Ja’Khi Douglas is a guy I highlighted several weeks ago, and what’s possible with him at the wide receiver position.
He was the most consistent option in the spring outside of Mycah Pittman. I still don’t understand why the coaching staff had him split between wide receiver and running back last year.
Nevertheless, Douglas appeared in all 12 games but had seven games where he didn’t record a reception. The crazy part? He finished third on the team with 14 receptions for 255 yards and one touchdown.
His 18.2 yards per reception was No. 1 on the team, and Douglas became a goto target over the final three games. 10 of those 14 receptions and 174 receiving yards came in those final three games.
That’s a three-game average of three receptions and 58 yards for a 17.8 yards per reception average. FSU’s offensive line should be better, and the coaching staff wants Jordan Travis to do more damage from the pocket with his arm when possible.
Douglas is one of the few guys on the team with the speed to stretch the field vertically. He could be an impact guy for the Noles in 2022 with more opportunities.
