Sparano on Cody

Cody Has To Downsize

 

Even Dolphins/South team coach Tony Sparano, pressed on the issue of Cody's weight, allowed "he'd have to lose a few for me."


"Just watching him right now, he's a pretty unique guy," Sparano said. "You watch him on tape and you see him play and then you see him in person. He's a big, strong, powerful guy."

"I think I caught their eyes when we were going over the playbook," Cody said. " I showed them I knew all the plays and I knew what this defense was about."

Cody's critics say he isn't a three-down player, that he wouldn't be useful on passing downs, but that wouldn't make him unsual for the position in the NFL.

"The big, physical noses in our league, they're pretty much two-down guys," Sparano said. "Certainly not pass rushers there."

A week's worth of practices should give Sparano and his staff enough early hints to know if they want to bring the Mount Cody show to South Florida, but for now the coach isn't giving anything away.

"I'm just coaching him," Sparano said, "and I'm going to keep my eyes wide open."

 

Also....

“There’s not many 370-pound guys running around out there,” Sparano said. “I think when you find a guy that’s that big and can play that position and you look around the league at the teams that have those type of players – New England has Wilfork down there and [Kris] Jenkins with the Jets — you realize how rare they are.”

 

I wonder how he feels about Cody at 340 on draft day?
