How’d he get to the Blue™?
Stefan Cobbs was a three star recruit, but probably had the talent to be a borderline four star. Boise State was lucky to secure a commitment from him after he was injured his junior year because he went off as a senior. He snagged 67 passes for 1,332 yards and 24 (!!!) touchdowns. He was also able to contribute on special teams to the tune of a 22.1 yard kick return average (nine attempts) and a 7.6 yard punt return average (seven attempts). For his efforts he was named the Texas 3-6A All-District MVP.
Sometimes, to be honest, we wing it on these. Other times, they’re gift wrapped. In Stefan’s case, it’s definitely the latter as it is also his Twitter handle.
Four time NFL All-Pro, Adrian Peterson. Which is high praise because, despite the fact that he only managed 70 yards on the ground against Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl, he’s still an incredible football player...
Cobbs only had three catches last year for a total of 57 yards. However, his one catch in the regular season was a promising glimpse of his capability. He took a short screen pass 44 yards for a touchdown against Portland State.
We’ve talked a lot—and likely will continue to—about how many excellent receiving options the Boise State offense will have at its disposal in 2020. Cobbs likely won’t experience being buried on the depth chart this year though. He’s far too talented for that. I don’t expect him to directly supplant any of the more proven options, but I fully expect that he will be utilized much more than his career stats would thus far indicate he might be. See for yourself:
Is he on Twitter?
Completely made up fact
There are, in fact, Stefan Cobbs bobbleheads in existence. Less known, however, is the fact that there is a larger homage from his hometown in the form of a statue of his likeness outside city hall in Keller, Texas. This transpired when a competition for the "Most Notable Resident" of Keller, Texas concluded with Stefan Cobbs edging out former NFL kicker, Garrett Hartley, and Doc McStuffins' mom.
