Josh Doctson was a three-star recruit from Mansfield Legacy HS in Mansfield, Texas. He committed to play for Wyoming over Duke and Tulsa. After his 2011 season with Wyoming, he elected to transfer to TCU to play for the Horned Frogs and was forced to sit out the 2012 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He slowly became one of TCU’s best receivers and was a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award in 2015 while earning Consensus All-American Honors. He enters the 2016 NFL Draft as one of the top wide receiver prospects in the draft.

Keeps eyes in the backfield when play breaks down working to get open for his quarterback.
Trouble separating from press coverage

Great endzone target for fade routes with good hip flexibility to make in air adjustment turning his entire body.

Skilled handfighter deep into routes to make sure he has separation to move.
Catches in traffic extremely well.
Josh Doctson is the master of body control. If there is any trait that defines him it is his ability to turn and make mid-air adjustments on deep passes or on the sideline. With this trait, Doctson will immediately be beneficial to quarterbacks in the endzone running fade routes or on crucial 3rd down conversions.
To go along with body control, Doctson led all wide receivers in the vertical jump and broad jump. He consitently demonstrates an ability to use that to his advantage and create on high thrown balls.
