Biography

 
PRO: The Titans selected David Cobb in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  As a rookie, he served primarily as a reserve running back.  The 5-foot-11-inch, 229-pounder is a powerful, downhill runner who plays with tremendous balance and has the reputation for finishing runs.  He also has exceptional breakaway potential for a runner of his compact build.  At Minnesota, he became the school’s all-time single-season rushing leader (1,626) as a senior.
