Strengths

Simmie has prototype size. He is a big, imposing receiver, how plays with good body control. He is good at playing the ball in the air. He does a good job of sitting in zone coverage.


Weaknesses

Cobbs does not have good speed. For a player that is his size, he gets controlled in press coverage. His hands and effort are inconsistent from play to play. He doesnt seperate very well, and doesnt run very smooth routes in man coverage.


Big Picture

Cobbs had his best game of the year against Ohio State in Week 1. He showed that he can be a weapon in the red zone, and has some skills with the ball in the air. He will have to get a bit tougher, and play more to his size at the next level. He will also need to better his motor and his consistency as well. Cobbs has to come in and win in the red zone to have a spot on an NFL roster. More likely than not, he will be a day three selection.
