The more I think about it, the more I agree. His weight will be a big issue come draft time. I think he needs to get down to about 340 pounds to be considered a 1st round draft pick. With the heavy conditioning they do in the NFL, you can be sure teams will be scared off by his 365 pounds.

By the time he is 25, 26 years old he will be so fat we will have to draft another NT. There are only a few massive NT that can carry that much weight and play at a high level. I just don't think he is one of them. If he is there 2nd or 3rd Rd. I wouldn't mind him.

Still on his current team. Talks about him having to show up this year in order to stay around.

I agree, if hes there in the 2nd or 3rd than yes, we should take a flyer on him. Only person I know that could carry that weight and perform at a high level was Ted Washington. But even he was considered a bust his first years in the league. Like I mentioned, Cody is gonna have to show he can shed some weight and handle conditioning in the NFL to be considered a 1st round pick.
Suh could be a special player but probably does best in a Pittsburgh or Tennessee type defense.

Cody is a big run stuffer and eats up blockers and space. More traditional type 3-4 NT but I have those conditioning concerns with him as well. He looks really good in the first half of games.
