GREEN BAY, WIS. - Former Wildcats standout Randall Cobb had a beginning to his
NFL career that most people only dream about. Cobb scored a 32-yard
touchdown on a routine pass over the middle, then tied an NFL record with a
108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown n the Packers' 42-34 victory over the
New Orleans Saints, a nail-biter with an outcome that ended on the game's final
play when the Packers stopped Mark Ingram's dive toward the end zone with zeros
on the clock.
At the end of the second round of the 2011 draft Randall Cobb remained unchosen, until the Packers picked him up.
Cobb became the first person born in the 1990s to play in an NFL game.
"We have a lot of weapons," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said with a
straight face. It's not like Cobb was a secret to UK fans. He became an all-SEC
player while scoring 37 touchdowns at Kentucky.
