Texas WR Quan Cosby, 26, is older than most draft prospects. But being drafted is not new to him, as he was drafted by the Anaheim Angels in 2001 and played four seasons in their minor league system.
Cosby is looking forward to the remainder of the week in Mobile, Ala., where he'll get to prove to NFL scouts that football is his true calling.
"It's a huge week for us to go out and perform and show [scouts] what we came for," he said.
Cosby caught touchdown passes in 34 of his 39 games at Texas. He was responsible for the game-winner in the win over Ohio State in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl.
A top prospect who was named to the All-Big 12 team, Cosby is known for being active in his community.
Cosby is looking forward to working with the coaching staff of the Jacksonville Jaguars this week. He looks at the days ahead as an extended tryout for what he hopes will be a very long career in the NFL.
"It's not just a tryout for the Jaguars -- it's for everybody. You go out there and you try out and have a good practice and have a good performance," he said.
Cosby has great ball skills, soft hands and is elusive after the catch. He has a proven work ethic and also doubles as a return man. He rates as a middle-round prospect.
