Dustin Fox School: Ohio State
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 191 40: 4.52 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who posted 28/0/3 in
nine games of an abbreviated senior campaign
when he was sidelined with an arm injury. All-
Conference selection as a junior after tallying 77/
3/9. Experienced at both cornerback and safety
and productive on special teams.
feisty defensive back with a good head for the
position. Alert, displays good ball awareness and
immediately locates the pass in the air. Leads
the defensive secondary, hard working and
takes on bigger opponents defending screen
passes. Positions himself to make a play on
the ball and does a nice job reading receivers'
Negatives: Quick out of his backpedal and
prefers to side shuffle down the field. Marginal
playing speed and struggles staying downfield
with opponents. Consistently playing catch-up.
Analysis: An instinctive prospect with solid size/
speed numbers and excellent intangibles, Fox
is coming off a disappointing senior campaign.
And though it was marred by injury, scouts still
wonder about his potential for the next level.
Previously displayed himself as a potential first-day
pick but now a late-round choice who will
fight to see action as a nickel back in the NFL.
