Adopt-a-Bronco:
TBD
Default Round 5 Pick - Perrish Cox -CB- OK State

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma_n9K3stn8






Strengths:
Terrific natural athleticism --- Ideal height and bulk --- Excellent speed with a burst to close and recover --- Quick and agile with nice change of direction --- Good leaping ability --- Soft hands and outstanding ball skills --- Superb instincts and awareness --- Smooth with fluid hips to transition --- Excels in both man and zone coverage --- Physical at the line --- Will tackle and support the run --- Elusive with great vision --- Is very confident with a short memory --- Also a prolific kick/punt returner.

Weaknesses:
Has some character issues --- Can be too aggressive at times and will gamble --- Footwork leaves something to be desired --- Tends to get tall in his backpedal --- Is not a real reliable tackler --- Takes some bad angles --- Short arms and small hands --- Durability might be a concern.

Notes:
Was a three-year starter for the Cowboys --- Named 1st Team All-Big 12 in 2009 --- Averaged 24.0 yards with 4 touchdowns (the Big 12 record) on 117 kick returns and also averaged 11.6 yards with 2 touchdowns on 60 punt returns during his college career --- Missed two games with an injury as a freshman and also dealt with injuries as a senior --- Already has three children --- Arrested in the Fall of '09 on charges of driving with a suspended license --- Was suspended for the Cowboy's Cotton Bowl appearance as a senior after missing a curfew, which ended his college career --- Supremely talented and possesses first round physical tools but isn't technically sound and intangibles are shaky --- Must keep his head on straight and get coached up a bit but has the ability to be a starter as well as a great return man in the NFL.

137 -- Broncos -- CB Perrish Cox

His stock has been falling since he was suspended for the Cotton Bowl. He has first-round talent, and I gave him a third-round grade due to his off-field issues. Josh McDaniels feels like this is the time to take a chance on a very talented kid. He's much better in press coverage than he is in off-man. He brings special teams value to any team.

Round 5 and lower is where you want to take a chance on talented character issue guys not the first round. Thanks for the great draft Josh.

Not sure what they have in McKinley, but they needed a returner to take some heat off Royal.

Not a bad pick, even for a corner that a ran a 4.5 with character concerns. We need a real return guy. Hopefully Cox can be it.

Good value pick. And not a midget to contend with the NFLs bigger recievers.

Character issues are overblown. And the monastery that McD is piecing together with Tebow as the pastor is gonna need some unclean heathens to convert.

Another 5 years or so and he can join the Travis Henry, Antonio Cromartie club of having a full starting lineup with almost as many different women.

Averaged nearly 30 yards per KOR his junior season.

Doesn't hurt to go up against Dez Bryant in practice either.

With the 6th pick, I hope they take a chance on Brandon James or Trindon Holliday, although real small, some real return guys who are lightning fast in the Sproles mold.

Mayock said it the best and I feel the same. Guy is easily a 1st/2nd round talent. He's the press style CB that I love but he can play off and read and react with the best of them.

Excellent bump off the line and underrated athleticism for a big guy.

His ST's ability adds plus value to him as a prospect.

His character issues need to be inspected and people need to check him upon entering Dove Valley. Another high value guy that has the potential to shine down the road, like Eric Decker.

We might have drafted this guy for depth on special teams and returning, but he looks like he'll be competing for some real playing time in the nickel back spot.

Just stepping out on a limb, I can see this guy as the successor to Champ Bailey. He has that type of ability. Now can we get his brain to work the same way............

Hmmm, strange pick to be honest.

Arrested, suspended for a bowl game and not invited to his own pro day, three kids already.

Guy is a world class a-hole by the look of things, in all honesty.

Still, I guess he'll help on ST and is more corner depth. It's only a 5th round pick, so I guess we don't have much invested in him and can just cut him lose if he doesn't get his **** together.
