Versatile Cobb shines at Kentucky pro day

Published on March 21, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

In a league that craves versatility, Randall Cobb is rising on draft boards thanks to his jack-of-all-trades skill set.

Cobb was one of 10 NFL hopefuls who worked out in front of representatives from 24 teams at Kentucky’s pro day on March 10. The workouts were held indoors on FieldTurf.

Standing at 5-foot-10 1/4 and 191 pounds at the combine, Cobb worked out with former NFL wideout and current Carolina Panthers offensive consultant Ricky Proehl, Cincinnati Bengals running back coach Jim Anderson, and New York Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn.

He’s had three private workouts with another scheduled for this week. The teams have asked Cobb not to reveal who they are.

Cobb kept all of the numbers from his impressive combine showing, and stuck with positional drills at Kentucky. With the ability to run the wildcat, line up at wide receiver, running back or as a special teams returner, Cobb is an elastic talent who may have punched his ticket to the second round next month.

Derrick Locke, like Cobb, kept all of his Lucas Oil Field combine numbers and went with positional workouts at pro day. The running back was also worked out by Anderson and Lynn, and participated in one of the private workouts with Cobb.

Quarterback Mike Hartline (6-5, 219) provided a complete workout at the pro day. The brother of Miami Dolphins wideout Brian Hartline, Mike had 40 times of 4.99 and 4.93, a 27 1/2-inch vertical, 9-8 broad jump, 4.41 short shuttle, 6.92 three-cone drill. Hartline also was involved in one of the private workouts with Cobb and Locke.

A player who helped himself at pro day was Chris Matthews, a wide receiver who put himself at the free agent level with a strong workout. Matthews (6-4 7/8, 218) had 40 times of 4.57 and 4.58, a 33 1/2-inch vertical, 9-10 broad jump, 4.29 short shuttle, and a 6.90 three-cone drill.
