No one is saying it is easier, but not all 15 lbs are created equal
Ever heard the term "cut weight"? That's what fighters do, and more often than not includes dehydrating themselves a day before the weigh-in to shed 5-10 lbs of water to make the weight for the fight.

You also have to consider the size of the individual. Losing 15 lbs where you are 364 lbs is not the same as losing 15 lbs when you are say 200 lbs: the percentage of water+fat+muscle mass loss would be much higher in a person who weighs less.

In any case, I wouldn't mind seeing Cody in B&G with the 32nd pick. One minicap with the Saints and he'll be either dead or a svelte 300 lbs

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

I find it hard to believe this kid can keep the weight off..but that may not be a bad thing...He might play fine with it..its the conditioning that scares me...its a long season when you have to play 19 games.

He's got bigger man boobs than Canton. I'd say pass.

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

All you have to do is watch biggest loser every season to understand that the first 15 pounds are the easiest to drop. You body is shocked up to that point. It wants to attain a level of homeostasis so it's starts fighting the weight loss after that first week or so. The last 15 lbs of fat are the hardest to drop, and usually are centered in the glutes and the abdomen.

And that picture of Cody is gross by the way. Pass!

If no one is there that we want in the 1st then trade back and draft him mid second.

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

Warren Sapp played heavy his entire career, and look at the damage he did in the middle. I like Cody too. I think if he's there, and he's the best DT on the board, then take him. We need a DT in the first round in my opinion.

And consider this, at least Grant won't be around to show him where all the restaraunts are.

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

If you take him at # 32 he needs a full time Weight watcher equipted with one of those Cattle pronges they zap the raptors with from Jurassic Park to maintain his weight, He'll be a beast for someone but he's a Fatty and if theres one thing I know about Fat people is that they love to eat, Imagine what he's gonna do in the bayou,

I watched this guy dominate o-lines in the sec. He would be worth a 2rder. We could trade out of the first and get a rd2 and a rd4.

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

i know this is common sense but i feel like its been lost in the thought of drafting defensive linemen

THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BIG.....the bigger the better

of course they arent supposed to be slobs....but cody proved he isnt a slob in college.....the picture of him isnt going to be the prettiest thing.....the dude is 350 lbs....hes not going to have abs of steel people
