Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Nose tackle Terrence Cody: If the Ravens hadn't traded out of the first round, they would have considered him at No. 25 overall. Instead, Baltimore got him near the bottom of the second round. The Ravens' run defense showed some uncharacteristic lapses last season, and starting nose tackle Kelly Gregg is showing some wear and tear. Cody will anchor the middle of the line for the next decade.
A closer look at the Ravens' picks: Round 2/57 -- Terrence Cody, NT, 6-4, 360, Alabama, The Ravens were hoping that Cody would slip to them later in the second round. Cody was the second-best nose tackle in the draft and was considered a first-round talent by the Ravens. The biggest concern is his weight because he reported to the Senior Bowl in January at 370 pounds. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Terrence Cody News
02/03/15 - DT Terrence Cody was waived by the Ravens Monday, shortly before he was indicted for animal cruelty. A Baltimore County grand jury indicted Cody, who was released on $10,000 bail.
Among the 15 charges Cody faces, according to the state prosecutor, seven are related to abuse of a dog, six are related to abuse of an alligator and two are related to marijuana possession.
The Ravens had said on Jan. 23 that they would terminate his contract after the Super Bowl. They have not said whether the decision had anything to do the animal cruelty investigation.
Cody's agent, Peter Schaffer, reportedly thought so.
Schaffer told The Baltimore Sun last month that Cody was very upset over the death of his $8,000 Spanish bull mastiff, who died after Cody had taken it to a veterinarian for treatment, the agent said.
Schaffer blamed the NFL for the Ravens' decision to terminate Cody ahead of his scheduled free agency. The Ravens were heavily criticized for their handling of the Ray Rice case last year, and Schaffer said the Ravens were trying to avoid a similar scenario.
"The fact that the NFL has created such an atmosphere of hysteria that tramples on due process rights, the right of law and common decency is a tremendous problem in our league and our society," Schaffer told the Sun. "This young man's dog has died and the Ravens were so worried about possible ramifications from the league that they took a preemptive strike. If I find out that anyone holds anything against my client because of this, I will take every and all legal action to make sure my client's rights are vindicated.
"We don't fault the Ravens," Schaffer added. "They're put in this awkward predicament of what's going on. We hold the Ravens in the highest regard. It's a predicament caused by the significant overreaction of the league that tramples on players' rights. I'm not going to sit idly by and let it happen to my client."
