Cobb's three games with his most offensive snaps came in a row from Weeks 14-16, according to ProFootballFocus. It's hard not to notice Cobb's efficiency. He caught all 11 passes thrown at him for 158 yards in his final four games of the year, including the playoffs. For the season, Cobb caught over 80 percent of his targets. That was the highest number in the league for receivers with more than 15 catches.
Randall Cobb has carved out a niche as a solid return man with the Packers, but he has shown flashes of excellence at wideout, too. Cobb figures to get plenty of reps at receiver in 2012.

The Packers have what Gregg Rosenthal calls a high-class problem in Randall Cobb. Do they use him solely as a returner? Or do they bring him along as a receiver, ala the Bears Devin Hester?
Thanks for the links, Jeff.
Funny. One of the knocks on Cobb in college was his ability to catch the ball consistently. Now, he's the most efficient WR in the NFL in that category.

^well, 11 for 11's great, but that's not much stats to judge on. Still, it's certainly a great accomplishment at this point. I always heard people knock Cobb's size and speed in college, but if you ever watched him live with the ball, it was obvious that he just flat knew how to get yardage regardless of any limitations. I still remember the first time I saw him return a kick. I looked immediatly at my dad with wide eyes and said "we've got ourselves a football player!"
