Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Qua Cox, CB, Jackson State University
Qua Cox is the best man to man cover corner in college football. I have been saying it all year. While many continue to sleep on Cox, the kid continues to shine. He might not have the fastest forty time, but the kid can cover. He went up against the best wide receivers in the SWAC and was able to go head to head. The Jackson State University football program went to the Championship and came up short in overtime. I expect Qua Cox to make a huge impact on an NFL team early in his career, especially in coverage.
