Although it has to be seen whether a running back will be in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, in what could be the third year in a row without one, the running back position is among the deepest in the upcoming draft class. There are many ballcarriers who could be selected on Day 2 or early on Day 3 and have an immediate impact on the team that drafts them, and one of them is Minnesota’s David Cobb.

A senior and two-year starter at Minnesota, Cobb has accepted a Senior Bowl invite. According to the Gophers’ official athletics website, Cobb measures at 5’11″ and 220 pounds. His thick legs and overall stocky build fits the mold of him as a player, a north-south runner with power.

Texas Tech QB Seth Doege will get a chance to prove he is draft worthy against a stout Minnesota pass defense. Doege is fourth in the nation in passing yardage with 3,934 and second in passing touchdowns with 38. There likely won’t be many players from this game drafted come April, with Doege and Tech SS Cody Davis having the best chances. Gofer QB Marquis Gray may need to switch positions to have a
chance at the next level. Look for Texas Tech to win this one. (more…)

RB Tim Cornett was the star of the night for us as he ran for 127 yards and 2 TD’s (Photo: US Presswire)

Minnesota came away counting their blessing as the escape Las Vegas with a much needed win. The Rebels kept things tight forcing double OT but this game was more about miscues and missed opportunities than anything else.
