    From Jay Glazer's Twitter - "Also, pick of kentucky wr randall cobb...The 1 guy every single coach and GM said is the single greatest kid to have in locker room in draft"

    And I've heard that Sherrod was a great guy, hard worker and 4.0 GPA in grad school.

    its a WR, chances are its going to be a year or 2 before we get a good idea if he can be an impact player so lets hope no snap judgments

    it may be a year till he is a consistent receiver for us (see starks) but he can make an impact as a returner that doesnt require knowing as much.

    Normally takes three years for a WR to shine. You're right about an instant impact as a returner though.

    I'm so happy we took Randall Cobb. This was a dream pick of mine coming into the draft. He can do it all. He played WR, RB, QB, and returner in college. He was good at everything and a menace in the open field. We are set with pass catchers for a long time. Ted Thompson is a genius.

    To top it off, I went to grade school in the 4th and 5th grade where Cobb grew up! He was a year or 2 younger than me but we went to the same school. My neighbor played on his midget football team.
    This is a VERY EXCITING day for me. Packers got a lot better by taking a plyer I went to school with.

    Oh yeah and screw the Lions taking all these good players in the draft [​IMG]

    In 2010, Cobb set the Southeastern Conference season record for all-purpose yards with 2,396, breaking the previous mark of 2,310 yards by Darren McFadden of Arkansas (2007)

    Percy Harvin, Dexter mcluster?? Lol a poor mans version of them maybe. A slow and small kick returner in the second round? Questionable but tt knows best

    He's not slow.

    He has average top-end speed, but he's explosive.

    And kick returner was one of our biggest needs. Has been for years, imo.

    Most in his size range have elite speed. second round is a bit of a stretch for an average speed returner no? No doubt we need a returner but I feel like that's the easiest spot to fill. But only time will tell I hope the kid works out. We have a dynasty brewing ppl. I just think we coulda done alot more than a returner in the second but I've learned my lesson doubting tt so I'll just be happy with it :)

    If I were to rate his speed in Madden it'd look like this:
    Speed: 91, Acceleration: 98

    Video gamers know what I'm talking about.
