    3/17 *Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State, 6-4, 298, 1
    Cox is naturally big, plays bigger and is expected to grow even more in size and ability. A third-year junior, Cox was the only player from Mississippi State to be named All-SEC first team after he collected 56 tackles and five sacks last season. He works hard from kickoff until the final whistle, setting a pace for teammates and wearing down opponents. He showed very good explosion in combine testing. The light-footed Cox played both defense end and defensive tackle and his versatility will be an asset in the NFL, where scouts think he is similar to San Diego's Corey Liuget, an 18th overall pick out of Illinois last year. Cox was one of five Bulldogs suspended for the 2011 opener against Memphis for breaking team rules, but he returned to the field with vengeance and earned praise from his coaches.


    Edit : If Decastro is not there at 14, I wouldn't mind if we grabbed Cox there instead :D
