Different kind of player. Cody was like an oversized, sluggish version of Jesse Williams, a guy who was there to stuff the run and little else. "Big titties" overpowered the competition in college, showed no pass rush ability whatsoever. Jenkins is far more athletic and a much better pass rusher than Cody was. I hate when people try to equate two players together because they both happen to be big. Cody was an NT, period, Jenkins moved around and played every position on the defensive line. At 350....360....not a good prospect...at anywhere under 340, he's a much better talent. Jenkins never had as sloppy of a build as Cody and at his lower weight, he is significantly more muscular and mobile.
