Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BRYAN COX JR.: Florida, 6027 265 4.89. Fifth-year senior who started 28 of 44 games, from Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Long and strong frame with potential to add more good weight. Heavy, physical hands. Can keep himself low to the ground off the snap. Consistently does a nice job of getting his hands on first. Technically sound. Effective spin move back inside. Good body control in space and in a phone booth. Agile lower half. Ongoing motor. Hesitant and slow to react. Doesn’t bring a lot of force on contact. Needs more core strength. Loses track of hands and leverage the further out in space he gets. Won’t set the edge, won’t scare anyone with initial burst. Has been injured off and on since high school. Son of former Pro Bowl linebacker, and former Falcons’ defensive line coach, Bryan Cox. Solid all-around edge player who has fought more than his fair share of injuries. Lacks jump-off-the-screen traits and tools, but it’s hard to ignore him when things are clicking. He has an upside that of a rotational defensive end. Shrine Game notes: A chip off the ole man in regards to his high motor competitiveness (one of our scouts scouted his dad at Western Illinois). Relentless in pursuit. Good use of hands to disengage and get to the ball. Quick and balanced spin move to get around blocker. Constantly pressures the quarterback off the edge. First step quickness. Injured part of Florida’s season. Had a big week wrapping up ball carriers and quarterbacks. 2016 stats: 19 T, 2.5 TFL, .5 sack, 1 FF. OSR:38/40. Fifth/sixth round. (A-33 3/4, H-9 1/2, BP-16, 10-1.73).
