Cody showcases impressive bend for his size and has the ability to get under the pad level of opposing linemen. However, he doesn't get off the ball well and lacks much of a first step. He possesses elite anchor strength on contact and is nearly impossible to move inside. Cody eats up blocks inside and does a great job keeping his linebackers clean. Obviously, he lacks ideal range when asked to reach the perimeter, but he moves well for his size and works hard in pursuit. He's a real two-gap player who possesses the body control and balance to work his way toward the block when engaged and close running lanes on either side. Cody lacks the ability to shed blocks inside, but he knows how to close gaps and work his way toward the ball, even against the double team.
