Packers Rookie WR Randall Cobb Turns First Career Catch Into 32-Yard Touchdown Against Saints

By Dan Parzych

When the Green Bay Packers selected wide receiver Randall Cobb in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft, everybody was wondering how he would fit in considering the wide receiver corps was already loaded with talent. In his first career NFL game against the New Orleans Saints, the former Kentucky standout wasted no time making an impact with his new team in the first quarter of play.

Cobb’s first career reception ended him being his first career touchdown as well. Not only did Cobb break loose 32 yards for the score, but he displayed an impressive stiff arm to help the Packers jump out to a 21-7 lead over the Saints late in the first quarter.

While he looked impressive in his Packers debut, Cobb is expected to be used more in the return game as a rookie this upcoming season. One of the main reasons why Green Bay drafted Cobb was because of his triple-threat ability and hopefully he continues to make an impact throughout his rookie season.
