UDFA. Signed by the Jaguars as a UDFA in May but was released in August. Brother of Reggie Cobb, former Buccaneers RB. He has a lot of physical talent, but it will be hard for him to make a roster immediately. Best bet is a practice squad somewhere.
Positives: His listed height and bulk are both good for the position. For his size, he runs with above-average speed, burst, and acceleration. After contact, he shows pretty good balance and a good second effort. Runs with above-average power and good body lean, and isn’t easy to arm tackle. Moves fairly well laterally on running plays and kick returns and has a nice jump cut. Adequate hands and can extend for passes away from his frame. Is an above-average and physical run blocker who maintains his blocks downfield. Keeps squared while making moves, letting him change directions with good balance and consistently move forward. Fairly agile getting through traffic at the line.
Negatives: Mostly played the B-back position in a triple-option system in college – a position that doesn’t really translate perfectly to an NFL running back. Though he has pretty good cutback ability, he is not very elusive in the open field. Not much of a route runner and was really more of a checkdown receiver. Injured ankle in October 2013 and missed the rest of the season, so it’s unclear how the injury may have affected him.
Projection: He’s not someone to draft in fantasy, but he may be someone to keep an eye on.
