01/24/2013 - 2013 Senior Bowl, Wide Receivers, Three down...2. Cobi Hamilton, Arkansas. When the Senior Bowl's first practice wrapped up, I came away interested in Hamilton. He had made some nice catches both underneath and downfield and had some good speed to him. But he was invisible going forward as the other receivers flashed more often. So maybe it's a case of getting lost in the shuffle since he clearly enjoyed a productive career at Arkansas with a Southeastern Conference record for most yards in a single-game (303) with Top-5 finishes in receptions (90) and yards (1,335) last year. - Dave Richard, CBSSports.com

12/16/2012 - 2012 AP ALL-AMERICAN THIRD TEAM: WR - Cobi Hamilton, senior, Arkansas...Hamilton put together the greatest season by a receiver in Arkansas history and one of the best ever by an SEC pass catcher in 2012. He broke the Arkansas single-season records for receptions, receiving yards and 10-plus catch games as well as UA career records for receptions and 10-plus catch games. His 90 catches in 2012 broke the previous record of 66 set by Jarius Wright in 2011 and are tied for the third-highest single-season total in SEC history.

Hamilton's 1,335 receiving yards broke Wright's record of 1,117 from last season and rank fourth on the SEC's single-season list. He also broke Wright's career record with 175 catches, bettering the mark of 168 put up from 2008-11, and became the first Razorback to record more than two 10-plus catch games with five. Hamilton also recorded four 100-yard receiving games in 2012, tied for third on UA's single-season list. - Arkansas football

12/07/2012 - 2012 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (MEDIA): WR - Cobi Hamilton (Unanimous), Arkansas, Sr., has been selected First Team All-Southeastern Conference (Media selection) for the 2012 college football season. The Texarkana, Texas, native ended his career catching at least one pass in 34 straight games, the longest active streak in the SEC and tied for 10th-longest active in the NCAA.

Hamilton also broke the SEC single-game receiving yards record with 303 yards on 10 catches against Rutgers. His receiving yards are tied for the 16th-highest single-game total in NCAA history, and his average of 30.3 yards per catch broke the SEC record for a game with at least 10 receptions. His 303 all-purpose yards against Rutgers are the most in the SEC this season and tied for the 18th-highest single-game output in the country in 2012. - Arkansas football

09/25/2012 - SEC NFL DRAFT PROSPECT WATCH - WEEK 4: Keep an eye on: WR Cobi Hamilton 6-3, 210, Arkansas: Why you should watch him? His performance on Saturday demands a lot of attention. The senior WR had 10 catches for 303 yards and three touchdowns in Arkansas' 36-26 loss against Rutgers. He was already a strong NFL prospect, but those numbers will boost his stock even more. Season stats (four games): 20 catches, 429 yards, 4 TDs. Player ranking: Hamilton is ranked as the No. 128 prospect overall and the No. 17 WR on CBSSports.com's latest player rankings. Up next: Arkansas travels to Texas A&M on Saturday. Hamilton had three receptions for 47 yards against the Aggies last year. - Daniel Lewis, CBSSports.com

09/24/2012 - WEEK 4 SEC CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Cobi Hamilton, Wide Receiver, Arkansas...Hamilton set an SEC record with 303 receiving yards on 10 catches and three touchdowns in Arkansas' 35-26 loss to Rutgers. The yardage total is the most in NCAA FBS this season and 14th highest in FBS history and the average per catch (30.3) is also an SEC record. - SEC football

09/14/2012 - Five Prospects I'll Be Watching Saturday: Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas: With star quarterback Tyler Wilson not expected to be available to play Saturday against the top-rated defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide, points could be tough to come by for the Razorbacks. As such, the team will be looking to their "other" skill position stars to carry the load, including running back Knile Davis and Hamilton, the team's leading returning pass-catcher. Hamilton certainly has a tough test ahead of him. The Tide appears to have yet another first round caliber cornerback in Dee Milliner, who likely will draw Hamilton on most routes. At 6-2, 209 pounds, however, Hamilton has the size to handle the tough draw and enough speed to sneak downfield and give the Razorbacks big play opportunities. Hamilton isn't the elite prospect his hype might lead you to believe. He's currently ranked as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 11 receiver for the 2013 draft. A big showing against the Tide, however, could certainly push him up the board. This game is scheduled to begin at 3:30 pm eastern and will be televised by CBS. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

09/11/2012 - Senior WR Cobi Hamilton had six receptions for 99 yards in the loss to Louisiana-Monroe, extending his streak of games with at least one reception to 24 in a row. - The Sports Xchange

09/05/2012 - Arkansas receiver Cobi Hamilton will return to practice Monday after missing the majority of the Razorbacks' season-opening win over Jacksonville State on Saturday. Hamilton is "fine", Arkansas coach John L. Smith said. There still is no exact description of his injury, only that it was one "above the shoulders". The senior caught two passes for 13 yards before leaving in the first quarter of the Razorbacks' 49-24 win over the Gamecocks. Arkansas will host Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday at Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium. - Matt Jones, The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

