New York Giants Draft: 5 Potential Odell Beckham Jr. Complements

Josh Doctson, TCU

TCU’s all time leading receiver will be on the radar of many teams. Standing at 6’2 and about 195 lbs, Doctson profiles as a steady WR2 in the pro game.

He doesn’t have the breakaway speed to blow by defenders (but by no means is slow). His terrific hands and leaping ability make him a safe target for QB’s, and he even has a knack for the one handed catch. Doctson played all 4 years at TCU, and is regarded as a high character individual, per CBS draft analyst Dane Brugler.

Similar to Coleman, Doctson comes from a spread offense which will raise red flags regardless of how well he performs at the combine. He’s not a physically imposing receiver who will come with some injury concerns, evidenced by a broken wrist which prematurely ended his senior season.

Bottom line: Doctson looks to be a security blanket for QB’s at the pro level and compliments Beckham nicely. He could start immediately for the New York Giants on the outside and fortify their red zone attack with his height. The spread offense he comes from likely keeps him out of the first round, making him an enticing day 2 selection.
