Cody Whitehair

Kansas State University
OG #55
6’4″ 305

Pros:

  • Size (6’4”, 305)
  • Strong, powerful lower half produces ideal drive blocks
  • Gets his hands inside
  • Fluidity and athleticism allow him to get to the second level with ease
  • Creates running lanes
  • Desirable short set anchor
  • Light, quick feet
  • Blocks with great leverage and balance
  • Knee bender with wide base; doesn’t lose his feet in the process
  • Complete body control; no wasted or extra movement
  • Four year starter at a position not best suited for him
  • Squares up and mirrors defenders well in space
  • Stalemates defenders and dictates their positioning; he controls them, not the other way around
  • Only three penalties and two sacks allowed in 923 snaps

Cons:

  • Plays tall
  • Lacks good length (31” arms)
  • Very little experience coming out of a three point stance
  • Will allow linemen too close to his body and lean on defenders

Whitehair is a four-time All-Big 12 honoree who started 51 of his 52 career games, including a streak of 41 straight to end his career. In 2015, he started all 13 games at left tackle on his way to First Team All-Big 12 honors; he was also named a team captain and earned First Team Academic All-Big 12 honors. Whitehair will be a guard at the next level.
