Grading System
CUROME COX
Position: CB
Class: Sr
School: Maryland
Conference: ACC
Ht., Wt.: 6'0½, 200
40 Time: 4.57
Grade: 3.17

BIO: Four-year starter who totaled 40/2/11 as a senior after 58/3/11 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Competitive cornerback with a good feel for coverage. Very aware, keeps the action in front of him and displays a closing burst of speed. Smooth transitioning off the line and quickly breaks on the pass. Reads the quarterback, times defenses well and displays good hands going for the pick. Helps out supporting running plays or screens.

NEGATIVES: Seems a bit tight and has difficulty tracking the deep ball. Lacks the flat-out playing speed and ability to stay downfield with fast receivers. Not strong at the point or a sure-handed tackler.

ANALYSIS: Cox has been a consistent cornerback for the Terrapins and though not the greatest athlete, a solid zone coverage corner. Could fill the role as a team's eight defensive back.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
