Indiana Wide Receiver Simmie Cobbs To Enter NFL Draft

Indiana wide receiver Simmie Cobbs announced that he will forgo his fifth season of collegiate eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL draft.

Cobbs made waves in 2015 when he grabbed 60 receptions, averaging a whopping 17.3 yards per catch.

Cobb was forced to take a medical redshirt in 2016 due to an ankle injury but bounced back to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors, notching 841 yards and eight touchdowns in his return campaign.

At 6’4″, 200 pounds, Cobbs becomes one of the top prospects coming out for the NFL Draft.

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report ranked Cobbs as the draft’s fifth-best wide receiver and USA Today’s Luke Easterling ranked Cobbs 13th among all wideouts, projecting the receiver to be a 2nd day selection.

But, as everything draft-related goes, Cobbs’ draft projection is likely to change dozens of times in the coming months.
