Biography: Full-time starter the past two seasons after seeing limited action with the first team as a freshman. All-Conference selection after his sophomore and junior campaigns and named an All-American in 2010. Receiving totals last season included 84/1017/7 when he also added 424 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. Averaged 7.8 yards on 28 punt returns with additional score as well as 23.7 yards on 41 kick returns. Sophomore totals included 39/447/4 receiving and 573/10 rushing. Averaged 12.8 yards on 44 punt returns with another score that season.
Positives: "Versatile skill player who positively affects the offense in a variety of ways. Shows terrific quickness, has a burst of speed, and is dynamic handling the ball. Fluid receiver who comes back to the pass out of breaks, easily adjusts to the errant throw, and possesses both soft and strong hands. Quickly transitions from making the catch to running after the reception, shows a burst of speed, and has the ability to create yardage in the open field. Quick footed and elusive, displays terrific explosiveness, and plays with intelligence. Effective running reverses, alters the momentum of games as a return specialist, and occasionally lined up behind center in wildcat formations."
Negatives: Not a true deep threat. Really cannot run to the long pass.
Analysis: Cobb has been tremendously productive on the college level since stepping onto the field as a freshman for Kentucky. He's a multipurpose offensive threat with the skills to be a second receiver and return man on the NFL level.
