Overview:

Cox had a very productive career at Michigan State, where he had 166 tackles, 5.5 for loss, 4 interceptions, and 18 pass breakups. He has good size, he has good speed, he is a good cover cornerback, along with being a sure fire tackler, and he can lineup both on the slot receiver, and on the outside receiver. He is not known as a ball hawk, but other than that, Cox is a solid prospect. With that said, I view Cox as a late day 2, to early day 3 pick.
