I think he'd be a healthand injury concern. someone that big probably can't last too long on the field. NFL shoud have some limits on health.

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

He would definitely help stop those runs up the middle. That seemed to be out biggest problem on defense last year.

If we did take him then Canton's respect level on this board would depend entirely on Cody making it more than 2 years on the Saints roster before he completely devours his own body and the third string QB.

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

Too many questions about his weight, conditioning, and health in general. If Witherspoon is there at #32, I think we have to take him.

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

cody shouldnt have weight questions......he dropped 15 lbs in 30 days to trim back to a 354.......

in the NFL he will play at or just under 350

like you said, our biggest problem was stopping the run last year and that is what cody is best at....not to mention he could occupy blockers and allow us to blitz by those blockers

if anybody watched him this season then you know there are no injury concerns......there are no conditioning concerns.....the only question is weight......but why? because he showed up 20 lbs heavier to a meaningless game that he was invited to

then at the more important even he showed up at playing weight when he was 354 at the combine......there were no weight concerns before or during the season.....the only time that came up was after the season was over

but he didnt pull an andre smith and show up at the combine overweight, he learned his lesson and dropped back down

whoever thinks his weight is a problem absolutely ignores the truth about terrence cody. that truth is that he is a big guy and is going to help some team in the league.......do we want it to be us?

i say yes

Re: Mount Cody..2nd rounder?

just heard cody weighs 348 lbs at alabama's pro day

said he wants to weigh 340 by the draft date

said he is working very hard to stay in shape and is constantly conditioning

he realizes this is his job and hes going to have to stay in shape in order to play it

He won't slip to the last half of the second round.

O good, Canton has fixated on one prospect again.

The guy is a big clog in the middle, sure I'll admit that. But I have waaaaaaayyyyyy too many concerns about his "giant fat ass-edness" for me to feel comfortable drafting him in the first round. Obviously he's going to be motivated to drop weight now, but after he gets his millions, these types of fat slobs tend to let their weight balloon. That's not always the case, and maybe Cody will be different, but he did play well upwards of 350 this past season, so he's shown that he doesn't always control his weight. That's not a great sign for the future.

Plus, if you watched him this past season, you would have seen him constantly jogging on and off the field. Terrible conditioning. He usually could play a max of two plays in a row before he needed a breather.

When you weigh 369 lbs, dropping 15 pounds is not that big of a deal. He could've easily lost 15 lbs in water weight inside a sauna the day before the weigh-in.

.. and there has to be a better term that "trim back" when you are 350+ lbs

.. that said, if he weighs 350 lbs, he needs only to stand in the middle of the field or fall on top of the guard..
