College football: Former Kentucky WR Randall Cobb graduates

  Former Wildcat Randall Cobb became the first person in his family to graduate college.

Graduation season is in full force, and even NFL players are earning their degrees even after leaving college.

Randall Cobb, one of the top wide receivers for the Green Bay Packers, earned his degree from Kentucky five years after leaving the Wildcats for the NFL.

In his off time, Cobb has been taking courses at Kentucky and will officially become a college graduate in August. He will also become the first member in his family to graduate college.

Cobb was a triple-threat for the Wildcats during his three season at Kentucky. He rushed for 1,313 yards and 22 touchdowns, caught 144 passes for 1,661 yards and 13 touchdowns and even threw for 689 yards and five touchdowns.

Congrats, Randall.
