Unlike Previous Eagles D-Line Picks, Fletcher Cox Has Got The SizeBREAKING NEWS, Eagles Draft, News, NFLDraft Friday, April 27th, 2012
I just left the Nova Care Complex after meeting Fletcher Cox and unlike previous Eagles defensive line draft picks, Cox is a big guy. He’s not undersized like Michael Patterson, Jerome McDougle and Brandon Graham.
Cox looks like he’s a little over 6’4″ with long arms and legs. He’s currently weighing in at about 305, but will fill out and be even bigger in the near future. He’s probably already the biggest of the Birds starting defensive linemen.
I love the way Cox comes off the ball with that lean, like he’s a sprinter. If you check out his tape, every time he impacts an offensive blocker, that blocker gives ground. If he can do that on the NFL level, the Birds pass rush is going to be very hard to deal with.
Think about the Birds pass rush of Jason Babin, Trent Cole, Cullen Jenkins and Cox. You can’t double team all of them which is going to mean trouble for the opposing offensive line.
