I like him a lot but we'll have to see how fast he is. I want a CB who can really cover those smaller quicker guys like DeSean Jackson, Breaston, Knox, etc. He would probably match up well against guys like Fitz and Boldin though, and he's gone up against a guy like Dez Bryant in practice a lot. What I really want is a ballhawking S who can cover like a Earl Thomas or Eric Berry in the 1st
Quote: --Oklahoma State CB Perrish Cox said the 49ers were one of the teams with which he has interviewed at the combine. Cox experienced the advantage of playing against teammate WR Dez Bryant in practice. "Oh man, it was spectacular, man," Cox said. "I really can't explain it. It's tough. He is the best receiver I ever picked on, since I've been in college football, hands down, I can actually say that. It's tough. Bring a crowd. Hyper excitement. All of the above. He gave me a bad attitude. He gave me an attitude, when I go in on Saturday, what are you going to do differently that I stick on every day."
I think he would be a fine 2nd round pick at this point.
Good return skills, good size for a corner. Pretty much exactly what we need and Scotty Mac likes. Also he showed well at the Senior Bowl and we all know about our history of drafting guys who participated in that.

I agree, however Scotty Mac hasn't drafted a corner higher than the 5th round I believe? Correct me if I'm wrong. And I do recall him speaking out a few years ago about preferring to acquire veteran corners and his track record has proven that anyhow (Walt Harris, Clements, Bly).
Otherwise Cox is pretty much a perfect fit for us.
I think he'd be an excellent value pick in 2nd rd...multiple skills + great size, cover CB, very good KR skills. I've been on his bandwagon for awhile now...remember, he practiced every day against the best WR in college, Dez Bryant.
