Fletcher Cox

School: Mississippi State
Position: DT
Bio: Two-year starter awarded All-American and all-conference honors last season. Finished his junior year with 56 tackles/14.5 tackles for loss/5 sacks after posting 9/6.5/2.5 as a sophomore.
Positive: Developing defensive lineman with a large upside. Athletic player who explodes off the snap with a terrific first step, displaying outstanding movement skills and the ability to quickly change direction. Works his hands throughout the play, moves well laterally and gets outside the box to make plays in pursuit. Has a tall, linear build, breaks down well and is agile. Slides off blocks to get to the ballcarrier, flashes power in his lower body and rarely gets knocked off his feet. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself, fluid if asked to twist or stunt and displays a burst of closing speed. Possesses good size and offers growth potential.
Negative: Easily knocked from his angle of attack or is out-positioned from plays. Must add bulk to his frame and improve his playing strength.
Analysis: Cox watched his game take off last season and is now positioned to be a top-20 choice in April's draft. His athleticism and versatility are intriguing, as Cox has the potential to line up at several different spots on the defensive line. Cox will only improve as he physically matures, and he has the potential to develop into one of the best defenders from this draft in time.
