BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter used almost exclusively as a lead blocker. Carried the ball six times for 48 yards as a senior and added 12 receptions.

POSITIVES: Stocky, aggressive blocking fullback who has a spot at the next level. Tough as nails, plays with a nasty attitude, and always looking to hit defenders. Breaks down well, displays good vision, and lays shoulders into defenders or gets chips on them. Easily removes linebackers from the action, turns defensive linemen from the play, and anchors in pass protection.

NEGATIVES: Stiff and lacks agility, which hurts his ability to finish blocks. Straight-line fullback who cannot turn the corner.

ANALYSIS: Cox is a one-dimensional fullback who stands out as a lead blocker. He may fall out of the draft because of his lack of offensive skill, yet he can definitely find a roster spot at the next level as a lead blocker in a power-running offense.
