Doubs is a vertical specialist who demands the respect of a defense and clears the middle even when he isn’t targeted.
Doubs is the definition of a true vertical threat. Doubs has a high-cut 6’2 frame and uses this to really open up his stride and hit a true second gear downfield. Very good vertical separator who stacks DB’s downfield with an innate feel for keeping on defenders back. Juice to separate vertically, but also capable of stopping on a dime. Doubs has inside/outside versatility and a clean release package when allowed to release freely. Doubs uses angles very well and has a good feel for where space is as a receiver. Doubs thinks like a safety and will tailor his routes to create 1V1 opportunities for himself and force safeties to commit early. On vertical routes, Doubs shows the ability to high point with a wide catch radius. His ability to take a top off of a defense opens up the underneath stuff for other receivers. 4.45-4.50 runner whose speed plays up after 20 yards. Should draw plenty of flags once he gets going.
Not a complete receiver. Pigeon-holed into a vertical threat currently. Doubs has a very thin frame for his listed weight and is not a physical receiver. Does not like contact and seems to struggle in congested areas. Can contort his body well when given a longer time to adjust, but struggles there on sub 15 air yard targets. Can get YAC on screens if allowed to freely open up stride and work angles, but not a creative or physical runner with the ball in his hands. Will need to be schemed into plenty of space and hit in stride to be a true YAC threat. Doubs has notable issues with drops and had some ugly misses in 2020. Not a good contested catch receiver. Left meat on the bone despite production. 2nd gear is amazing, but takes a bit to get there. Doubs seldom faced press and I have concerns about his ability to handle it if asked to play outside. Offers very little as a run blocker. Level of competition couldn’t hang with him athletically, NFL DB will be able to.
Doubs is a pure vertical threat for better or worse. As such, I'd like to see him add some mass and physicality to his game. I have my worries about how he will handle press and if he can handle DB who can match him athletically and force him to play more physically. That said, Doubs offers truly electric vertical ability that will play right away in the NFL and demands the safety respect to stretch the field and open up his teammates. He’s the type of receiver that inflates his teammates' numbers. Right now, he’s more of a high-end 4, vertical 3 that should see 3-5 high-value targets a game. But if he can add physicality and intermediate route value, he has a chance to be a starter at the next level. High floor player with a solid ceiling.

10/25/21 – In an exciting Mountain West showdown between Nevada and Fresno State, it was the Bulldogs who could squeeze out a 34-32 victory. The most impressive player on the field, however, was wide receiver Romeo Doubs for the Wolf Pack. The senior wideout caught nineteen passes for 203 yards and a touchdown, serving as Carson Strong’s go-to target. On the two-point conversion to tie the game, Doubs did end up getting pushed out of bounds before he could get his feet in bounds. “He’s just such an amazing competitor,” Nevada Head Coach Jay Norvell said after the game. “He’s so confident now that he can make plays in any situation against any kind of coverage and Carson (Strong) just has so much confidence in him.” Doubs combines size and speed to be a deep threat with his hands and consistency improved in 2021, providing him great potential in an NFL offense.
05/05/21 - Every great quarterback needs a great receiver, and Doubs is the yin to Strong's yang. At 6-2, Doubs has excellent size to go with great game speed. There's a debate over how fast a 40-yard dash he'll run, but he simply looks faster than anybody he lines up against. Doubs had a breakout 2020, catching 58 balls for 1,002 yards and nine touchdowns. There's no questioning his deep-ball ability, but he'll have to continue to evolve as an all-around receiver to vault up draft boards. But he's going to be selected. (NSN)
