Cox Third Draft Pick to Sign

Posted Jun 9, 2010

Perrish Cox signed with the team on Wednesday. The fifth-round selection joins Jammie Kirlew and Syd'Quan Thompson as the 2010 NFL Draft picks who have signed.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Perrish Cox joined Jammie Kirlew and Syd'Quan Thompson Wednesday as the third of the team's nine 2010 NFL Draft selections to sign with the team.

The fifth-round pick ("He's a player that is certainly more talented than where he was drafted -- there's no question about that," Head Coach Josh McDaniels said.) has flashed some of his playmaking potential already through OTAs, picking off a few passes and deflecting several more.

At Oklahoma State, Cox started 25 consecutive games at cornerback to close his career. He amassed 36 pass breakups -- including an NCAA-best 19 as a senior -- along with 10 interceptions, 134 tackles, two tackles for loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one blocked kick. As a senior, when he led the nation in pass breakups, Cox earned All-Big 12 first-team honors and was a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation's top defensive back.

But his contributitions in the return game are what helped him stand out even further.

"He's not easy to tackle, he's got good quickness and great vision," McDaniels said of Cox's college career. "There's going to be some growing for him, no question, but he's flashed some really big-time plays."

Cox, who has taken his turn handling punt and kick return duties during OTAs, holds Oklahoma State and Big 12 Conference career records with 117 kickoff returns for 2,804 kickoff return yards. He opened the season as a freshman by returning a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, and didn't slow down for the rest of his career, ultimately returning four kickoffs -- a school record -- and two punts for scores.

Those sort of statistics earned him first-team All-America honors as a return specialist in 2008. His average of 29.8 yards per kick return led the Big 12 and ranked third in the nation that season.

When he was drafted, the cornerback made it known that he plans to bring physicality and excitement to the team.

"Gotta wait and see -- I can show you better than I can tell you," he smiled.
