Romeo Doubs | Nevada 6’2” 201 lbs. | 4/13/2000 (Age 22)
Romeo Doubs was drafted with the 27th pick in the fourth round by the Green Bay Packers, becoming the 19th wide receiver and 132nd overall player in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Doubs had over 1,000 yards receiving in both his junior and senior seasons, with 138 receptions and 20 TDs for the Wolf Pack during that time.
Doubs shows a lot of positive traits in his highlight film, from sideline awareness to ball tracking skills to separation ability. He shows solid hands as well. Nothing really stands out as elite.
He did not participate in the Combine due to a knee injury but is widely considered to be highly athletic, with words like “twitchy”, “suddenness”, “explosive” and “slippery” being used to describe his game. He was able to participate at this Pro Day, however, and posted a 34” vertical and 10’4” broad jump to go with forty times in the 4.47 – 4.53 range, according to this.
His athleticism is one of his better traits and is likely to translate well to the NFL.
Rapid Reaction to Draft Capital: Average
Rapid Reaction to Landing Spot: Great
Doubs was selected with the 132nd overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft by the Packers.
Green Bay has now drafted two wide receivers for Aaron Rodgers within the first four rounds. Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs could both compete for fantasy-relevant roles in year one, despite the day three draft capital for Doubs. In this analyst’s opinion, fourth-round picks are more similar to third-round picks than they are to fifth or sixth-rounders. Targets are earned and the Packers have plenty of targets to earn. I would also point out that Watson comes with perhaps more question marks than Doubs in terms of his talent. It is not outside the realm of reasonable outcomes that Doubs could emerge as the main receiving target in this offense. There may be room for both if not.
Doubs has been one of my favorite sleeper receivers coming into this draft. I took Rodgers in a SuperFlex startup this month and managed to pair him with Doubs as my last skill position pick in the 19th round. I will consider Doubs to be a priority sleeper pick for me in redraft and Bestball as well. I expect him to go somewhere in the late second or early third in rookie drafts.
Stay sharp out there and remember, you only have to be better than half your leaguemates on average to be a perennial playoff team. Let’s keep balling! Look for more of my articles soon.
