With the increase of trickery in NFL offenses, players who can play multiple positions is at a premium.
Cobb has started at quarterback and wide receiver for the Wildcats and was named the team's most valuable player last season. He also returns punts and kicks. Cobb has mainly played wide receiver this season, and has 63 receptions for 783 yards and seven touchdowns. He also has 206 yards rushing on 37 carries with three touchdowns. He's even thrown three touchdown passes this season.
It's an impressive stat line from the kind of athlete a creative offense could have fun with. But entering the draft isn't a certainty for Cobb.
"It's going to be one of the hardest decisions that I've ever had to make," Cobb told reporters. "There's a lot that I still want to accomplish. There's still a lot that I've set my mind for to try and do for this program. We haven't made all the expectations I planned on, but we have done a lot the past three years I've been here. There's a lot that's going to weigh into the decision."
Kentucky is 5-5 on the year and plays Vanderbilt on Saturday. When the site rankings are redone, Cobb will be in the top 150 players. Where exactly isn't settled.
Another Kentucky player who might test the draft waters is junior linebacker Danny Trevathan. He leads the Southeastern Conference in tackles. He said on Wednesday that he'll inquire about the draft if he finishes the season strong.
