Aaron Rodgers thinks Randall Cobb could catch 100 passes

At only 22 years of age, Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb is one of the league's most talented young receivers.

In his second season, Cobb set career highs last year with 80 receptions for 954 yards and eight touchdowns. In addition, he carried the ball 10 times for another 132 yards.

As a returner, Cobb averaged 9.4 yards and 25.4 yards per punt and kickoff return, respectively. In the past two years, he has returned two punts and one kickoff for scores as well.

In a chat with Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that he thinks Cobb "can be a 100-catch guy. We haven't had that here in a while. But I think he can. I think he's a special player. As long as he can stay healthy, I think he's going to be a big-time star for us."

Only two players in Packers history have ever reached the 100-reception mark: Sterling Sharpe (1992 and 1993) and Robert Brooks (1995).

Not only is Cobb one of the league's most exciting and dynamic playmakers, but he has impressed Rodgers with his work ethic.

Rodgers also said in the Q&A that Cobb "puts a lot of extra time in. He watches a ton of film. He spent an off-season watching various slot guys that he admired and tried to pick things up. He's very well-coached. I think Edgar Bennett deserves a lot of credit. ... Randall sees the game through the eyes of a quarterback because he was a quarterback. So he understands timing and spacing and when he has to get out of his breaks. He's an excellent — just like Jordy is — an excellent second reaction guy."

Over the weekend, I have updated my fantasy football rankings and here is where the Packers rank in my 2013 wide receiver rankings (standard scoring): Cobb (13), Jordy Nelson (15) and James Jones (32).
