Former University of Kentucky star Randall Cobb finds the NFL lockout frustrating, but says he's anxious to get his NFL career started.

Cobb told WVLT-TV in Knoxville that he's been busy training in Phoenix, Los Angeles and Florida. The Green Bay Packers selected the former high school star from Alcoa in the second-round of April's draft.

Cobb says the workouts are aimed at being ready as soon as he can sign a contract after the lockout ends.

Once a contract with the Packers is signed, Cobb says, he plans on funding a college scholarship for high-school athletes. At some point in his career, he's also interested in giving back to the Alcoa football program.
