Moving on to round two of the 2010 NFL Draft, there is some speculation that Green Bay could possibly pick Terrance Cody, a defensive lineman from the University of Alabama. Cody It seems quite clear now that the Green Bay Packers' main priority is to draft mostly linemen, which they first showed with their intelligent draft choice of Brian Bulaga, an offensive lineman from Iowa. But is drafting Terrence Cody a smart choice for The Pack? It certainly is.

Terrence Cody was no doubt a valuable asset to the Alabama defense. Weighing in at 375 lbs, the defensive tackle is even scary to look at. Cody played in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama this year and was also a finalist for the Lombardi Award which is given to the top defensive player in the country. His height and his ability to run players over makes him the mean machine he is known for. CBS Sports calls him a "massive defender with rare strength." Cody is known throughout college football for being one of the strongest players at his position.

In my opinion, Green Bay has nothing to lose with this pick. Terrence Cody has proven through out his college football career that he is meant to be a strong NFL player that is both intelligent on the field, and has a heart for the game. We might just see the big guy in a green and yellow jersey.
