    He's a tough inside/outside runner...was alwasy considered too small...Lited weights in High School...but never had a chance at a larger school. He had a tryout with the team and stuck.
    He's a good runner inside and..I think a PSqd possibility...and maybe a Faulk replacement in years to come...

    IIRC he was very productive at North Texas state. The part of the article about 4 blocked punts in camp was interesting. That could be his ticket to the roster.

    Thanks for posting JR4 - nice read.

    I like how Patriot players reach out and help the kid along. Classy players will do just that. While not limited to the Pats - you won't find that kind of help coming from players from all teams.

    Well, if he is Faulk's future replacement, you can be sure of a few things:

    - The Pats will let Faulk go a year too soon rather than a year too late

    - When it is apparent that Cobbs is competing for the job, fans will rail against getting rid of a "proven veteran" for a guy "who has never taken an NFL snap."

    -The pats will be reamed by fans and press alike for being cold-hearted towards a player who did so much for him. "After all Faulk has done for the Pats, he deserves ..."

    -When Faulk is let go, he will be that year's "Pat's player they could not afford to lose" and the reason for their upcoming demise.

    I hope he does good. In a competition between will power and talent ,will power triumph`s more than talent.
    He has survived so far in a very difficult system and i am sure he is more motivated then maroney in many ways.

    Blocking 4 punts in 2 days ... where other things beside punt drills were being conducted ...
    DOES catch the eye.
