Pro Football Focus Grades Josh Doctson Pick An 'A'

Josh Doctson didn't fail to impress and turn heads in his three years at TCU.

His numbers rose exponentially, and with that spike in production, Doctson ended up on a lot of NFL teams'radars, including the Washington Redskins, who dropped down one spot (No. 22) in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft in order to select him.

*Pro Football Focus *Senior Analyst Steve Palazzolo graded out each and every first-round selection from Thursday night, and he was impressed with Washington’s move to get Doctson, giving the team an "A" for their efforts.

"After moving back a spot, Washington gets one of the draft's best receivers in Doctson, whose 28.9 receiving grade led the nation in 2015. Doctson has incredible body control, making downfield catches over defenders with regularity and separating well in the intermediate game. TCU quarterbacks had a passer rating of 149.2 when targeting Doctson last year — the best in the nation — and he ranked third in the country with 17 catches on deep passes (20 yards in air). His ball skills will give him a chance to become the most productive deep threat in the draft, even better than the faster Fuller. Doctson's catch radius will make Redskins QB Trent Williams look even better and he adds yet another dimension to an already well-rounded passing game."
