LEXINGTON, Ky.  — Kentucky wide receiver Randall Cobb is heading to the NFL.

The junior first-team All-American announced Thursday he will bypass his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

The 5-foot-11, 186-pound Cobb led Kentucky with 955 yards receiving, 401 yards rushing and 12 combined touchdowns. He also threw for three scores and returned a punt for a touchdown.

He was selected an All-American as an all-purpose player by The Associated Press last month.

Cobb finished his career by accounting for 204 total yards in a 27-10 loss to Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl last Saturday as Kentucky finished 6-7.

Cobb said he's enjoyed "every last second" of his career at Kentucky but had to make the best decision for his future.
