    UNT's Cobbs invited to Patriots' rookie camp

    --------------

    This is a good football player. His size (5-8, 206) and slow 40 (4.71) were the primary reasons for him not being drafted. Other than his 40 time, his Pro Day numbers were decent:

    4.22 short shuttle... 7.12 in the 3-cone... 32" vertical... 9'6" broad jump... 20 reps of 225 pounds

    Poor field conditions may have contributed to that 4.71...as he ran again indoors and posted a 4.47 and 4.51 during another workout at UT-Arlington.

    Looking beyond the numbers, he's a strong inside runner with excellent vision. Also a decent blocker and good receiver.

    I think he sticks...possibly practice squad -- maybe NFLE.

    Thoughts from those who've seen him?

    no its not..im just guessing by looking at home towns..1s from little rock one is from shawnee, OK

    anyways..i dont see him making the roster..he is 5"9(small) and is slow for that size that you usually look for a small scatback

    Could be a 3rd down back possibility. Faulk you better watch over your shoulder! I'd like to have someone with better ball security skills handling the 3rd down role, nothing against Faulk.

    Yep fumbling every 29 touches has made Belichick's blood pressure go up for sure.

    It's the new hybrid, Patrick Pass and Cedric Cobbs in one dynamic new back... Patrick Cobbs! Guaranteed not to make the roster ;)

    Do you really think he's a threat to Faulk? Faulk could do better than a 4.7 while running backwards and his shoelaces tied together.

    Exactly, Husker - How soon people seem to forget how many good things happen when Faulk gets the ball. He is a lethal when running the screen. I would be very surprised to see him cut this year....

    I agree..cut?? NO..but a backup?? or someone being groomed fo that?? Why not?? No Faulk is a great contributer to what the team does..when he was out, it was so different in what they could do..and could not.
