Draft Rewind 2005 - Shaun Cody - Houston Texans

What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SHAUN CODY: Southern Cal, 6040 293 5.06. Intelligent and aware player. Good interior instincts to feel and read play. Quick to read and react and get in on plays. Sudden initial quickness to get into and off of blocks. Outstanding lateral movement to slide and clear his feet in traffic. Plays under his pads with good knee bend and leverage. Can be explosive when he uncoils. Flashes ability to dominate his opponent. Can lock out and control the blocker with his hands, press off, shed, and get in on tackle. Outstanding use of his hands. Relentless to the ball with his intensity. Very good range, speed, and takes good angles in pursuit. Will sacrifice his body to make a tackle. As a tackler he is effective, explosive and a wrap up technician. Has an explosive power rush with good anticipation and take off. Pushes the pocket and is especially effective on inside stunts. When on an edge he can speed rush and has a burst to run to the corner and close off blocks. Technique conscious player who uses his hand strength and quick hands to execute a pass rush or defend the run. Versatile enough to play inside or outside in a 4/ 3 or 3/4 defensive scheme. Could be stronger at the point of attack at times and grab grass to create a pile. Will lose his knee bend and get high and rolled out at times. A high motor great effort player who will be an asset to any team that drafts him. Plays disciplined within defensive scheme. A disruptive, relentless player with good foot mobility and athletic ability. Usually draws two or three blockers per play, but works to the quarterback until the whistle. Effective on twist stunts and plays good on his feet. Makes a lot of “hustle” plays. Plays hard every down. (Originally drafted by Detroit)
