1st Down: Best overall athlete on the Texas team?

Demarco Cobbs is a guy that I have my eye on for 2012. Cobbs is the least talked about starting linebacker on the Texas roster but may be the best overall athlete on the defense.

He plays with an attitude, runs like an offensive player and makes contact like a middle linebacker. He can cover and can play sideline to sideline.

Keenan Robinson and Emmanuel Acho were huge in play, leadership and experience. Cobbs will go a long way in helping this team start where last year’s defense left.

They could even be better in 2012, and Cobbs could be a big reason.
