Cody Ford, OT-OG, Oklahoma #74

6040, 343, 5.48

Notes: From Pineville, LA. Redshirted in 2015. Started the first 3 games at left guard before suffering a broken ankle/lower leg that forced him to miss the rest of 2016. Played in 12 games and made 4 starts at left guard, missing 2 games due to concussion, in 2017. Broken ankle and concussion earlier. Healthy in 2018, he started all 14 games at right tackle for the Sooners. Has graduated and gotten his degree.

Positives: Has an impressive combination of size, strength, athleticism, footwork and nastiness. Can dominate and bury defenders. Smart and technically advanced. Finishes blocks. Moves well for his size. Can pull and get downfield. Strong and sturdy on pass protection, especially inside at guard. Has some position versatility having played guard and right tackle.

Negatives: Lacks outstanding initial quickness and explosion. A bit heavy-footed at times. May struggle with elite quickness and speed off the edge. Still developing his overall technique.

Summary: Solid prospect at either guard spot, possibly right tackle. Should start early in his pro career.
