Maybe Terrence Cody Will Make It To The Chiefs After All

I've previously expressed a concern about the Chiefs picking defense with the 36th pick in the draft. That's because of the eight teams between picks 22-29, seven play a 3-4 defense. That means those scheme-specific players could go on a run late in the first round.

One of those players is Alabama NT Terrence Cody, one of the few true nose tackles in all of the draft.

However, it's possible Cody isn't snagged at one of those positions, according to a poll of various personnel men by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

When 20 national-oriented scouts were asked to rank their favorite defensive tackles on a 1-to-5 basis, Ndamukong Suh led with 15 1/2 firsts and 95 1/2 points compared to Gerald McCoy's 4 1/2 firsts and 84 1/2 points.

Following, in order were Dan Williams (48), Brian Price (30), Jared Odrick (29), Tyson Alualu (nine), Cody (two), Linval Joseph (one) and Al Woods (one).

And Todd Haley's fitness plan? 

Well, Cody would be the slowest defensive tackle drafted in 20 freakin' years. 

I'm intrigued by the guy because so few play his position but these numbers are definitely an eye-opener.
