Cox a top 5 pick now?
According to NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora, some teams are now considering a trade up to No. 5 to jump ahead of the Rams for fast-rising DT Fletcher Cox.
Defensive tackles annually go higher in the actual drafts than the mocks. In that sense, Cox's fast rise should surprise no one. NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell calls Cox the best overall defensive lineman in the draft, with the "natural athleticism and body flexibility to develop into a quality pass rusher." The question is whether interested teams can meet the compensation demands of the Vikings, Browns, or Bucs.
