Think you would be surprised how little correlation there is between bench press and effectiveness of offensive linemen.

Effectively zero

His SS/3-cone/10 yd split are what I care about. Literally never got overpowered last year

Did he really just put 19 reps on the press??

#Oklahoma OL Cody Ford felt some tightness in his shoulder after rep 15, his agent Chris Coy said, explaining why he had the long pause on his bench press today. He’s going to re-bench at his Pro Day on March 13th.

Curious to see what he does at pro day. This man plays super strong in my opinion. Think he can crush more than 19 reps easy

If anyone is seriously thinking this discounts Ford, look at his teammate Orlando Brown last year. Dude had an atrocious combine but was a stud for the Ravens.

Sure, evaluations are part film and part combine performance. But bench is such a useless metric.

He'll do better at the Pro Day regardless.

If his shoulder is ok I’m thinking he will push more than 25.

Yeah Orlando Brown was great for Sooners and then a terrible combine so his stock dropped.

It’s true for all positions that the tape is the most important thing - but NFL Combine tells you less about offensive linemen than probably any other position.   It’s still a good tool but not as important in the evaluation process as other positions.

Reports say he pulled strained something shoulder wise and they could tell how he held the weights in the air after the rep...  He will lift at the pro day

 

So we will see

If he did no better at pro day, I wouldn’t care much.

I’d care if his shoulder became an issue, but glad he was precautious.

Yes, OL need more than bench strength. Technique and understanding of your system/teammates/specific opponents over time matter more.

a ZBS doesn’t need a mauler but it’d be nice to have one if this is about RG.

Film indeed. the number on the surface seemed odd to me. Which is why single tests mean little in of themselves. Play strong, test weak who cares. Can you play Sundays?

I’m not worried about Fords playing strength.

When he gets hands on you for the most part he vice grips you and the play For is opposite is normally over.

Tell you what though I still like Jawaan Taylor of Florida and I don’t think there’s much in it between these 2.Meetings and medical are things e don’t know so maybe that’s a differentiator.

If he can be anywhere close to what Quenton Nelson is for the Colts he needs to be at the top of the draft board

Nelson is a generational talent. Good luck finding another one like him in the next 5-8 drafts

Hes incredible. Never saw a rookie guard come in and dominate like him. He was like Faneca in his prime as a rookie.

Taylor will be the first OL off the board.  Looks like a slightly smaller version of Trent Brown

We need to get nasty on the offensive line again. Stop playing around with these finesse guys and road grate some mofos.

I have a feeling he'll be off the board :(

It's a chance he might be gone.... If these teams take 4 QBS like we are hearing I think he will be there.

 

But yea it depends on if teams see him as a tackle or guard

If you think Ford is a finesse guy you're nuts

This makes me happy.   I am  really high on Cody Ford right now.    He is the type of butt-kicker we need to change the offensive line.  We need a dominator.

If you go to jail and this guy is your cellmate, you might as well start wearing dresses :lol:

You can see pretty clearly that Ford's arms are not insanely muscular. Most of his bulk is in his lower body. That's where he gets his anchor strength.

Cody Ford will be one of the better guards in the league

He would be my choice if we go O line. He's big and can play guard or right tackle.
