Default Re: BL Pre-Combine Mock Draft 2012

Just a quick follow-up before COX weighs in, which will be interesting in itself because you guys do realize that Jay Ratliff, three Pro-Bowler (two in Wade Phillips 3-4) is a NT. Same size, 6-4 287 (check Combine weigh-in) also out of SEC (Auburn). Big difference to me is only that Fletcher Cox is coming out as underclassman where Ratliff played DT only one year, his senior season recording 37 tackles, 10 TFL & one sack. Fletcher on other hand as a Junior mind you had 56 tackles, 14.5 TFL & 5 sacks.

So basically what you have here is a player who fits a 3-4 scheme & who could play every single DL position for Wade. This is a key reason for his selection, Fletcher Cox gives Wade defense plus value, possibly as a starting NT & softens the blow if unable to resign Mario Williams.
