Scouting Report: Perrish Cox
Non-position specific categories
Defensive Back Specific Categories
Has a lot of experience, and has started as a kick/punt returner since his freshman year, and at corner his sophomore year. Good size and bulk for a corner. Above average at pretty much everything. Made a lot of big plays. Is able to play both LCB and RCB. Decent tackler. Fluid hips and has the ability to turn and run with most people. Good awareness. Great returner.
A little inconsistent. Didn’t have a great senior year. Looked lost at times. Gave up a few big plays. Could stand to be more aggressive. Never looked happy about having to help in run support, but he was good when he had to. Was arrested in 2009 for driving on a suspended license after he was stopped for speeding. Also suspended for the 2009 Cotton Bowl after he violated team curfew rules.
Will be able to contribute to a team in many ways early on. He seems to be underrated due to a less than stellar senior year, but the Oklahoma State pass rush wasn’t all that great either. Because he has all of the physical tools, he won’t fall far. Has the potential to be a good number 1 CB, and at worst will be a good nickle back. Has some relatively minor character concerns and is also a father to several children.
Cox began starting in the final 8 games of his sophomore season and has started ever since.
Awards and Honors
