He will be fine, no matter where he winds up. This past season, the way they
ran the offense, was detrimental to most of their receivers. Let's face
it, the quarterback wasn't to proficient in the passing game until later on
into the season. Relied more on legs than arm. The new offense was not working
like they intended and never did really click last season. This year's
offense should be much improved and more productive from the get-go.
He's a player that looks good on paper. However, on the field he excelled
against weak opponents and often disappeared against the rare, tougher teams.
Also, he got away with a lot of offensive interference against the DB's
that although worked for Michael Irvin, I don't think he'll get away
with in the NFL.
Fine - you win Chris B: Utah does a better job putting players into
the NFL than BYU does. Good for U. It must feel great to know that your school
is willing to maintain a losing schedule so it can create a few - say less than
.001% of its players making it int the NFL. What a giving set of fans to keep
commenting on a team you don't play and a willingness to be the scout team
for the PAC.I will think warm thoughts of you from Miami this
Cody Hoffman makes plays.Hopefully... getting dissed by talking
heads will motivate him to replicate his Junior year as he moves on toward a
career in the NFL.
Cody Hoffman is a good receiver who will have a nice career as a backup in the
NFL. His play this past year was not a reflection on him but rather who was
throwing him the ball. With an NFL QB throwing him the ball he will be just
fine. Great hands, size and control. He should have a career similar to Collie.
Well, hopefully without the injuries.
I thought it highly interesting that none of the constant anti-BYU naysayers
could be found commenting on the first article in this series. Hopefully
Utah's Trevor Reilly will do incredibly well, despite the multitude of
negative "fans" that supposedly support his team (though while spewing
negativity about a BYU player, were predictably silent on a player from
"their" team ... if it could be said with any accuracy that they have a
team).Cody Hoffman is an incredible receiver with the type of body
(and hands) that bodes well for a long-term career, though obviously, in the
NFL, nothing is guaranteed. Good luck Cody!
hard to say where he'll go. It definitely seems he hurt his draft stock
coming back for his senior year. I agree with the one assessment that something
seemed lacking in his approach mentally and emotionally to his senior year
compared to what we saw as a junior. Still, the guy put up huge numbers despite
having 4 different starting QB's throw to him and being in some terrible
offenses. I hope to see him drafted.
I'm not terribly impressed with the way Hoffman played this past year.
Something was not right. He seemed very lackadaisical on the field and struggled
to show up when the Offense needed points scored.I am not sure what
the difference was between his Senior and Junior years. He seemed to always be
in the right place at the right time with our beloved Riley Nelson was behind
the center, but maybe that just showed that Hoffman was a great impromptu
receiver. I honestly don't expect much from him. He will be an
undrafted free agent and will be signed shortly following the draft like most
BYU players over the past 5-10 years. He will go to camp somewhere and be cut a
few weeks later. I wish him the best and hope that his work ethic
and physicality with improve to make a roster. But there isn't a surprise
when it comes to Hoffman, he is what he is. Not terribly athletic, not physical
at the line or with DBs, but extremely sure handed.
Cody has amazing body control and hands and can out fight most db's for the
ball. He is not lights out speed, but his height gives him an advantage over
most db's and his production doesn't lie. It is hard to say how he
will do in the NFL, but I think he could be a real steal in the later rounds.
@Riley MendenhallProvo, UT"When I was at BYU all the talk
was about Todd Watkins. This will be the same, much hype from BYU fans about
this guy, but he won't make the next level."That's an
unfair assessment of this young man's talents I think! Just because
someone was hyped before and didn't work out doesn't mean Hoffman will
not make it too. What will you say if he does get drafted and end up a
successful receiver in the NFL after all? I think he's an NFL caliber
receiver and will be an asset to any team that drafts him. Go Cody!
Game film doesn't lie he can ball!!! Chris B your assessment is way off
course. Cody H.was, is and will be a great receiver!!!
When I was at BYU all the talk was about Todd Watkins. This will be the same,
much hype from BYU fans about this guy, but he won't make the next level.
I think Cody's very horrible combine showed he is one of the best
receivers(who played a WAC schedule) but put up most of those numbers against
WAC teams.Scouts don't have much video of him against big time
opponents compared to most receivers.
No respect coming out of high school, works his way into the record books in
college.Less than stellar numbers his senior year, no excuses,
skeptical reviews coming out of college.I too think someone is going
to get a bargain.
