Welcome Josh Doctson [WR TCU]

Welcome to the Washington Redskins - Josh Doctson, WR TCU

With the 22nd pick in round 1, the Washington Redskins select Josh Doctson, wide receiver out of TCU.  This is an awesome pick in that both Garcon and Jackson are in the last years of their contract and this is a pick focused on the future.  Many argue he is the best WR in the draft with his size and catch radius.  There will not be extra pressure on him right away with an already full wr corps but expecting 2017 to look something like Doctson WR1, Jackson WR2, Crowder Slot, Reed TE.

DRAFT ANALYSIS:
"They're going to get some weapons around quarterback Kirk Cousins, who got the franchise tag. Doctson is very much like Jordan Matthews of the Eagles. Both are faster than people give them credit for. Doctson surprised a lot of people at the combine when he ran a 4.5 40." -- Daniel Jeremiah

SOURCES TELL US
"Pure technician. He's really good with those routes and he's the best at getting it up top. When he got hurt, TCU was done. They looked lost without him. He's a safe receiver for the first (round) and one of the only ones." -- AFC wide receivers coach

BOTTOM LINE
Highly productive receiver with good height but in need of more functional mass for the NFL game. Doctson must prove he can play against press coverage if he is to reach his potential, but his ability to go up and win when the ball is in the air will endear him to quarterbacks. Scouts don't expect to be wowed by his 40 ­time, but most believe he'll be a solid No. 2 receiver in the league.
