Default Dan Cody

I have seen two mock draft's this morning having the Texans draft Dan Cody with the 13th pick. What gives...did this guy do something between now and the BCS Championship game to boost his stock. From what I know he is a big kid with a huge motor but is a little light too play line in the 3-4. NFLdraftshowcase.com has him listed at 6-5 260lbs. What gives yall?

I think that has to strictly do with the fact none of the other teams ahead of us need him. I wouldn't be to mad with that pick though because I am sure that guy will grow even more once he gets here.

But to play DE in a 3-4...we're talking big...295lbs+ and to ask someone to put on that much weight is insane...I don't like the idea. i feel that we could do better than Dan Cody at the 13th pick. Maybe trade down and select, that makes more sense but I don't the like the Texans taking him in the first round period.

that's what I was thinking but would you pick him up at #13 to play OLB? I mean that would be a mistake imo.

Do you mean Shaun Cody (USC)?? Everything I've seen has Shaun going in the top half of the first round - or at least top 20. Dan Cody (OU) is a lower 1st rounder or maybe even high second depending on how everything goes. Both play DE. Shaun also played DT in college - he's 285-290 lbs. Dan Cody is about 265.

I think they will continue to look for guys in the Peek, Anderson, Raheem Orr mold in the mid rounds. They probably won't draft conversion projects as high as Babin every year.
