Round 2, Pick 64: Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky

The college quarterback has been a contributor at wide receiver and in the return game, leading the NFL in all-purpose yards in 2012 with 2,342.

He had a big year all-around in 2012, catching 80 passes for 954 yards and eight touchdowns, running the ball 10 times for 132 yards, averaging 9.4 yards per punt return with a touchdown and netting 25.4 yards per kickoff return.

Cobb didn’t take long to show what he was capable of, returning a kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown and later catching a 32-yard touchdown pass in his first NFL game against the New Orleans Saints in 2011.

Cobb was limited by injuries in 2013, however, playing in just six games and finishing with 31 receptions for 433 yards and four touchdowns. He had two catches for 51 yards in the Pack’s wild-card loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the playoffs. He sustained a fractured fibula in a game against the Baltimore Ravens in October and didn’t return until the regular-season finale at Chicago, making two catches—both for touchdowns—in the Packers’ division-clinching victory.

He’s been extremely productive when healthy and gives the Packers a legitimate home-run threat.

Cobb was ranked 47th by Scouts, Inc., in 2011, so getting him at No. 64 overall was a bit of a steal for general manager Ted Thompson.
