He was already the most prolific pass catcher in the Lake Area, coming off a junior season at Grand Rapids Northview when he had 58 receptions for 1,329 yards and 19 touchdowns. 5-11, 175- pound junior Cody Tierney showed he has the measurable as well, and comes away as the 2018 LMFR Combine Offensive MVP and looking all the part of a future MAC slot receiver.
Tierney ran the fastest 40-yard dash time at the combine, 4.41 seconds. He matched that with the longest power ball throw, 37’1″. Tierney also tuned in a top 10 no-step vertical leap at over 33″. That kind of explosion makes him a more dangerous threat in the end zone because of his ability to get off the ground and high-point the ball.
The drill session was also a good look for Tierney. One drop aside, he made the QBs’ lives easier with full-speed, well-paced, separation routes. Knows how to make a defender miss, either on the line or after the catch.
