Josh Doctson

#09 Josh Doctson

DRAFT CLASS:  SR/2016

POSITION: Wide Receiver (WR)

SCHOOL: TCU

HEIGHT:  6-2    

WEIGHT:  202

40 Time:  4.50

STRENGTHS

  • He possesses a good build with room for growth moving forward to the NFL…and with a confident body language to have the ball come his direction when his team needs a big play
  • He displays excellent short area movement & feet…which allows him to consistently gain short area separation versus defenders
  • He displays good concentration & focus…along with the eye/hand coordination tracking balls looked for
  • He displays a wide catching radius as a pure hands catcher…frequently showing the skill to catch balls away from his body
  • His willingness to catch balls in traffic…and ability to consistently catch balls with defenders applying tight coverage makes him the consummate chains mover
  • There can’t be enough emphasis put on a WR like himself who CONSISTENTLY catches balls thrown his direction…which is a big deal moving forward to the NFL level

 

 

 

WEAKNESSES

  • His build & body maturity is not where it needs to be….needs more physical maturity & additional weight to his frame as a finished product…which can cause durability concerns
  • His overall athleticism is in question…especially for where he is projected to be selected
  • When it comes to threatening defenses down the field on deep balls he looks challenged to do so on a consistent basis projecting him to the NFL level
  • Lacks the physical strength & overall athleticism needed at the NFL level to consistently gain substantial yards after contact…and why here he is projected as #2/WR at NFL level
  • Unless he catches balls on the move he doesn’t display the ability for the big play needed on short passes…and turning them into big chunk yardage gains

SUMMARY

  • Though there is a place for Doctson as a starter in league…teams need to be realistic on his ceiling of play and not get caught up with his press clippings coming out of the collegiate ranks.
