'In The Zone' with Dhani Jones: Randall Cobb's hard work

New, comments

The newest "In The Zone" with Dhani Jones talks with Randall Cobb, the Packers wide receiver who knows about overcoming adversity, and does his best to never forget what got him to the NFL: hard work.

"My dad always preached to me about work. About dedication."

For the next installment of his ongoing "In The Zone" series, Dhani Jones travels to Green Bay. There, at Lambeau Field, one of football's most hallowed grounds, he meets the Packers' Randall Cobb, a second-year wide receiver.

The native of Tennessee was named the state's Mr. Football as a quarterback, the position he intended to play at Kentucky. But after his freshman season, the Wildcats moved him to wide receiver, and the rest, as Cobb says, "is history."

In the video with Dhani Jones, Cobb talks about that transition, and how adjusting to life in the NFL was easy at first, but quickly became exhausting near the end of his rookie campaign.

Cobb has 71 receptions and seven touchdowns for the Packers in 2012.
