    Cobb made a name for himself as a junior in 2005 when he matched up against Wellington (Fla.) High's Tyler Herron and competed well. This spring it was his turn to climb draft boards, and he came on strong after spending the fall playing quarterback. He offers less projection and more present ability than the prototypical high school pitcher. While athletic, his frame isn't big and strong, creating questions about his durability. He doesn't pitch off his fastball, mostly because he features a well-above-average curveball. It's a power out pitch with 11-to-5 break that he throws in any count. His fastball sits between 87-91 mph, though he endured a heavy workload this spring and his fastball velocity tailed off late in the season. He also throws a split-finger fastball. His overall command is above-average. Cobb has committed to Clemson, and is considered signable in the top three rounds.
