Overview:

Cockran is a nice prospect, he has good size for a 3-4 outside linebacker, he is a solid tackler, and a solid pass rusher. He put up good sack numbers at Minnesota. On he other site, he will not be playing defensive end, as he is too small, and he is not the fastest edge rusher. With that said, I expect Cockran to be a day 3 pick.
