PFW executive editor and resident Packers expert Dan Arkush presents his weekly report on the Packers' 2011 rookie class.

Randall Cobb had more company than usual from his fellow rookies in the Week Four rout of the Broncos. But the Packers' second-round draft pick still made the most noteworthy impression.

As a receiver, he flashed the big-play ability that was a highlight of the Packers' season-opening win over the Saints with a 61-yard completion down the middle of the field with veteran S Brian Dawkins defending in vain. That reception set up a James Jones' TD catch three plays later. Cobb also had two punt returns for seven yards and two kickoff returns for 59 yards, with a long of 30 that began nine yards deep in the endzone.

As for the other Packer rookies, third-round RB Alex Green finally got a chance to strut his stuff in garbage time, with three carries for 11 yards, including an eight-yard scamper. On his first pro play ever, Green committed a penalty for an illegal block as a member of the kickoff-coverage unit.

Rookie TEs D.J. Williams and Ryan Taylor continued to make minimal special-teams contributions with one special-teams tackle and one special-teams assist, respectively.

Undrafted rookie Vic So'oto was active for first time this season but did not play from scrimmage until late in the fourth quarter.
