Biography: Moved into the starting lineup last season after being Matt Stafford's backup the prior three years. Throwing totals included 55.9%/2584/24/15.
Positives: Poorly size signal caller with a nice feel for the position. Patient, remains poised in the pocket and buys time for receivers. Stands strong against the rush, displays a quick release, and gets the ball through the tight spots. Takes his chances downfield and knows where his receivers are on the field. Puts touch on throws when necessary, yet also displays an adequate intermediate range arm.
Negatives: Must improve his pass placement. Looks small behind center and lacks great pocket stature. Stares down the primary target and will throw the ball into coverage.
Analysis: Cox has limited playing experience on the college level, yet he did an admirable job last season when he stepped behind center on a full-time basis. He possesses solid quarterback intangibles, yet his size is a limiting factor, and as a result, Cox will be nothing more then a third signal caller at the next level.
