Broncos Take Perrish Cox in 5th Round

April 24, 2010

The Denver Broncos with the #137th pick in the NFL Draft, have chosen Cornerback Perrish Cox of Oklahoma State in round five.

This pick makes sense from a number of aspects: Number 1, Champ Bailey and André Goodman are getting long in the tooth and are both over 30 years old. The Broncos need to find an eventual successor for the two of them. The other reason this makes sense is because Cox is an excellent return man and the Broncos do not want Royal to play return man at all, and focus on receiver.

Cox was expected to be drafted in the 2nd to 3rd round but because of his footwork and the fact that he isn’t a reliable tackler, made him drop. The one surprising element of this pick, is he is the first player the Broncos have drafted this year of questionable character.