08/15/2012 - Top-five Arkansas prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. WR Cobi Hamilton...With Arkansas losing three receivers to the NFL via the fourth round of the 2012 draft, Hamilton is poised to enjoy a breakout senior campaign as Wilson's likely No. 1 target. Hamilton has certainly experienced a great deal of success already for the Razorbacks. He heads into the 2012 campaign having already caught 85 passes for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns in 39 games (including 18 starts) but those numbers have been spread evenly throughout his career. Hamilton, in fact, caught a career high 34 passes (including four touchdowns) last year but actually was more productive from a yardage and touchdown standpoint as a sophomore (32-630-six). Hamilton's size and physicality make him an ideal fit as an outside receiver in Arkansas' scheme but for him to earn the top 100 selection his hype would indicate he'll need to run better for scouts than he appears capable of doing based on film review. Hamilton is a long-strider who has, thus far, been rarely asked to run the complicated routes required in most NFL offenses. He's typically running verticals or deep crossing patterns, showing limited ability to consistently gain separation as a route-runner from defensive backs. He's made some huge plays for the Razorbacks over his career, including scoring two long touchdowns against LSU (80, 85 yards) in 2010 and should get plenty of opportunities to do the same this season. Unless he's been hit in stride, however, Hamilton hasn't yet shown a great deal of natural elusiveness or acceleration to make plays on his own consistently. - Rob Rang, The Sports Xchange

08/07/2012 - WR Cobi Hamilton is Arkansas' leading returning receiver after catching 34 passes for 518 yards in 2011. He has 85 career receptions for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns and ranks 11th in school history in TD receptions. Marcus Monk holds the school record with 27 followed by Jarius Wright with 24 and Anthony Lucas with 23, but Hamilton will move into the No. 4 spot on the list with five more touchdown receptions. - The Sports Xchange

08/04/2012 - Cobi Hamilton looked around during Arkansas' first practice and noticed something was missing. In this case, that something was the most productive receiving group in school history - former Razorbacks receivers Joe Adams, Greg Childs and Jarius Wright. Finding playmakers to replace the departed trio, who accounted for 465 catches and 7,410 yards in their careers, is near the top of Arkansas' priority list during fall camp. It's a task that was made more difficult by the dismissal of former receiver Marquel Wade following his arrest for burglary in May. Hamilton, who was often overlooked while serving as an apprentice of sorts the last three seasons, said it's a task he and the rest of the Razorbacks are up for. ''A lot of guys want to make plays and go out there and do it because they've been a hidden secret for a couple of years,'' Hamilton said. ''They've been behind great players, so everybody is excited to go out there and make plays and really just make a name for themselves.'' Arkansas led the Southeastern Conference last year in passing offense for the third straight season, finishing 11-2 and winning the Cotton Bowl over Kansas State. The passing attack was anchored by Adams, Childs and Wright, who gave quarterback Tyler Wilson plenty of options and combined for 141 catches and 2,009 yards. All three were selected in the fourth round of April's NFL draft, leaving a gaping hole in production entering this season. - AP Sports

07/21/2012 - 2012 PRESEASON ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): WR - Cobi Hamilton, Arkansas...Hamilton made a career-high 34 receptions in 2011 for 542 yards and four touchdowns.

06/12/2012 - St. Matthew Baptist Church of Foreman played host to two University of Arkansas football stars Saturday evening as the church, in conjunction with the Community Alternative Prevention Program, held a cookout for area youth. Cobi Hamilton, a wide receiver for the Razorbacks, and Ronnie Wingo, running back, were on hand to sign autographs and just "hang out" with the young people present. According to the church's pastor, Ronnie Keener, Hamilton has strong family ties to Foreman. His grandfather was Oscar Hamilton, for whom the city's elementary school is named, and his grandmother and father still live there. Hamilton, a 2009 graduate of Texas High School in Texarkana, is a leading receiver for the Hogs. In his senior year in high school he set the single season receiving record for the Tigers and continues that level of play in Fayetteville. Of the opportunity to come back to his hometown Hamilton said, "It was a good opportunity to come here. My grandma lives right down the street. It's not every day that you can come down to my father's hometown and be an idol to some of the kids. It's just good to come back. I've got a lot of memories in this hometown, and it's just good to come back and see the kids here." Hamilton, who said he was fortunate to get immediate playing time as a freshman, also had advice for the young people present. He said, "The biggest thing is don't give up. It wasn't easy. Nothing's easy, so you gotta stay strong. Hamilton was accompanied Saturday evening by fellow Razorback Ronnie Wingo, a running back. - Jim Harris, Little River News

05/14/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Cobi Hamilton probably didn't get the respect he deserved playing in the shadows of Jarius Wright and Joe Adams. He had 34 receptions last year and has to step up as the No. 1 guy this fall. - The Sports Xchange
