Last season, as a receiver in 2010, he cautght 84 passes for 1,017 yards and seven touchdowns, he also threw three touchdown passes out of the "WildCobb" formation, and he broke the SEC single-season record for total yardage with 2,396.
In 34 games with Kentucky, Cobb caught 139 passes for 1,599 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also ran 225 times for 1,290 yards and 22 scores, completed 62 passes in 122 attempts for five touchdowns and five interceptions, returned 61 punts for 601 yards and two touchdowns, and returned 40 kickoffs for 980 yards.
Kentucky WR Randall Cobb is "flying up draft boards" over the past two months, according to the AOL.SportingNews.com 's Russ Lande:
When Cobb (5-11, 186) declared early for the NFL Draft around the Senior Bowl, talk was that Boise State wide receiver Titus Young (5-11 1/4, 174) had been so good that he was going to be the third receiver taken. Over the last two-plus months, however, Cobb has been flying up draft boards with scouts, coaches and front office executives breaking down film and watching him workout. Cobb is an explosive playmaker with the ability to impact games anytime he gets the ball in his hands. While Young is a good prospect and Leonard Hankerson (6-1 5/8, 205) is an athletic big receiver, when it comes to an explosive playmaker, Cobb has vaulted over them, along with many others, to be viewed as the No. 3 receiver in the draft. He could end up being a late first-round pick.
Kentucky WR Randall Cobb impressed during his workout for NFL scouts at the Pro Day where 26 NFL teams had representatives in attendance to watch them. A slot receiver prospect at 5'10 1/4" and 191 pounds.
Tony Pauline reports the feeling from scouts leaving UK's Pro-day is Cobb will not get out of the second round. When it came to catching the ball one scout described it as “putting on a clinic” ... caught everything, ran crisp, precise routes and looked natural. http://www.draftinsider.net/blog/?p=5075
Frequently described as "quick" more than "fast", Cobb registered an official forty time of 4.45 at the Scouting Combine, afterwards Ex-Texans GM Charley Casserly compared Cobb to a "poor man's Hines Ward," calling him a "third-round type guy." Another NFC scout said Cobb grades out as an "A-plus character guy" who's "competitive and scrappy."
The SportingNews agrees with the Ward comparison, and summarizes : Cobb started three years for Kentucky at a variety of positions. He was a Wildcat quarterback, slot and outside receiver, punt returner and kickoff returner. He’ll be a regular wideout at the next level and deserves second-round consideration by a team looking for a slot receiver and return man.

Cobb, a first-team All-American in 2010 as an all-purpose player, didn't know he was going to be asked to run drills as a running back at his pro-day, even though running back was one of the few skill positions Cobb never played at Kentucky, where he stared as a QB, WR, KR (he was even the team's first-string holder).
Wes Bunting's impression of Cobb: A smart, savvy inside receiver with good short-area quickness and run after the catch ability. Looks like an ideal slot receiver at the next level who can separate quickly and be a productive No. 3 wideout in the NFL.
SportsIlustrated one ups him : He's a multipurpose offensive threat with the skills to be a second receiver and return man on the NFL level.
Summary by Doug Farrar (Shutdown Corner : YahooSports):
"...this is the type of player who will always look for ways to succeed. Randall Cobb is not a jack of all trades and master of none; his versatility translated into impressive overall production in college, and there's no reason to believe that he can't do the same one level up." http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/The-Second-Shutdown-40-53-Randall-Cobb-WR-?urn=nfl-wp749
