Jordan Love has a new go-to guy at Wide Receiver

Currently, second-year wideout Christian Watson holds the position of wide receiver one on the Packers’ depth chart. However, it appears that his reign may be temporary. Reports from Packers practices indicate that another second-year wideout may soon surpass him.

That receiver is Romeo Doubs, who is swiftly emerging as Jordan Love‘s preferred target during off-season practices.



Doubs was a fourth-round pick out of Nevada last season and showed promise with Aaron Rodgers under center. He had 67 targets, 42 receptions, 425 receiving yards, and three touchdowns during his rookie campaign. Those numbers would have been higher, but he injured his ankle early in November, keeping him out of four full games.

ESPN analyst Rob Demovsky listed Doubs as the Packers player causing the most buzz this offseason:

While Christian Watson got most of the attention for his big plays late last season, Doubs has seemingly become quarterback Jordan Love’s go-to guy — at least in the offseason practices. Whether it’s in scripted team periods or move-the-ball drills like the two-minute simulation, Doubs has been targeted time and again. Don’t forget, it was Doubs who starred last preseason when Love got all the No. 1 reps in the games because Aaron Rodgers didn’t play. And Doubs was off to a strong start last year as a rookie until a midseason ankle injury changed his trajectory. — Rob Demovsky

Jordan Love has also spoken very highly of Doubs all offseason, recently saying:

“When in doubt, you can throw it out there, and you know he’s going to make a play, and he’s done a great job of going and getting the ball wherever it’s at… He’s made some really tough catches, and it kind of just builds everybody’s confidence. It builds my confidence in him, just being able to throw the ball out there and know he’s going to make a play.”



Just because Doubs is emerging. doesn’t t mean that Watson won’t also play a large role in this offense. Watson had similar numbers to Doubs last season, putting up 66 targets, 41 receptions, 611 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns.

Regardless of who ultimately claims the top spot, it is highly encouraging to witness the showcased potential of both these wide receivers—an affirmation of the talents many had anticipated from them.
