Overview:

Randall Cobb is a very versatile athlete that can contribute in many different ways. He’s played WR, RB and QB at Kentucky and is dangerous in the Wildcat. He best projects to a slot WR similar to Percy Harvin. Cobb is still inconsistent though and he doesn’t look like he will be the same superstar in the NFL. He drops some passes and is a poor route runner. He’s also not very physical going up to get the football. If he gets a lot of looks, like the Vikings do with Harvin, he should have similar success but he won’t be a bona fide slot receiver in the NFL.
