MOBILE, ALA. — During two seasons at Alabama, nose tackle Terrence “Mount” Cody became a state landmark and a big-name attraction in the world of college football.
He also became an All-America and the anchor of the Crimson Tide’s national championship defense in 2009.
But these days, Cody’s size doesn’t create quite the fascination it did in college. Instead, his weight — 370 pounds spread not so impressively on a 6-foot-4 frame — worries NFL decision-makers preparing for the draft.
Cody, 21immediately raised concerns when he stepped onto the scale for the weigh-in preceding Saturday’s Senior Bowl.
“At 370, he’s a little sloppy,” said NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock.
Even so, Cody has been effective during practices with the South squad, coached by Tony Sparano and his Dolphins staff.
