Overview:

Cole had an amazing career at Missouri State, playing in 46 career games, where he had 457 tackles, 40.5 for loss, and 5,0 sacks, proving to be a tackling machine. He has good size, he has good speed, he is a good pass rusher, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he is very experienced. He is also a sure fire tackler, he is good in coverage, he is a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He also always wraps up on tackle attempts, he did a great job of breaking up passes, and he put up good interception numbers at Missouri State, with 5. On the other hand, he is not known for getting many sacks, and he has issues with fast backs at times. With that said, I view Cole as a day 3 pick, likely in the 5th-6th round range.
