University of Cumberlands running back Terrance Cobb has the NFL bloodlines and the production to intrigue scouts.
The younger brother of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back and current San Francisco 49ers Wester region area scout Reggie Cobb, Cobb has visited the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills and the 49ers.
The small-school standout is fully recovered from a foot injury suffered last season
Cobb rushed for 1,991 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior and was named Mid-South Conference East Divsiion Player of the Year and an NAIA All-American. Here's a link to his highlight tape
The 5-foot-10, 221-pounder has run the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds.
"I love the game and I can't wait to into the NFL and show what I can do," Cobb said in a telephone interview with National Football Post. "I'm a very hard worker and I'm a winner who has strong character. I've gotten a lot of great advice from my brother about what it takes to be a professional and I'm going to do whatever I have to do to be successful. I have speed, power and vision working in my favor."
Last season, Cobb was sidelined for all but six games. He still averaged 5.8 yards per carry, 105 all-purpose yards per game and scored six touchdowns.
Cobb is projected as a late-round draft target.
Cobb was recruited by several Division programs out of high school growing up in Knoxville, including Tennessee and Ole Miss. He enrolled at Jones County Junior College in Mississippi before enrolling at Cumberlands.
"I wouldn't trade my experience for anything," Cobb said. "I love the journey I've been on and I can't wait to see what happens next."
