(1) COURTLAND SUTTON VS. (16) DEONTAY BURNETT (8) SIMMIE COBBS VS. (9) AUDEN TATE Simmie Cobbs put scouts on notice in his first game of 2017, dropping 11 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown on a talented Ohio State defense. With a big-bodied frame, Cobbs has the size to bull most defensive backs. That size could be enticing to a team at the next level. Currently Cobbs projects as a Day 3 selection in the fifth-round range. Late round picks with 10th-percentile SPARQ scores don’t usually make for a successful recipe. Luckily for Cobbs, he may be taking on his doppleganger this round.
