Cox was generally considered one of the top talents available going into Day 3; someone many expected to be drafted on Friday night. After getting criticized for reaching on talent with some of their 3rd-round pick, Dallas shouldn't hear any of that with this pick.
And we are underway with another defender: former LSU linebacker Jabril Cox to Cowboys at No. 115 overall. Team had a Day 2 grade on him. Cox will be busy as rookie on special teams. https://t.co/oJ0DW20ep5
This pick gives Dallas their sixth defensive player in this draft; a clean sweep so far on that side of the ball. Cox is also the second linebacker drafted after Penn State's Micah Parsons joined the Cowboys on Thursday night.
Welcome to the Cowboys, Jabril Cox!
