Cobb's top line speed is better but I feel that they are somewhat similar in other aspects.
Cobb isn't that much faster than Bruce Ellington. Cobb ran a 4.46 at the combine, and Bruce ran a 4.54 in events where he's been clocked. That's a difference of about 3/4 of a yard if they were to race those times.
But I've posted this many of times in other threads. Bruce Ellington is similar in size and speed to some of the best NFL Slot receivers (Lance Moore, Wes Welker, Davone Bess, Danny Amendola, etc. etc.)
