GM Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens are among the best at what they do. Their time to shine is the NFL draft as the Ravens are consistently one of the better drafting teams around.
SB Nation's Baltimore Beatdown has noticed that praises them once again for the selection of Alabama NT Terrence Cody in the second round.
For months, this was maybe the most sought after pick in Baltimore. While so many teams and fan bases gave no consideration for Cody joining their squad because of weight issues, the Ravens and their fans welcomed it. Can't tell you how happy everyone should be with this pick. Does he need to work on his weight? Of course. But the guy is a monster. Cody is the perfect run stuffing Nose Tackle that this defense loves having. He will have a great chance to start from day 1 and should make for an immovable tandem with him and Haloti Ngata. Absolutely incredible pick. Cody "Plays Like a Raven."
The overall grade was an A and they make a good case for it.
Here are all the Ravens draft picks:
Round 2 (43) - Sergio Kindle - OLB - Texas
Round 2 (57) - Terrence Cody - NT- Alabama
