2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Perrish Cox



Strengths:
  • Very good size and bulk for position
  • Highly productive
  • Extremely good ball skills
  • Quick, smooth feet
  • Nice speed; ability to recover
  • Comes clean out of backpedal
  • Good body control
  • Times jump balls well
  • Sets the edge in run support
  • Plays with good range
  • Talented enough to play on press man island
  • Very solid athlete
  • Nice upside
  • Good versatility as return specialist
  • Might be able to play safety





    Weaknesses:
  • Very raw prospect; poorly coached
  • High in backpedal
  • Hips a little stiff
  • Not much man coverage experience
  • Opens hips up too quickly
  • Might lack some instincts
  • Tends to lose focus
  • Tackles with poor technique
  • Needs to improve hand use in shedding blocks
  • Character concerns

    Summary: Cox is a very talented prospect, but he needs some coaching in the NFL and you can't always bank on improvement with prospects - it's a gamble. Cox profiles as more of a zone corner where his technique deficiencies will be masked. He was suspended for 2010 Cotton Bowl for violation of team rules. I am projecting Cox to go off the board in the top 70-80 picks. Cox is an intriguing talent whom some team might take a gamble on early in the second round.

    Player Comparison: Kelvin Hayden. Hayden is one of the better zone corners in the NFL, but he might have better instincts than Cox. Same height-weight-speed projection.
