Fletcher Cox makes some noise

AP

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.

  1. He played in the SEC probably the best conference in the country.

    What he showed on Saturday is probably what he is going to show on Sunday. If you take him strictly on workout numbers you are asking for a pick that does not justify his place in the draft.

  2. I used to be very leery of the combine. The success of JPP makes me wonder that maybe the lower first is worth taking a risk on a workout warrior. Granted with a amount of caution.

  3. Just shows what is all over the SEC and doesn’t get noticed by most of the fans in other parts of the country. Point…Why the SEC is such a dominate conference.

  4. With the SEC’s expansion, some of you guys will be able to root for 14 teams next year.
