The Green Bay Packers choose to double-dip at the wide receiver position to kick off day three. Adding to their selection of Christian Watson a night ago, the team selected Nevada’s Romeo Doubs with the 132nd pick. A dynamic player over his four years with the program, the senior racked up 80 catches for 1,109 yards and 11 touchdowns a year ago. This led him to earn First team All-Mountain West honors. Primarily a deep threat, he has the ability to run by opposing defensive backs down the sidelines. Along with this, the Los Angeles, California, native can also win in short areas on screens, comebacks, and hitch routes.

Possessing the ability to go up and win 50/50 balls in the air, he is strong at the catch point. Along with this, he will also bring added versatility to Matt Lafleur’s offense by lining up both in the slot and on the boundary.
A proven special teams player, Doubs handled punt return duties for the Wolf Pack over the last two seasons. He has the size and strength to make opposing defenders miss in the open field. The 22-year-old amassed 270 yards on 11 runbacks over the last two seasons while averaging nearly 12 yards per return.
