Cobb Stepped Up for Packers After Nelson's Injury
Cobb inherited the role of go-to option in the Packers offense after fellow wide receiver Jordy Nelson's season-ending knee injury in August. The former Kentucky Wildcat racked up 1,287 receiving yards and 12 touchdown catches last season, and his speed and ability to force defenders to miss in open space make him a scoring threat every time he touches the ball. He finished 2015 with 829 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
