2016 NFL Draft: Josh Doctson Is Perfect Fit for Houston Texans – by Nick Ziegler NFL Spin Zone
"While Coleman would be a great pick for the Texans as well coming off a 20-touchdown season at Baylor, the size of Doctson is appealing to the next level. Doctson is 6’3” and 195lbs, which would provide Osweiler with a freakishly athletic duo at wide receiver.In three seasons at TCU, Doctson totaled 2,794 receiving yards, 179 receptions, and 29 receiving touchdowns. In his senior season, Doctson made a nice leap forward, as he totaled 78 receptions, 1,326 receiving yards, and 14 receiving touchdowns."
