The Cleveland Browns were among several NFL teams in attendance on Monday for one of the final pro day workouts before this week’s draft. The Browns took time out of the busy calendar to travel and watch LSU linebacker Jabril Cox go through his workout.
Cox missed LSU’s regular pro day due to a hamstring injury. The recovery time didn’t appear to slow him down much. Cox blazed a 4.54 40-yard dash with a very impressive 10-yard split. The off-ball LB did not do agility drills but did post impressive results in the vertical and broad jumps.
Cox is generally regarded as a Day 2 pick and has been linked to the Browns in several mock drafts. A transfer from North Dakota State, Cox is known for his quickness and his coverage skills. He shone during Senior Bowl practices playing in space and locking down targets in passing drills.
