Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Derek Cox was drafted in the 3rd round (#73 overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft. Prior to entering the NFL, Cox was a 4-year starter at William & Mary, where he was twice selected All-Colonial Athletic Association. Cox amassed 22 tackles through Week 11 of the current NFL season, but was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury late in November. In his first two years in the NFL, Cox tallied four interceptions per season. Prior to his injury in 2011, Cox had not picked off a single pass.
Sources have confirmed that Derek Cox is now represented by SportsTrust Advisors, which is the brainchild of Jimmy Sexton and Pat Dye, Jr., who merged their two respective companies, Athletic Resource Management (ARM) and ProFiles Sports, Inc. last year. However, Sexton recently left SportsTrust to join up with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), where he recently signed Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe, who is projected to be a first or second rounder in the 2012 NFL Draft. Pat Dye, Jr. continues to operate SportsTrust Advisors.
Cox was previously signed with David J. Sullivan of Kaufman & Canoles, P.C. (K+C Sports).
