence Cody can do the math: less pounds will equal more dollars for Alabama’s All-America nose tackle.
Besides everything having to do with Tim Tebow, the biggest storyline out of the Senior Bowl might be Cody’s weight.
We’re talking BIG.

The 6-foot-4 Cody weighed-in at an unsightly 370 pounds on Monday, raising a red flag for teams considering throwing millions his way.
One of those teams could be the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins could make a run at New England’s Vince Wilfork or decide to draft a young nose tackle to develop.
Cody, who anchored a national championship defense, is the best nose tackle prospect in the 2010 rookie class.
To get better, Cody, 21, plans to shed 30 pounds and play at 340 pounds.
At that weight, he expects, “I can be a real dangerous player.”
But can he remain one?
“The question is if we hand you a bunch of money are you going to stay at 340,” NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said.

:lol2: Of course, he did play on the same team as Andre Smith.

if we take him at #12 i'm wearing nothing but a bra the rest of draft day.

It's so wrong. Like a 9 car pile up I-95 or something. So fat and no muscles it seems on the arms. It's so magnifcently horrible.

Imagine if he really worked hard to shed weight and gain muscle, he could be monster strong very soon.

Stay away from this wide load....

Cody would lose 10 pounds with a haircut. He'd be a big oak if he swapped the other 20 pounds of fat with muscle. In the mean time, let's sign this guy:

i think he could take on that sumo wrestler

Another article. His weight will be an issue because if he continues to play at 370 his knees and back will be a major problem down the road. That is not to say that he can't be effective at that weight. He does his job great and that is to take on two blockers in the middle and open up holes for the linebackers. I hope he is available for us in the second but I don't think he will be.

Would def take him in the second round. He reminds me of Ted Washington who had a solid NFL career at 375. Note Cody came into Alabama at 405 and then shed down to 350 at one point. If he could shed another 20 pounds he would be alot quicker coming off that line. Though i think he could be an effective two down nose tackle at 370. He has 34" arms and 11 1/4 hands and great strength despite the lack of muscle defintion. Note that Shaun Rodgers of the browns has been playing 370 since putting on about 30 pounds since drafted, nobody seemed to mind and hes holding up alright in the NFL. Yea Cody is a high risk player but i think its worth the reward of the blocks he can eat up to free up are linebackers which was a huge problem this year. Bring Solai in on 3rd and let Cody dominate the middle of the line on 1st and 2nd.

i don't care what people think/say

for many reasons, i want terrence cody on our team, point blank

He's been so productive at the college level that if he's there in the 2nd round we'd have to draft him and then immediately send his *** to fat camp. That is a LOT of bodyfat for a young pro athlete to be carrying. Cody needs a full time regimen I think.

01-28-2010, 07:01 PM
I watched every college game Cody played and he is no more a risk than any other player at that position in my opinion. I would draft him at two if he is there.

01-29-2010, 01:34 AM
hes a two down lineman with no pass rushing skills. i dont know if id even take him in the second.

01-29-2010, 01:46 AM
There are many other NT's that I'd take over Cody. Having Soliai and/or Fergeson play the nose on running downs and draft a b.price in the 2nd round to play the nose would be a better scenario than Cody in the second.

From CBS:


Terrance Cody's sloppy build may draw sneers, but the big man is helping himself this week with his stout play inside. Teams knew he could hold the point against double-teams, but seeing him stuff the action on television is much different than watching him blow up plays before they even get a chance to begin in person. Cody clearly isn't the same dominant player at the end of practice that he is in the beginning, but if substituted often, he could quickly emerge as one of the league's better nose guards. As a specialist, it might be too much to think he'll earn a first round pick, but there is no way he'll get out of the second round if he comes in healthy at the Combine.
