So they'll use Watson on the deep routes out of X and cross he'll draw a safety over and then exploit the D with guys like Lazard and Doubs. Could see those 3 in a 3 wide one back look a lot.
It's a good plan. Just hope these guys can actually execute.

“Romeo is a classic example of a guy who has competitive speed,” Norvell said. “If you take him out on the track, his times probably aren’t that impressive. But if you put him on the football field, he only has one speed. That’s the way he practices every day. He just works so hard, and every great receiver I’ve been around, that’s the quality they have. They practice as hard as they play.

“I’m not comparing him to Jerry Rice, but that was one of the qualities that Jerry Rice had. He didn’t have an impressive 40 time, but on the field nobody ever caught him, and he ran away from people. I think that’s a great quality Romeo has, and on game day he just seems faster than he does when you time him on a track.”

Scott said that might be downplaying Doubs’ speed as he’s consistently recorded a 4.4-second 40-yard dash, which is an above-average time for an NFL receiver. But it’s not the athleticism that endears Doubs to his team. It’s the person he is, his humble nature, his selfless attitude.“

Yes please.

Doubs will become a decent receiver in a couple of years. He'll be a work horse getting there. He might even flash some of it this year, in certain sets.
