Jabril Cox could be a force in the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense.

At six-foot-four and 235-pounds, LSU linebacker Jabril Cox would be a tone-setting difference-maker for the Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive unit. A monster of a man, Cox is a pure weapon on the defensive side of the ball and a player the Eagles would be lucky to land.

The Eagles have been in need of a game-changer in the middle of their defense ever since they lost Jordan Hicks to free-agency. Louisiana State’s game-wrecker gives them that as he’s the type of force the Eagles’ defense desperately needs.

This is a young man that’s fully capable of mastering every aspect of playing linebacker at football’s highest level. He has the pure speed to play in space and cover bigger receivers while also possessing the strength to shut down an opposing offense’s running game.

Cox is a missile with a helmet on when diagnosing a play, and he never attacks the ‘rat poison’. He’s always in the right place at the right time. The Philadelphia Eagles need a linebacker with Cox’s skill set, and if he is available in the third round, this would be a steal for the Birds.
