CODY PEARCY - Workout Sensation
We all have a soft spot for The Underdog - it's "the American way". So when little, white guy Cody Pearcy, from Div III Glenwood College shows up at Pro Day workouts and mauls the competition, I just have to root for him. He's only about 5'9, 165 or so but he ran the 40 in 4.31, faster than any receiver at the NFL combine. His vertical jump measured 44 inches, better than any player in Indianapolis.
And the short shuttle, at 3.76 seconds, is one of the fastest in the combine's history.
He was the teams #1 receiver, forcing opponents to game-plan around him. An agent quickly snatched him up at the combine and has spoken to at leasy 24 teams about him. He projects as a DeSean Jackson - type slot receiver/KO/PR guy at the next level. Anybody interested in signing this guy? He projects as an UFA.
