The Green Bay Packers are short a proven No. 1 pass catcher on the roster, but they may have had the weapon they need in the wide receiver room all along.
A rookie has stolen the show on offense during the first week-plus of training camp, though it hasn’t been the one some Packers fans probably thought it was going to be.
While second-round pick Christian Watson has been sidelined since June after undergoing knee surgery, fourth-round selection Romeo Doubs has been lighting it up daily at practice.
Everyone from the field to the front office has taken notice, including Doubs’ new quarterback and two-time reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, who had strong praise for the newcomer when he spoke with the media following practice on Wednesday, August 3.
“Every single day, there’s been at least one ‘wow’ play from him,” Rodgers said of Doubs. “That’s kind of rare for a young guy like that. Now, we’ve had some guys over the years do that, but they’re all in the top 10 in Packers receiving history.”
