BIO: Primary backup the past two seasons, totaling 91/344/3 as a senior after career numbers of 126/671/7 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Straight-ahead, between-the-tackles runner with adequate power and strength. Sees the field, displays footwork in a small area and drives forward, picking up yardage off initial contact. Has a burst of speed and works runs. Recognizes blocking assignments and has improved his overall skill in the department.
NEGATIVES: Not an elusive ballcarrier who makes something out of nothing or avoids defenders. Loses a lot of momentum when he must change direction.
ANALYSIS: Sized well with adequate speed, Cox has seen limited playing time because of the talent in New Mexico. Needs a lot of repetition and must expand his overall running skills, yet should get looks for a practice squad.
