4/132. Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada (3, 4): This wasn’t a stellar class of wide receivers — at the top, in the middle or at the end. Partially because the Packers were desperate and the pool at the position was shrinking fast, they decided to take a fourth-round flier on him.

Doubs (6-2, 204) has the size the Packers almost demand at the position and was one of the last able big men on the board. There were some interesting slots available at the time (Calvin Austin, Khalil Shakir, Kyle Philips), but the Packers might think they have that covered with Cobb and Rodgers.

It took until almost mid-April for Doubs to run for teams, and his 40 time of 4.53 was solid for his size and being the 19th wideout selected. He was a prolific producer for the Wolf Pack, a four-year starter with 225 receptions, a 14.8 average and 26 TDs.

His offseason, however, wasn’t good, starting with an uneven week at the Senior Bowl. Then, after being weighed and measured at the combine, he experienced what one scout labeled an “anxiety meltdown” and didn’t participate after the opening day. He didn’t work at pro day, either, before finally agreeing to work out for scouts. Several teams agreed that Doubs will require extra attention from his new employer in order to navigate pro football. One personnel man said Doubs was a good kid and worth the organizational commitment. Another said Doubs’ need for learning and life-skills development combined with the delayed testing led his team to move on.

Doubs was a punt returner all four years, bringing back 37 for a 12.5 average. The Packers prioritized finding a far more dynamic return man than Rodgers. Cornerback Marcus Jones of Houston was a prime target, but that opportunity vanished when he went seven slots before Rhyan.

1) SEC
2) SEC
2) Small School but large body size
3) Pac-12
4) Small School but large body size
4) ACC
5) SEC
7) ACC
7) ACC
7) Big 10
7) Big 10

Once again, large majority SEC, Big 10 and ACC from Gute and I think all of them are good sized for their position other than maybe the 7th round LB but he was a S and expected to play a LB/S tweener role.

I believe Gute has only selected two players in the top four rounds outside of the SEC, Big 10 and ACC, those being QB Love and TE Dugara. So Gute more than doubled it with this draft, having WR Watson, OL Rhyan and WR Doubs.

Though Rhyan is from the Pac-12, so not a small school, but I think the highest Pac-12 player, I believe beating out 5th round pick OL Cole Madison.

Speed (average hands) for kick return.

The more interesting part is the DBs have good hands for punt return but not for catching when they played on offense at a lower level lol

I like Romeo Doubs more with each passing day. I want Romeo and Christian focused solely on WR and working on the offense with LaFleur and Aaron.

I don't want Bisaccia bothering them with teams. He has plenty of options for returners. He can keep his cheeto stained hands off my golden boy WRs.

All we need is one of these cats tearing a ACL in a teams drill. I am not one that likes using starters(Yes Romeo and Christian are starters to me) on special teams.

Yes, teams was complete disaster under Mo Drayton, I would hope that cheeto fingers can run the show successfully without valuable starters.

I call Rich cheeto fingers out of love. He for sure always rocks the crunchy and never jams the puffs.

The more I watch Romeo, the more he reminds me of a young Sterling Sharpe.

Martha, had he squared that off more the ball would have been even further behind him than it already was.

The ball was late and behind him. Danny Etling that clown probably threw that.😌

Yes, the ball was late and behind him. So what?
That has nothing to do with whether or not the route was proper. He should’ve squared it off.
Go Packers!!!!
