Broncos rookie CB Perrish Cox has impressed players and coaches, exceeding the expectations of a fifth-round draft pick. While the rookie primarily has seen time as the nickel back, Cox has had chances to play at both corner spots and has proven he is capable of contributing with the first team, as evidenced by his Week Two interception of Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck. While Denver still has hopes of re-signing Champ Bailey, Cox is proving to be a viable backup and gives the Broncos great secondary depth. Bailey has been particularly impressed by the rookie's ability to understand opposing offenses. In addition, Cox has been the Broncos' primary return man, although increased playing time on defense may lead to WR Eddie Royal becoming a bigger part of the return game. Cox's draft status was hurt by off-the-field issues. The 23-year-old was suspended by Oklahoma State because of a pair of curfew issues; and a poor 40-time at the NFL Scouting Combine didn't help, either.
