Rich Brooks rides into retirement after a very successful stint at UK where he brought the program back to prominence. His departure is timely as the Wildcats roster is thin on talent after offering a number of solid NFL prospects the past few seasons.
Junior Randall Cobb is a solid possession receiver that does a good job coming back to the ball out of breaks, extending his hands and making the reception away from his frame. Quick releasing off the line, he immediately gets to top speed and shows sharpness running routes. Cobb lacks the deep speed and really cannot run to long throw yet is a solid underneath receiver.
Derrick Locke is a slippery ball carrier with a versatile game. Elusive, Locke displays the ability to consistently create yardage and is a terrific receiver out of the backfield besides giving effort blocking. He also impacts the game as a return specialist. Locke runs with an aggressive attitude and puts his shoulders into opponents but has limited size and will be a role player in the NFL.
Randall Burden is a nice sized cornerback that fights hard throughout the action to defend the pass. Physical, he uses his frame to get inside positioning and is quick up the field to defend the run or screen passes.
