Randall Cobb didn't waste any time making a name for himself during his rookie year with the Green Bay Packers, scoring a pair of touchdowns in his professional debut. He would go on to catch 25 passes for 375 yards in his first season while also becoming one of the top return men in the NFL.

Gary Horton of ESPN.com sees even bigger things in store for the do-it-all former Wildcat.

Horton named his top 10 projected breakout performers in both conferences and Cobb is at the top of the list. The article can be read by ESPN Insiders only, but here is what he has to say about Cobb:

1. Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers
He was a dynamic return specialist as a rookie and showed a lot of explosiveness in the open field. He caught 25 passes in 2011, and his quickness and yards-after-catch ability are off the charts. But more importantly for a young player, he had few drops. With so many weapons in this spread passing game, it will be tough to give Cobb any more than single coverage from the opposition's third- or fourth-best corner.
