    Fletcher Cox DT Mississippi State #94
    Ht: 6’4″
    Wt: 295
    Prototypical size and athleticism for a penetrating three-technique tackle. Quick off the snap. Does a nice job keeping his eyes in the backfield and making adjustments. Has the speed to make plays in pursuit. Plays with a motor that never quits. Extremely active hands, and keeps his legs driving at all times. Has experience lining up at various spots on the line; has played tackle in a 4-3, and also end in 3-4 sets. Used at nose tackle on occasion. Also has some experience dropping into zone coverage. Dominant on special teams; three career blocked kicks. Three year starter.

    Tends to be overaggressive at times; somewhat one-dimensional as a pass rusher, leaving him susceptible at the point of attack against the run. Does not have an array of pass rush moves; relies almost exclusively on the bull rush. Suspended for one game in 2011 for violating team rules.

    It’s tough to find players with Cox’s size and athleticism, which will make him a highly sought after prospect. He lacks the strength and discipline to be consistently effective against the run, but in today’s world of pass-first offenses, more and more teams are allowing at least one of their defensive tackles to almost exclusively pin their ears back and get after the quarterback on every snap. In a 4-3 defense, Cox could fill a role similar to Ndamukong Suh’s in Detroit. He also has the physical tools necessary to shift outside to end in a 3-4 scheme.
