In which BracketCat counts down the 80th day until kickoff with a profile of tight end Cody Small.

I'm not saying Cody Small will be the next Travis Tannahill, but dang, wouldn't it be nice if he could be someday?

Don't be fooled by his name — David Cody Small (b. Sept. 16, 1993) is anything but small.

A talented young tight end who benefited from a redshirt season in 2013, Small originally signed with K-State out of high school in 2012, but spent that fall as a part-time student paying his own way — also known as a "grayshirt."

He collected one tackle in the 2013 spring game after an interception. This spring, he had two catches for 17 yards, with a long of 9, for the White team, for which he was a starting tight end.

Small helped Cypress Woods High School to a 9-3 record in 2011 and was listed in VYPE's Top 75 Football Prospects in the northern Houston area at No. 38.

An all-district performer as a junior and senior who also earned All-Houston area honors as a senior, Small was named a "Rising Star" in 2010 by 5ATexasFootball.com at defensive end.

He also was on Cypress Woods’ 7-on-7 team, which reached the semifinals of the Cy Falls Tournament in 2011.

I'll be honest — from watching Small's film, I actually liked him better as a defensive end prospect. He might yet end up there, too, but I'm willing to wait and see what he offers at tight end in 2014. He should be the No. 2 tight end.
