If they pick Cox, then they are admitting that Rivera and Hurney blew it with McClain last year. You don't draft a guy at the 65th pick in the draft and then redraft another the next year unless you have a situation like we did with Clausen. Even then Newton was the number 1 pick in the draft and had huge upside. Cox really doesn't. Now if we had a chance to draft a Suh which is the DT version of Newton, then you do it in a heartbeat. I can't see where Cox provides so much more than a guy we can get in the second round. It we want pass rush both Ingram and Coples bring more to the table by far. At least with Williams and Stewart they waiting 2 years.

Cox had 5 sacks last year and 4 of those were in 2 games. (South Carolina and Kentucky) and 1 against Wake Forest. The other 9 games he had none. Add that he had a total of 3 quarterback hurries and you see a guy who pressured or got to the quarterback a total of 8 times in 12 games. Hardly the terrific pass rusher people are making him out to be.

Funny that Coples had 7.5 sacks and he is considered lazy and unmotivated but Cox has 5 and he has a high motor and never quits.

When you look at all our choices you get the sense that there is not that much to choose from really. Ingram brings the most to the table and by many accounts will be gone when we pick at 9.

That was horrible DT draft. Luis Castillo was the next best one and he wasn't picked until 28. Only 3 were pick in the whole 1st round. There is no way you are comparing that the 2005 class to this one are you.

You can not base talent on where a player is picked. I randomly picked 2005 because it gives enough time to find players who turned out to be busts. Cody and Babineaux were both better than Johnson and Castillo but this isn't what the draft experts said before the draft.

It's looking more and more like Cox will be our pick. To be honest I'd be happy with Ingram, Coples or Cox at #9 and maybe Brockers if we trade down.

There's no way I'm watching 10 minutes of nothing but Cox on youtube. Just tell me one thing, is he stiff or fluid?

I would do all of the above to Ms. Dehar.

Premier edge rusher to help Johnson would be nice. Hardy is good but is he elite?

If we want a premier edge rusher then Cox would not be the guy at all.
