As much as anyone, the Redskins need 2016 first-round pick Josh Doctson to take a significant step forward. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound receiver played just two games as a rookie due to recurring Achilles’ tendon injuries that began during that offseason. A pulled hamstring last August further slowed his development and he finished the 2017 season with 35 catches for 502 yards and six touchdowns. This is his first fully healthy offseason as a professional.
Doctson said he “absolutely” feels in a better place this year, is able to run full sprints and everything else and wants to be more efficient, according to the story. He certainly showed signs last year of why the Skins took him in the 2016 draft, showing size and physicality. He's expected to start opposite of Paul Richardson this year with Alex Smith as the team's new QB.
