Cocconi was born in Parma. He made his debut on 2 April 1950 in a 2–1 defeat against Cesena at the age of twenty. Three years later, as captain, he led the side to promotion to Serie B. His final game for the club was on 13 May 1962 in a 2–0 defeat at Messina. He was never relegated as a player and he finished his career in Serie B with 200 appearances and 2 goals.
