Scouting Report: Strengths
- Cobb has excellent awareness in zone coverage.
- In coverage, Cobb shows excellent awareness and anticipation when dropping back into zone, and he has the fluidity and speed to run with most tight ends over the middle.
- He has violent hands and consistently breaks away and disengages from blockers. He’s instinctive, reading, reacting and locating the ball quickly, and finishing plays as an authoritative, wrap-up tackler.
- He’s a sure and violent wrap-up tackler with sideline-to-sideline range. He’s an excellent tackler in space, showing loose hips and the ability to break down and contain runners.
- Cobb shows good quickness off the line of scrimmage and flashes the violent hands to win around the edge.
- Looks the part. Good height and a thick, muscular build. Long arms. Good overall athleticism and straight-line speed.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- As a pass rusher, Cobb lacks the ideal length to consistently win off the edge, even if he manages to improve his at-times sloppy hand usage.
- Cobb is on the small side and struggles to slip blocks; he’ll need to be covered up in order to make plays.
- He’s a grab-and-drag tackler and needs to be covered up by his defensive line in order to move freely against the run; he’s cooked if he runs into blockers at the second level.
