This year, Cox rose in the rankings. Last year, Cox was ranked 49, this year he rose 11 spots to 38.
Cox finished last season with 27 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. His statistics do not tell the whole story and obviously the rest of the NFL agrees.
Many criticized Cox last season and said he was not playing up to his contract. He could have finished some more plays, but a player like Cox makes things a lot easier for the rest of the defensive linemen.
Cox is easily the best player on the Eagles defense and this ranking proves it. He is one of the top defensive linemen in the league, let alone one of the best players.
