Tide's Cody, Arenas battle size issues in NFL bid

By  | 

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama All-Americans Terrence Cody and
Javier Arenas are trying to answer questions regarding their size
at the Senior Bowl.

Cody weighed in at 370 pounds in front of NFL scouts, coaches
and executives - 16 more than his official playing weight last
season. Arenas measured up at 5-foot-8 and 195 pounds.

Cody's said he didn't feel heavy running around the practice
field Monday, hours after the weigh-in. He says he'll be in better
shape in time for the NFL combine. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock
said how many quality snaps Cody will be able to take is an issue
for NFL teams.

Arenas is one of college football's top punt returners as well
as an All-American cornerback. Coach Nick Saban says he can
contribute to pro teams in a lot of ways.
