ESPN and Scouts, Inc. had a couple of interesting stories today, highlighting the most versatile players in the AFC and NFC. Unfortunately, for those who do not have a subscription, it is behind the ESPN Insider paywall, but I can still share the part of it that pertains to the Green Bay Packers.

Gary Horton has Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji as his No. 7 most versatile player and Randall Cobb comes in at No. 9. The Packers are the only team that had two players on his list in the NFC, while two members of the Patriots made the AFC list.

Here's a short excerpt from the Raji section:

He can line up as a nose tackle in the Packers' base 3-4 front, but he is more effective as a 3-4 DE, dropping in an occasional zone blitz ... [and] he can play a penetrating defensive tackle in their 4-3 look.

Regarding Cobb, Horton mostly talked about his value as a return man, but added this bit about his potential as a wide receiver:

[H]is 25 receptions with 15 yards per catch last season was impressive. He also had only two drops in 34 targeted throws.
