Quick Take: Cotton played tackle for the majority of his high school career, including the entirety of his senior season, but his projection at the next level is on the interior so he kicked inside during the week leading up to the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game earlier this month. After a slow start, he became the dominant force most have come to expect during the week and it carried over into the game. Cotton registered pancake-after-pancake, executed blocks on the run and at the second level well and held his own in pass protection against fellow SEC-bound talents. BamaMag was on hand and has several examples of the dominant performance below.
