BIO: Junior college transfer who led the team in rushing as a senior with 96/728/4, averaging 7.6 yards per carry. Also added seven receptions. Junior totals included a 27.25 average on 28 kick returns with three scores.

POSITIVES: Game-breaking running back with home-run-hitting speed. Plays much faster than his 40 time, can immediately switch it on and possesses good first step quickness. Displays the ability to immediately get through a small amount of open field then beats defenders in a foot race. Keeps his feet moving up the field, works runs and drives to pick up as much yardage as possible.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top running vision and the ability to quickly cut back against the grain. Must improve his route running as a receiver out of the backfield.

ANALYSIS: A straight-ahead runner who improved his skill as the season progressed last year, Cobb is an explosive skill player for the next level. Does not have the size to be an every-down ballcarrier, yet if he improves his pass-catching skills he will be given a look as a third-down back. Solid developmental prospect worth the investment of a late-round choice.
