This morning, I wrote a piece about Randall Cobb and how he is poised on the precipice of superstardom – but at least one website gives him no respect; the won’t believe it – in fact, you won’t find one Packer on this top 15 list.
Well, maybe it’s a good thing. After all, the Packers tend to fly under the radar. All we have to do is look toward already-superstar Clay Matthews III who talked earlier this spring about the “Packers Way” and succinctly described why taking care of their own and not seeking publicity is what this franchise is all about.
We don’t need the other members of the media to tell us who is the best up-and-coming Packers. We don’t need our players on lists that mean basically nothing now and will be even more meaningless by next season.
All we have to do is listen to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who said this week what he knows about Cobb. We know that other teams fear him not just because he was the Packers leading pass-catcher in just his sophomore season, but because he has accumulated nearly 4,000 yards of total yardage in just two years … and we know that he will only get better.
I don’t have any real arguments with the following list. The players on this list are incredibly talented football players and have bright futures. But you tell me if Randall Cobb or Casey Hayward might fit somewhere in here.
