Featured Prospects

Selected by: Green Bay Packers
Round: 2
Pick (Overall): 32 (64)

Pick Analysis: Mike McCarthy's offense places a premium on pass catchers with excellent running skills. Cobb fits the mold as a dynamic playmaker, and his outstanding versatility as a multi-purpose weapon makes him a dangerous option in their three- and four-receiver sets. He could be a vital addition with the impending departure of James Jones.

Overview

Cobb's a 'tweener lacking the size to be a full-time back or the ball skills and deep speed of a pure receiver. However, he could still make plays as a scat back, sub-package slot receiver and as a returner. Plays his best in the biggest moments. Possesses solid vision, enough quickness to get the corner and gain yards after short passes but isn't a true home run threat. Could be an effective third down back with his short area speed and route-running but hands need to be more consistent and he has a ways to go in pass protection. Cobb is a late Day 2 prospect.


Strengths

Cobb possesses rare competitiveness and great intangibles. Not afraid of contact, going over the middle, or pass blocking. Good short area speed, can press the line and get to the perimeter. Good route-runner and can get open against zone. Versatile - high school quarterback who played running back, receiver, returned kicks, and in the Wildcat in college.

Weaknesses

Lacks bulk for a running back. Does not possesses great top-end speed and not overly elusive in the open field. Does not have the strength and power to carry the load or push the pile. Only possesses adequate overall ball skills as a receiver. Struggles to sustain his blocks.

Grade

7.8
