Justin Cox turns heads at Combine with top-notch athleticism

first_imgIt’s been a turbulent four month for Justin Cox. It continued Monday at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.Like his 2014 season with Mississippi State, Cox started his day at the Combine strong with a 4.36 time in the 40-yard dash.Cox’s 40-time was the best of any safety that ran on Monday. He was second overall among defensive backs. The only player that ran faster than Cox was Michigan State’s Trae Waynes. Many consider him the best corner in the draft.Cox began impressing with his numbers in the broad jump. His leap of 10-feet-9-inches was the best of any safety and Mississippi State player.Benardrick McKinney flashes talent at NFL CombineHis vertical leap was tied for third-best among safeties at 38 inches. Kurtis Drummond of Michigan State had the best mark at 39.5 inches.Cox turned in the best time of 11.20 seconds in the 60-yard shuttle among safeties. His 4.07 was third best among safeties in the 20-yard shuttle.The three-cone drill was his worst performance. Cox turned in a time of 7.05 seconds in the three-cone drill, eighth best among safeties.Preston Smith made himself money at NFL CombineIt’s up to scouts to weigh the positives and negatives with Cox. He possesses the most athleticism of any safety in the draft. Yet, he has character issues resulting from an arrest involving domestic violence. On the field, he displayed poor technique in ball drills.FS Justin Cox had to re-do the pivot drill a couple times and didn’t make a very strong effort to high-point (or even catch) the football.— Dion Caputi (@nfldraftupdate) February 23, 2015 Miss St CB Justin Cox ran a great 40 but as Deion Sanders indicated, he looks uncoordinated in drills. Need more than straight line speed.— Joe Marino (@TheJoeMarino) February 23, 2015Cox wasn’t expected to be selected before the sixth round. His performance during the Combine made NFL organizations more likely to forget about his off-the-field issues.It’s very unlikely he’ll be able to participate in Mississippi State’s Pro Day on March 4. Cox doesn’t need a Pro Day either. His numbers are good. Testing again only opens him up for regression.Cox wanted a second chance. He appears to have one after the Combine.last_img read more

Manchester United have made transfer offers for two defenders: €65m and…

first_imgCorriere dello Sport have some big claims about Manchester United on Tuesday, but don’t make a song and dance about it. Manchester United making a €50m offer for an AC Milan player would surely be worth at least a mention on the Lombardy edition’s front page, but no, it’s tucked away in an article which gets a quarter of page 23.The Italian newspaper claim Manchester United have made an offer of €65m for Milan Škriniar. Such an amount has been placed ‘on the table’ at Inter Milan but it’s been rejected as not enough.There have been claims of the offer previously and it’s now being treated as fact.After that disappointment, Jose Mourinho has now turned his attention to AC Milan and his club are said to have made a €50m (€45m plus a further €5m in bonuses) offer for Alessio Romagnoli.That’s been rejected too by the Rossoneri, but the Red Devils aren’t giving up and feel the track isn’t dead.Leonardo Bonucci is also said to be an option, but Mourinho prefers Romagnoli because he’s only 23 years of age compared to the elder defender being 31.Jose Mourinho seems to be pin-balling between Serie A defenders, if the claims are correct.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Kokala: Titi seems to be from another planet, Gosho Todorov is…

