Skinny: Cox is a versatile player with blazing speed, especially in the return game. He can stay stride for stride with just about any opponent he goes up against and is rarely, if ever, beaten downfield. He has a good nose for the ball, is extremely athletic, and can help his team on both offense and special teams. Cox currently holds the Big 12 and OSU record with four career kickoff returns for touchdowns. He was ranked third nationally with a 29.83 yards per kick return average. He also holds the OSU record with 2,155 career kickoff return yards and is the Big 12 record holder for kick returns for touchdowns in a season with two in 2008 (tied with four others). He is just 110 kickoff return yards shy of setting the Big 12 career record. Cox finished the 2008 season with 32 tackles, one for loss, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions. In 2007 he had 42 tackles, two interceptions, and eight pass breakups. He has the ability to play both man to man and zone as a cornerback. As a senior, he has 24 total tackles with one interception and an impressive 12 pass break-ups through the first nine games. The Poke as has 455 kick return yards on 19 returns averaging 23.9 yards a kick return. Cox has also returned eight punts for 78 yards.
Good skills if he stays out of trouble. Living in Denver, have seen him play some. He was cut when he was arrested but his play was pretty good before that. He'll return kicks and give us more on defense than Ginn did on offense.
