This is an impressive class of defensive tackles. They showed up in a big way on Monday.
Mississippi State product Fletcher Cox ran “unofficial” forty times of 4.79 and 4.85 at the NFL Combine. His 10-yard split was 1.63, which is outrageous for a player at 298 pounds.
Cox also finished among the bench press leaders among his defensive linemen. Cox has been relatively under the radar in this draft process, but he could get taken a lot higher in the first round than originally anticipated.
