RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Cox looked poised to break out onto the scene as a premiere corner after a brilliant Monday night performance against Joe Flacco and the Ravens, but saw his season cut short due to injuries. The little-known corner out of William & Mary has elevated his game over the past two seasons and has been a huge part of the team's resurgence in the secondary. If Cox is able to stay healthy in 2012, expect his name to begin floating around as a top corner IDP option.

2010

Cox grabbed four interceptions in his 2009 rookie year, and could be a player on the verge for 2010. With Rashean Mathis' skills in serious decline, Cox may quickly become the linchpin of the Jags' defensive backfield, especially if he improves his ballhawking skills.
