Default Shaun Cody...next great 3-4 DE?

The possibilty of a trade down, and the woeful lack of talent at DT, had me thinking about alternate picks for the draft. Assuming the Texans are able to trade down, I think that Shaun Cody could be a viable option.

Shaun has the frame to play DE, he may need to add a little more weight (but only if it does not inhibit his speed). He's got the natural pass rushing skills (maybe even a more natural pass rusher than Peek and Babin), and is beter then average against the run, how succesful was OU at running up the gut? Yes, JJ Arington gave at of the USC defense some fits, but then again the USC D-line didn't have the linebacker core we have backing them up. There are zero character issues, he is a proven winner and seems to have all the intangables that one would want in a player.

The thought of Shaun Cody and Babin lining up on the strong side and Smith and Peek on the weak side sounds very tempting to me. The fact that he is more of a DT/DE tweener will help the Texans if they decdie to trade down and target him.

Just curious if I'm dillusional (again?) are if anybody agrees with me.
