The Green Bay Packers tried to get quarterback Aaron Rodgers another weapon with their first selection on day three of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Green Bay selected Nevada wide receiver Romeo Doubs in the fourth round on Saturday.
Doubs is coming off solid back-to-back seasons at Nevada that saw him eclipse 1,000 receiving yards in consecutive years.
The 6-foot-2 wide receiver has plenty of talent, but he’s unlikely to be a consistent starter in the NFL.
Doubs has good ball skills. And he’s an extremely competitive player. But he has some limitations that kept him from being a higher draft pick.
The former Nevada standout doesn’t have an extensive route tree and he struggled in college to separate from press coverage. It’s obviously not going to get any easier for Doubs in the NFL. Not being able to create separation is kind of like an inaccurate quarterback — it’s a really hard issue to fix.
Doubs has the look of an elite wide receiver. And he has the athleticism. But there are a few areas where he’s going to have to improve if he hopes to break into the Packers’ wide receiver rotation.
This isn’t a bad pick — Green Bay needed wide receiver depth. But it’s hard to see Doubs developing into an every-week starter.
