One week into his pro career, Green Bay wide receiver Randall Cobb has dazzled. The speed, the hands, the athleticism. The Packers' second-round pick has been a pay-per-view attraction from Day 1.
On a loaded receiving corps, Cobb could become an X-and-O nightmare, a wild card on a Super Bowl offense.
This week, Cobb lined up at all three receiver spots in practice. He caught several passes - some across the middle, some downfield. On one 20-yard comeback route, quarterback Aaron Rodgers gunned a pass to him as soon he turned.
New wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett tapped the brakes while detailing Cobb's potential impact. Still, the talents Bennett sees in Green Bay's current crop of receivers, he noticed instantly in Cobb.
As part of Green Bay's dynamic offense, Cobb is worth a look if he can find some playing time. Unfortunately, with Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and James Jones all being relatively young players, Cobb may not have a major role until veteran Donald Driver fades away.
