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.
