CB Cockrell’s full of leadership potential

Bills fourth round pick Ross Cockrell will be focused on mastering Buffalo’s defensive playbook first and foremost, but in a few years he could be a leader in Buffalo’s secondary.

Bills Director of Player Personnel Jim Monos saw a lot of progress through Cockrell’s years at Duke. A two-time captain Cockrell was a leader on and off the field. His head coach at Duke David Cutcliffe was often impressed with Cockrell’s assessment of their team performances after games and often let him address the team before he did.

Monos sees a mature young player in Cockrell.

“You could see it even at his pro day. Guys gravitate to him and he is the leader of that group,” said Monos.
