“Going into Year 2, I’m playing a lot faster,'” Doubs said. “So I don’t want to say comfortable, because I know being comfortable comes with some sort of complacent area. But just humbly speaking, I’m playing a lot faster.”
Green Bay selected Doubs in the fourth round of last year's draft. He played in 13 games as a rookie, starting seven. He caught 42 passes for 425 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Packers' receiving core is young and unproven. Incredibly, Green Bay does not have a single receiver with more than one year on an active NFL roster. Doubs and fellow second-year wideout Christian Watson are the most experienced and the two that will likely have to step up the most this season.
Some Packers fans may feel uneasy about the offense this season, but hearing Doubs say that he feels faster and having him standout in OTAs has to ease the tension a bit. He also said that he's starting to build solid chemistry with new starting quarterback Jordan Love.
The Packers are starting a new era with uncertainty surrounding the team. It remains to be seen whether players like Romeo Doubs will turn into impact players for Green Bay this season and beyond, but starting out right in offseason practice is the first sign of positive change in the Packers' locker room.
