Report: Cody to visit Ravens, Jets and Chargers

Alabama NT Terrence Cody is making the rounds with several NFL teams who might have vacancies in the middle of their 3-4 defenses.

Cody, a prototypical run-stuffer, is scheduled to visit the Ravens, Jets and Chargers, according Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.

The Jets and Chargers, who both pick at the end of the first round, might be looking for more immediate help.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock has noted most teams have graded Cody as a second-round pick, but he could sneak into the end of the first round. NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks subscribes to the same thought — he has the Chargers selecting Cody at No. 28 in his latest mock draft.

It’s been clear throughout the offseason that demand for nose tackles is at an all-time high as more teams convert to 3-4 schemes. We’ve watched as Vince Wilfork (Patriots), Ryan Pickett (Packers) and Aubrayo Franklins (49ers) were hit with franchise tags, Casey Hampton (Steelers) signed an extension, Jason Ferguson (Dolphins) was brought back despite a suspension and both Jamal Williams (Broncos) and Maake Kemoeatu (Redskins) switched teams.

Cody could be in position — literally — to reap the rewards.
