Cody Ford Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: The first thing that shows up on the tape is the power displayed by Cody Ford…profiles to be a potentially dominant force in the run game…remarkably quick with agile feet for a man 6’4 330…if Ford gets his bear paws on you, it’s a wrap…does a good job of not reaching and resulting in holding penalties…plays with a nastiness that defines the position…

WEAKNESSES: Despite having quick feet—Cody Ford’s feet are a bit erratic and clumsy at times…his arch-nemesis is the skilled speed rusher—they give him problems too often…his hips are a bit too stiff…Cody Ford’s leverage is inconsistent and needs further development…

COMP: Cordy Glenn

OVERALL: In a class where most of our offensive line prospects are being asked to play on the entire, Cody Ford projects to be an above average, potentially dominant Right Tackle…Ford plays to the whistle and doesn’t mind getting nasty with it…there are some things to work on, but from a starting standpoint, Cody Ford is pretty advanced and far along…some may feel that he projects better to the offensive guard position, but I like him at Right Tackle. Ultimately, he might be the top offensive tackle drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft, and I would expect him drafted in the Top 10-20 picks.
