The good and the bad from Romeo Doubs
For the most part, Romeo Doubs’ training camp has been highly encouraging. He has repeatedly made big plays, showing off his route-running and ability to win 50/50 balls. The two most notable areas of concern are drops and his blocking.
The good news is that they are both teachable and areas he can improve.
We saw both the good and the bad from Doubs in practice on Tuesday.
Doubs’ biggest play was an impressive touchdown catch, as noted by Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com.
However, he also had a big drop.
After getting open and receiving a perfect pass from Aaron Rodgers, the rookie couldn’t make the play.
The good news is that Doubs got in position to make the play. He did the hard part, which was getting open against a talented and experienced cornerback in Bradley Roby.
Doubs just needs to clean up the drops. Having safe hands is a key part of earning Aaron Rodgers’ trust. Rodgers needs to know he can count on his receivers to make plays when he looks their way.
Still, the positives far outweigh the negatives. If Doubs can fix his drops issues, he could be set for a huge rookie season. Don’t forget, Ja’Marr Chase struggled with drops last summer. Fast forward to February, and he was named a second-team All-Pro, NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and played in the Super Bowl.
