Green Bay Packers fourth-round pick Romeo Doubs has more than turned heads during training camp.
So much so that he caught the attention of quarterback Aaron Rodgers right away.
“Every single day there’s been at least one ‘wow’ play from him. That’s rare for a young guy like that,” Rodgers said last week. “Now, we’ve had some guys over the years do that but they’re all in the top ten I think in Packers receiving history.”
Doubs, himself, has said that even with the plays he’s made, he always tries to stay in the moment with Rodgers.
“I’m just making sure I soak up any little thing he tells me,” Doubs said.
“That trust just has to keep growing,” he added.
With Doubs already impressing players, coaches, and media alike this early on, one should expect him to make even more plays in the pre-season, eventually landing him a spot on the team’s final 53-man roster.
It’s obvious to this point that Rodgers has grown fond of Doubs’ play-making abilities in practice, but now it’s a matter of translating that to the playing field in real game situations. From what we’ve seen and heard about Doubs, things look to be trending in the right direction.
With a crowded wide receiver room right now, certain players will likely have to step up in order to make the final cut roster wise.
So far, soaking in the little things, combined with the plays made thus far is making him stand out amongst his draftees. Doubs has definitely warranted himself as a starting caliber wide receiver but it’s going to be up to him to maintain the same level of play into the pre-season and possibly beyond depending what happens afterwards.
Speaking of, the Packers will be playing their first pre-season game against the San Francisco 49ers on August 12. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT in Levi’s Stadium.
