Draft Scout Cody Pearcy News
06/30/12 - WR Cody Pearcy was waived by the Falcons.
04/09/12 - The mere possibility of an NFL draftee on campus has been a hot topic at Huntingdon. As head coach Mike Turk pointed out, “We’re not exactly a hotbed for NFL talent.” To be fair, the school has only had a football program for nine years, and NFL teams typically don’t scour D-III rosters looking for players. In the past 20 years, only 15 D-III players have been drafted. “We’re having a lot of fun with it,” Turk said. “Everyone’s talking about it. I’ve had quite a few phone calls from teams all over the league. They all want to know the same thing — why don’t we know about this kid. They’re asking a lot of the same questions that we do when we’re recruiting players, trying to find out what kind of kids they are.” Turk believes NFL teams will find Pearcy to be the hardworking overachiever that he appears to be. That’s what he’s been at Huntingdon, where he caught 97 passes for more than 1,800 yards the last two years. “He’s always been a guy who plays his best in big situations — a gamer, I guess, is the best way to describe him,” Turk said. “He works hard, always has for us. He’s determined. And when the lights are on, he really shines.” - Josh Moon, The Montgomery Advertiser
04/09/12 - “The kid has NFL talent,” said ASU head coach Reggie Barlow, a former NFL wideout himself with Jacksonville, Oakland and Tampa Bay. “He’s explosive. I actually filmed it. You can tell the kid has talent and is fast. He’s been training really well and really hard.” Barlow wasn’t the only one impressed. As soon as the pro day ended, a scout from the Miami Dolphins took Pearcy into a room at ASU’s athletic complex for an hour-long interview. Since then, he’s talked with the Giants and Eagles. He’s held private workouts with the Colts — who had great success with their last D-III wideout, a guy named Pierre Garcon — and the Eagles. The Falcons are trying to set up something for next week, too. And there are others still calling. In literally a blink of an eye, Pearcy has gone from an unheard-of nobody with a foolish dream to a legitimate potential draft pick in this month’s NFL draft. “I’ve had some people tell me that I could go on the third day (rounds 4-7),” Pearcy said. “But I think a more realistic possibility is a priority free agent deal.” Look who’s realistic all of a sudden. - Josh Moon, The Montgomery Advertiser
04/03/12 - At a little over 5-10 and 161 pounds, Pearcy knows he must continue to make a big impression. But at the very least he should be invited to some teams' training camp for a closer look. Or if a team is impressed enough by his workouts and game tapes, there's an outside chance somebody will draft him. Pearcy is rated as a priority free agent by NFLDraftScout.com, meaning he should expect to be signed as a free agent as soon as the draft ends. If, of course, he isn't selected in the draft. At Huntingdon College, a small Methodist school in Montgomery that only established a football program in 2003, Pearcy made a statement as a junior when he caught 51 passes for 1,078 yards -- more than 21 yards per catch -- and a dozen touchdowns. Last season, playing also as a returner and defensive back, Pearcy caught 46 passes for 766 yards and eight more scores. His athletic ability was evident at Glenwood High in his hometown of Phenix City, Ala., about an hour's drive from Montgomery. He starred on back-to-back AISA State championship basketball teams, one AISA State Championship soccer team and was the football team's Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. He was also on the golf team. But there was nothing to indicate he could turn in an elite performance in a pro day workout. Well, nothing except Pearcy's belief in himself. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
04/03/12 - "I knew I was improving on my own each year, but felt if I just had a little training I might get some really good results," he said. Aucoin, who has trained hundreds of athletes, said there didn't seem to be anything special about Pearcy when he showed up in search of training. "He looked like a normal kid off the street, but as soon as he moved you could tell he had a lot of firepower and needed direction," Aucoin said. "He is much stronger than he appears. He is wound tight and ready to explode." But even during training Aucoin did not see the types of marks Pearcy managed at the pro day. "We timed him at the end of workouts, so he was not fresh," Aucoin said. "And our 40-yard run is a little longer than 40 yards, by about a foot and a half, so they have more incentive to improve their time. I think he did a 4.45 on our 40-plus." Cody did have a few believers before the newsworthy workout -- his parents, sister and older half brother. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
