2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Josh Doctson, WR, TCU
By Lijah Spencer (@tweaked74)
Continuing on in scouting notes we take a look at a player who may well be in the running for the top WR prospect in the big 12. As always these notes are based off from last year’s film and will precede the full scouting report that will come after I view games from the upcoming season. Here are my notes:
Josh Doctson. 6’3. 195 Lbs. WR. TCU. Senior
1) Very good hands
2) Good ball skills (tracking and catching the ball at difficult angles)
3) Good speed
1) Route running is ok, but needs improvement.
2) Blocking also needs improvements
Josh Doctson is a wide receiver out of T.C.U who possesses the prototypical NFL frame, standing at 6’3 195 Lbs. He has good speed, but where Doctson really shines is with his ball skills. He often makes catches with a very high degree of difficulty, whether that be over the shoulder or one handed snags, he come down with the ball almost every time. His route running however is not very crisp or complex at this point, and his run blocking will have to be improved in order to be an every down receiver in the NFL. Last season he amassed 65 catches, for a school record of 1,018 yards, and 11 TD’s. With another solid season, and improvement in his route running and blocking, Doctson should have a good chance to earn a spot in next April’s Draft.
