Packers, Badgers rule NFL’s Top 100 players list

100. Randall Cobb

Last year: Not ranked

A breakout season in 2014 landed Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb the last spot on the Top 100 Players of 2015, which is still a major accomplishment given there are almost 1,700 players on active rosters each week in the NFL.

Cobb returned from a broken leg late in the 2013 season to score the touchdown that sent the Packers to the playoffs that season and he picked up where he left off entering the final year of his rookie deal last season.

Cobb finished with 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns—all career highs—while also gaining 37 yards on 11 rushing attempts as the Packers created some packages that had Cobb lined up in the backfield out of the shotgun formation next to quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Cobb went onto have a huge postseason, with 15 receptions for 178 yards and a touchdown in the two playoff games in January.

Cobb earned his first career Pro Bowl berth and finished ninth in the league in both receptions and total offensive touchdowns, while placing fourth in receiving scores.

His standout performance landed Cobb a four-year, $40 million deal to remain in Green Bay.

Cobb was a second-round pick by the Packers out of Kentucky in the 2011 NFL Draft.
