As referenced here by The Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson, Terrence Cody had the worst season of his career in 2012. His job is to hold at the point of attack, eat up blockers and stuff the run. However, Cody struggled in each one of these areas.
This is likely one of the main reasons the Baltimore Ravens drafted Brandon Williams in the third round of this past year’s draft. Williams faces the challenge of transitioning from the lesser competition he faced at small-school Missouri Southern to much better competition in the NFL.
However, he showed during this time at the Senior Bowl that he’s talented enough to quickly adjust. Williams does a great job using his strength and leverage to occupy blockers. He also boasts the quickness to get off the line and penetrate the pocket. It shouldn’t take long for the Ravens to notice that Williams offers more versatility than Cody.
