  • Perrish Cox Steal in the 5th RD



    Cox possesses the skills necessary to be a second cornerback on the NFL level as well as offering the skills necessary to impact any team as a return specialist. He offers a large degree of upside and could be starting by the end of his rookie season if he keeps his focus on the field.

    Projection: 2nd Rd.

    I think he has potential to take over for Champ when he decides to move to S.

        Off the field issues. Got suspended for the bowl game for missing curfew twice and some other dumb stuff. Apparently McDaniels thinks he has his head on straight now.

        NFLN talked about how they thought he was the steal of the draft. I think if we can keep him straight he can become a really good player for us.

            talent wise I think he was the 5-6 best CB in the draft. 5th round is a great time to take the risk.

            My only question is how I will feel IF he moves up the depth chart above Smith... I have to admit it will be tough to not watch the careers of Alphonso Smith and Earl Thomas and think about what could have been.

              Lets see we have a cb who just came off his rookie season, very very few cbs are dominant as a rookie. Whos to say thomas doesnt bust though? Im not saying hes a bad prospect but tons of "Cant miss" guys bust.

                I am not giving up on Alphonso Smith. Our eggs, at CB, are in his basket. I want him to do well, but most young rookies work their way onto the field and participate more and more through the season. Smith did the opposite. He worked his way off the field. I hope he can adjust to the speed and quickness of the game but it doesn't look good so far. We spent a first round pick on him, he needs a chance, but he better show more potential than he has so far. I hated the trade last year when we did it and I will be sick if Smith is stuck as our 4-5 CB this year. He should be working his way into the starting lineup this year; and sometime pretty soon.

                Thomas might bust.... but who would you rather have on our team? Pretty easy question to answer for me.

                I am just grateful McDaniels didn't dump a #1 next year for a 2nd rounder this year. I was scared he would go that direction again.

                  Cox was considered the steal of the draft. Smith has better hands and can handle the possession receivers I think Cox can handle the speed receivers but he isnt the shutdown corner that Champ was.

                  Brandon Ghee I think was the best shutdown corner in the draft. He was the only one to shutdown Demaryius and he was a 3rd rounder.

                  Curtis Brown next year is the best shutdown corner in the draft.

                    I disagree with you, I think the best shutdown corner in the draft is hands down Patrick Peterson from LSU. He is considered the best cornerback in the country bar none. He reminds of a mix of Darrelle Revis and Champ Bailey but maybe even faster.

                      I honestly dont know if he will be entering the draft next year so I cant say he is. He may pull a Jake Locker or DeAndre McDaniel and stay another year.

                        Great Overall Draft

                        One thing that I like to do after every draft is to look at a few of the "expert" draft magazines that are released before the draft. These give detailed rankings and pros and cons for each position in the draft. I looked at about 5 different magazines from different publications. Many of them had Demaryus Thomas as the 2nd rated WR in the draft with the most potential. He was compared favorably to fellow GT WR Calvin Johnson and Vincent Jackson. The Sporting News even had him rated as the #1 WR over Dez Bryant.

                        Tim Tebow was rated anywhere from the 3rd best QB to the 8th best and opinion were all over the board as usual. Some compared him favorably to Donovan McNabb and a bigger, more physical Michael Vick. Other magazines had him more of an H-Back or TE in the pros. They all agreed that defenses will have to account for him and gameplan, especially in the red zone, and that he would be a good player with the right situation and coaching.

                        Zane Beatles was rated in the top 5 of most OG listings and almost all of the reports said he was a very intelligent blocker at reading angles and pursuits. JD Walton was rated as the 2nd or 3rd best C prospect behind Pouncey. Reports said he is a fierce competitor with a nasty streak and good initial punch at the line. All reports said that he was an immediate starter in the NFL.

                        One of the most highly regarded players that we drafted was, indeed, Parrish Cox. He was rated as high as the #2 CB in the draft and was compared to Quentin Jammer. Most of the mock drafts had him going in the 2nd round while some even projected him as a 1st rounder. If he can mature and develop under our coaching staff he has a chance to be a special player. He led the nation last year in passes defenced but was suspended for staying out passed curfew on two occasions.

                        Syd'Quan Thompson was also highly regarded and one scout was quoted saying that if he was 6 ft rather than 5'9" then he would be a top 10 pick overall. He has elite ball skills and instincts for the position.

                        Overall, I think that we had a very good draft and got some nice players in later rounds. My only concern was the lack of picks for the front seven in our 3-4. This shows me that McD and company must have faith in Chris Baker to develop and add some youth to the D-Line. He has the tools to develop into a solid NT with time.

                          - Both Lombardi and Wyche both think that Perrish Cox is the sleeper pick of the draft. I tend to agree with McD on this one I think it was just a stupid decision in college rather something wrong with the kids character

                              I agree free safeties need to be fast being able to blitz and close in on the receiver after playing zone. Sometimes they help jam the receiver, but like the Strong safeties they are involved in the blitz and in stopping the run. Its a completely different position then corner.

                              Safeties are kinda between a corner and a LB sometimes fast corners can step down to safety and if they were cover corners its not much of a difference and the same goes for Safeties going to ILB after gaining some weight and are good tacklers. Those positions are much easier to be tweeners then Corner safeties.
