Video: Watch Former Wildcat Randall Cobb Walk Across Stage As Kentucky Graduate

It wasn't necessary, but it was something he wanted to accomplish. 

Former Kentucky football star and current Green Bay Packers star receiver Randall Cobb walked across the stage Sunday afternoon as a graduate of the University of Kentucky. Despite making millions in the NFL, Cobb has been taking classes to finish up his degree. 

On Sunday, he was able to celebrate.

His friend and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was also in the house to watch Cobb walk across that stage during graduation.
