Packers WR coach Edgar Bennett on Randall Cobb:
• Love his versatility. High character player. Very excited to get him for his caliber.
• Another way he can contribute is on returns.
• His ability to catch football, create space, has good hands, can run after the catch--one of his strong suits. Stays on his feet. Tremendous balance.
• He has room to grow and learn. But you talk about smart kid with work ethic, that's driven and loves the game of football.
• Don't want to talk about lockout too much. At some point we'll get going. I don't see tremendous setbacks as far as getting him to play.
• He has pretty good size. He's been very durable. That's something that's stood out. Guy who has touched the ball a lot and he was durable. He takes care of his body.
• With some quarterback experience, he has overall picture as far as what everyone's responsibility is.
• Blocking? We all have to improve in that area. That's a big part of our offense. As a unit we have to improve in that area. Cobb has some experience blocking. He has that toughness, that attitude. More of cleaning up technique. I think he can do both slot and outside guy.
• Most important thing is we always want to bring in high character individuals, but this kid can play. That's the bottom line.
