Question: Did you still keep up with the Kentucky football program?
Cobb: “I do. I try to as much as I can. When I get the opportunity, I do. I had dinner with (offensive coordinator) coach (Randy) Sanders last night and talked a lot this morning. Just trying to keep that relationship. They have the athletes and players that can get it done. They just have to go out and do it.”
Question: What was your reaction to Kentucky beating Tennessee last year with your former roommate, receiver Matt Roark, at quarterback?
Cobb: “Did you see the video (of me celebrating)? That’s how it is. That was a big win not only for me but for this school, this state. For all of us. I think we were all impacted by it. It was great.”
Question: How proud are you of the Alcoa, Tenn., connection to Kentucky now that just keeps sending players to UK, including walk-on Cody Lewis this year?
Cobb: “It is five now. We had Kyrus Lanxter before me and me and Tyler Robinson, then Darrell (Williams) and now Cody. I am really excited to have Cody up here. He was like my little brother growing up. His sister and me were pretty good friends, so I was around him a lot. I am glad to see him up here.”
Question: Did you play a role in him ending up at Kentucky?
Cobb: “I don’t think I played a big role. I told him if he had the opportunity, I hoped he would go to Kentucky. But he did what he did on his own. I guess the coaches liked him.”
Question: Why did you know Williams would be such a good player and make a big impact even as a fullback during his first season last year?
Cobb: “He is still young. He still has a lot of growing and maturing to do. I know his mindset. I know his drive. I know his determination. I know his athletic ability. I know what he is capable of becoming and will become.”
Question: What’s it been like have former UK punter Tim Masthay at the Packers with you?
Cobb: “Tim helped me with the return game a lot right away. He explained to me what punters try to do in the NFL that’s different than college and enabled me adjust a lot quicker.”
