Randall Cobb scouting report

Randall Cobb WR Kentucky
Ht: 5’10″

Wt: 191

An elite all-around athlete. Excellent speed and quickness. A true playmaker. Experienced lining up in the wild cat formation which Kentucky called the “Wild Cobb”. A smart player on and off the field. Praised by coaches for his leadership and work ethic. A converted quarterback – started four games at quarterback as a freshman. Experienced on special teams.
Slightly undersized, doesn’t have the ability to be a traditional No. 1 receiver. Missed time with a high-ankle sprain in 2008. Still learning how to play receiver; only three full years of experience at the position.
Had he played at a big time program, Cobb would be a household name. He is an elite playmaker and one of the most dangerous players in the nation with the ball in his hands. His versatility and experience in the “Wild Cobb” and on special teams should intriguge some teams, especially offensive coordinators who like to get creative. He isn’t quite an elite prospect, but could be an instant impact player. His ability to line up at different spots on the field and his playmaking ability after the catch makes him a matchup nightmare for defenses.
