Our beloved Randall Cobb was recently named the best slot receiver in the NFL according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com
Brooks says “It’s unfair to list Cobb strictly as a “slot receiver,” based on his spectacular versatility, but few guys can wreak havoc between the hashes like the fifth-year pro.” It’s pretty cool seeing all the recognition for a guy who worked his butt off to get where he is today.
Cobb should continue to blossom in Green Bay’s offense as he emerges as the real No. 1 receiver on that team with Jordy Nelson being more of a homerun type of receiver. The other guys on the list were Andrew Hawkins, Victor Cruz, Julian Edelman and Emmanuel Sanders.
