Cobb also likes the idea of spending more time catching rather than throwing.
"I get to concentrate on one position," he said. "I can get better and help out team get better by having a guy to go to."
Not that he's a bad signal caller, but Brooks and the Kentucky coaching staff have an urgent need at receiver and feel that Cobb needs to be on the field regardless of the position.
"Randall looks good any where he lines up," Brooks said. "He's good receiver, good punt returner and he's a good quarterback. He's just a real talent and a real difference maker."
Cobb finished with four catches for 70 yards and had three of those in the Blue team's first drive. Cobb hauled in a 19-yard pass from Fidler and completed the scoring drive with a 26-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter.
The touchdown in the right side of the end zone sparked a memory for Brooks.
"(It) reminded me of a Dicky Lyons catch," Brooks said.
Brooks said the play by Cobb is an example of what he expects from his receiving corps on a consistent basis.
"Those are the kind of plays we need to make at receiver," the Kentucky coach said. Randall is a big-time playmaker and can help any quarterback look better."
In his first spring contest, Cobb was impressive, just as he was last fall.
"No. 18 was a difference in the game," said Joker Phillips, Kentucky's head offensive coach. "The guy is a playmaker."
Not bad for a player who had knee surgery in December. Cobb said the knee felt fine, but wants to keep getting better.
"I need to get back to conditioning and that's going to be my main focus this summer," he said. "I just need to get my speed back. For me it's never where I want it, I'm always going for perfection and do was best that I can."
As a freshman last season, a healthy Cobb played at quarterback and wide receiver, before suffering a knee injury in the team's regular-season finale at Tennessee.
Cobb caught 21 passes for 197 yards and rushed for 316 more. As a quarterback, he completed 52 pass attempts for 542 yards and two scores and was started eight times at quarterback.
Brooks hasn't ruled out using Cobb at quarterback in special situations next fall and has installed a "Wildcat" scheme.
"We'll just have to see how that works," Brooks said.
Regardless of the position, Cobb is a player Kentucky needs on the field at all times.
"If they want me to go back to quarterback, go to running back, or wherever they want me to go. I am willing to do whatever to help the team out."
