Doctson had a strong 2014 campaign with with 65 reception with for 1,018 yards and 11 tds. He improved this past season with 79 receptions for 1,327 yards and 14 tds.
Josh Doctson was the main guy in TCU’s explosive offense. Docton is a route running machine. He excels in small areas of the field. He’ll fit well in a scheme that will allow him to run routes underneath other guys running deep patterns. One of those “quicker than fast” guys that are becoming more popular in the NFL. The majority of this wide receiver class lacked elite speed. I think Doctson will benefit from that because of his style of play. Let him make quick cuts across the field and give him the opportunity to create space opposed to beating a defender deep.
Doctson does a great job controlling his body, hips, and pads. He will need to use his hands more at the line of scrimmage.
When you look at the elite guys at the next level, they all have form and technique paired with athleticism. Josh Doctson has exactly that. I think he’s a top two receiver in this class.
