Packers WR Randall Cobb is hoping to develop into an all-around receiver.
“I don’t want to work on just being a slot receiver,” Cobb said. “I want to be a receiver, period. I want to be able to go outside, too. So one thing I’ve worked on this off-season, too, is my outside routes and trying to put that into my game so I’m not just labeled a ‘slot guy.’”
Not too long ago, Greg Jennings grew into such a a do-it-all receiver. In time, maybe Cobb follows a similar trajectory.
The story is mainly about the potential of taking Cobb off special team duties to save him, but it's worth noting he is striving to be a do-it-all receiver. Either way, Cobb is ranked 13th, right behind 12th-ranked teammate Jordy Nelson. In fact, James Jones also cracks our top-25 WRs, coming in at 24th. There are a lot of targets for QB Aaron Rodgers but we predict 83 catches and over 1,000 yards with 9 TDs for Cobb. Cobb's ADP is late-third round while Jordy's is early fifth. Since we predict very similar numbers for the two, it's something to keep in mind on draft day...
