Draft Scout Ross Cockrell News
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Bills picks: Round 4/109 -- Ross Cockrell, DB, 6-0, 190, Duke...He started 49 games at Duke, recording 233 tackles, 12 interceptions and 42 pass breakups. Was a durable player who played 3,536 snaps in his college career. A two-time first team All-ACC, he graduated a year ago with a degree in political science. His father played at Columbia, so he's probably going to be the smartest guy in the room when he arrives. He figures to contribute to special teams, and perhaps battle for a backup position in the secondary. - The Sports Xchange
12/13/13 - 2013 ALL-ACC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): CB-Ross Cockrell, Sr.-R, Duke (21)...Cockrell, a 6-0, 185-pound native of Waxhaw, N.C., received his second straight All-ACC first team nod. This season he has amassed a team-leading 12 pass breakups with three interceptions, 40 tackles, 2.0 tackles for loss, 1.0 sack and a forced fumble on the way to breaking Duke’s all-time passes defended and pass breakup records. His third interception of the season came in a 28-21 win at Wake Forest and ended the Demon Deacons’ final drive with Duke leading by one touchdown. - Duke football
12/05/13 - Duke's Cutcliffe named Walter Camp Coach of the Year...On Saturday Duke will find itself in a tough position as it enters the ACC Championship Game as a four touchdown underdog to No. 1 Florida State, but it will go into that game knowing it has the Walter Camp Coach of the Year on its sideline. That's right, it was announced on Thursday that Cutcliffe had won the award that is voted on by the head coaches and sports information directors of the 125 schools on the FBS level. And it has to be a good feeling to be named the Coach of the Year by your peers.
And Cutcliffe certainly deserves the recognition. As we said at the beginning of the post, Duke is playing in the ACC Championship Game this weekend, and this is a blog about college football remember. Duke hasn't won the ACC since 1989, and even then it was only a co-champion. In other words, this doesn't happen very often, so when Duke finishes the regular season with a 10-2 record and a chance to go to a BCS bowl, people take notice. Cutcliff is the first Duke coach to ever win the award, and the first ACC coach to win it since Maryland's Ralph Friedgen in 2001. Last year's winner was Notre Dame's Brian Kelly. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com

09/12/13 - Scouting the Duke pass defense: The defensive backs will have to be on full alert against Georgia Tech so they don't become too consumed in run support and get beat for big plays. CB Ross Cockrell and S Dwayne Norman offer some experience, yet the presence of S Jeremy Cash, who sat out last year as a transfer from Ohio State, might be the biggest newcomer to the secondary. QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's not tough to grasp, it's just tough to get adjusted to. We've got to make them go backward." -- CB Ross Cockrell on facing Georgia Tech's triple-option offense. Duke has lost the last nine meetings. - The Sports Xchange
