Position rank: Top 5
Overall rank: Top 32
Outside wide receiver
Stat to know:
At 4.07, no player averaged more yards per route run at wide receiver in this draft class
What he does best:
• Tremendous leaping ability
• Good hands, dropped just six of the 84 catchable passes thrown his way in 2015
• Can out muscle defensive backs
• With size and physicality, is a nightmare to cover on slants. Uses his body well to shield the ball from defensive backs
• Had the highest PFF receiving grade of any receiver in college football in 2015
• Deep speed is good, not great
• Likewise, ability to separate is good but not great
Doctson does a lot of things very well, and while he might not have elite speed, few receivers in this draft class can go up and win a ball quite like him.
