  • On Thursday, ESPN reported that Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy discussed his desire to get the ball into wide receiver Randall Cobb’s hands more often.
  • Cobb has been one of the most consistent receivers in the NFL, being top-25 graded in four of the past five seasons. Cobb’s best season was 2014, when he earned the fourth highest wide receiver grade at 88.5. This past year Cobb was graded 22nd out of 115 eligible receivers with a mark of 81.0.
  • In 2016, Cobb had the most reliable hands in the NFL, dropping zero of his 60 catchable targets and ultimately ranking first out of 96 eligible receivers in drop rate.
  • When Cobb is targeted, good things happen. Since 2012 Cobb ranks third among all WRs (min 250 receptions) in wide receiver rating at 116.2.