first_imgThe last coach who led Levski to the championship title in 2009 – Emil Velev, gave an interview to his colleague Stefan Ralchev from “Bookmaker Ratings”. Kokala talks about the situation with the “blues”.Mr. Velev, passed the General Assembly of Levski on July 17. News was expected, but nothing fateful seemed to have happened? – Yes, there was no news, as some people seemed to expect. In fact, I was surprised by several things. I do not know why people from the previous Board of Directors were left and no other people were brought in who should be able to help at this time. I do not know what the idea of ​​all these shareholders was.Whatever happens in recent months, it all comes down to money! And at the moment there is no money in Levski …– The bad thing is that with each passing month the debts increase, not decrease. Even if the larger debts are rescheduled, one day they still have to return. There was talk of taking a loan to be repaid in 2 years ?! Madness. We do not need loans in this situation. Now the Levski community will show whether they love the club or not. Because we see that the beginning of the campaign with the subscription cards is weak – they buy a little. This is not good. Which means that either the Levski players have to some extent become a little depersonalized and tired, or they are about to become more active. I hope it is the second.It is on this issue today that Konstantin Papazov said the same thing that the campaign with the cards started catastrophically …– Titi Papazov is completely right that no one in Bulgaria understands him, and he understands himself very little. He is absolutely right here … After he says that he thinks one thing and the others think another. Maybe Titi is an alien. Apparently people don’t think the way he thinks. Either he is from another planet or people are from somewhere else. I don’t know what the right answer is.Nasko Sirakov said that there were sponsors who are no longer there.– This should be asked, this is the main question. Why did these sponsors withdraw, what happened. Obviously there were. In order for Nasko Sirakov and Konstantin Papazov to agree to this move – to take the shares, then they had someone behind them. When you know that you have to return over 4 million, and you do not have them, there can be no other way than to have someone you relied on. What has changed, I can not answer.However, coaches and players will demand penalties under contracts that have been terminated or are about to be terminated.– Everyone is waiting for the penalties, the equipment company – too. The contracts have been signed properly and no one can escape responsibility. Only Titi relies on his contacts that if he goes to talk to someone who has to take money from Levski, he will give up. Because when they see that it is Titi and they will not want their money. No one, especially foreigners, will release Levski’s advantage at such a moment just because it is Levski …Should Petar Hubchev make a discount?– In my opinion, it was a total mistake to remove Hubchev. We knew it was his capacity, but he had to finish the year, and maybe we would go to Europe, where some money would be generated. And we wasted this chance lightly. We were second-third, second-third and finally fourth. It was a disgrace.However, Georgi Todorov said that it is better that Levski in this state will not participate in Europe.– He says this because Sirakov said it before. When would Georgi Todorov have said it if Sirakov had not mentioned it ?! I have nothing against Gosho Todorov, we are friends, but why are you just crying like a widow for … only tears and crying, I have no players, I have players. Once after the match with Beroe you tell them that they are heroes, at the next match you tell them that they are dead! The big difference is that Petar Hubchev had discipline, his players had respect. Things dropped out after him. When you call them that, will they want to play for you after that ?! Everything was clear.However, agree that when you don’t have money, you don’t have many moves for another coach?– That’s right, this is Sirakov’s only chance, because there is no one else in the school with a Pro license, I’m not sure about Todor Simov. Otherwise, another coach must be hired who will want a team, conditions, players, and will want to be paid. And now it’s easy – without much subtraction, you move them out of school with Telkiyski and put them on the first team. Which smells a little amateurish to me. Why doesn’t Murray Stoilov want it ?! Because he has pretensions. He has been criticized for how many times he has refused Levski. No one has the right to criticize him. If they had sat down to talk to Nasko, to call him, because the years they had spent together were not forgotten, some agreement could have been reached. But as far as I know, there has been no such conversation.How will the team cope purely in terms of games, most foreigners are likely to leave, mostly Bulgarians remain, including many teenagers?– Bulgarian footballers must be relied on entirely. When you don’t have money for budget and selection, you shrink to the last hole in your belt and act only with people who want to play in Levski. You go to all the teams in which Levski has transferred players and you ask – do you want to play in Levski, do you want to? This is our money – do you agree or not? Here, I’ll give them a joker. To call Marian Ognyanov. I see the boy appearing on Facebook, there is no team at the moment, he is in Lom. He will come with the flight from Lom, through Vratsa, Mezdra, Botevgrad and arrive in Gerena.As it is asked, to try to bring back the Tsonev brothers, Steven Petkov is a good decision. To try to get back Antonio Vutov, Ivan Bandalovski – too. It’s okay that he ran away in time, but he’s a Levski player. He has nothing else to say. The management has set a salary ceiling, makes good bonuses for the players for ranking, for participation in Europe, for a place in the championship and that is, plus some minimum bonuses that can be paid.Why did this accumulation of debts not only the big ones over the years, but these 4-5 million from the last two or three months come about?– Because there is one person there – Pavel Kolev, who does not understand what it is about. Even after Vasil Bozhkov left, he had to call the foreigners and tell them – the tap is stopped, there will be no money. Do you want one or two salaries and leave? But there was no one to give him advice, there was no Sirakov or anyone more experienced. In fact, from these foreigners, you can only take money from Roberta and Paulinho, and for the Bulgarians from Stanislav Ivanov. For me, however, it would be a mistake to sell it now.Some people believe that with this available playing potential Levski cannot be a competitor of the leading four or five teams. However, Nasko Sirakov said that “they will not beat us like a drum.” What is your opinion?– It depends on the players and the people who train them. They need to be trained. And not just to attract them. You have to teach him every workout, what is required and what to do. As far as I know, but Georgi Todorov has stopped playing men’s football for many years. He was at Gerena in 2003/04, when Gocheto succeeded him, then Murray came. He then went to several amateur teams and returned twice briefly. But for at least 7-8 years he was not part of men’s football. And the man admits it. They force him to lead the first team a little. But once they decide it is – not bad. At this point, you can’t think of anything else.Is Nasko Sirakov right to ask for another distribution of the money from the Television rights?– For me he is right, because the most watched matches are of Levski and CSKA. Ludogorets, who should watch them !? Their matches are watched when they play with Levski and CSKA in Sofia. All of Bulgaria watches Levski and CSKA, as well as Botev and Lokomotiv Plovdiv.Ventseslav Stefanov often affects football people, recently constantly criticized Levski and Nasko Sirakov, who according to him is the head of a factory for straw hats …“It’s not good what he’s saying.” We all know each other in football, we are friends. As much as they love football, to take it out of their bank and help with 10 million. We will return them to them one day. Or he should give from his personal money …Titi, after receiving handkerchiefs from Georgiev: We are the poor owners! You are pathetic and I am defending Levski!“I’m not ashamed and take responsibility for the equipment”last_img read more
