QUOTEBOOK

TCU WR Josh Doctson

On how he became an elite pass catcher…

"What helped me the most I think was playing basketball out of high school.  Hoops helped me with timing of jumping, and catching the ball. And then finding the rim definitely took a lot of hand-eye coordination. That helped correlate over very well for me. Timing in football, knowing when to time my jump to where I could get the best catch, naturally my body knows when to jump."

On his biggest strength…

"My biggest strength as a football player is catching the ball. That's what I am supposed to do. It doesn't matter the situation. If the pass is behind me, doesn't matter where it's at, I am going to catch it. I am a guy that is a consistent deep threat that will make the big catch and the big play when we need it."

On routes he needs to learn…

"Routes that I didn't run in college mainly were double moves .I would say routes that were for the inside position, like the slot position, I didn't run much."

Notre Dame WR Will Fuller

On how important it means to be the fastest receiver in the draft…

"It's real important. My team as a whole at Notre Dame, I've been looked at as a deep-threat type of guy. I've heard that throughout the time I've been training. So I've been training hard to get the best speed time that I can."

On why he declared for the draft…

"Just with the year we had, a lot of injuries, for a healthy career I just wanted to get out of there while I was healthy and still put up good numbers this year. I thought it was at a good time. I was healthy and no injuries."

On how he is improving his hands…

"Definitely doing JUGS work. Not just standing still but attacking the JUGS (machine). That's the biggest thing. I've talked to plenty of receivers coaches and they've said how I want to attack the ball when it's in the air. That's a big thing that I've been working on is attacking the ball and not letting it eat me up."

Ohio State WR Braxton Miller

On what he wants to show teams at the Combine…

"Just consistency. Everything they ask for I'm going to give 110%. Whatever they need, I'm going to do. Catching over the head, run routes, run the 40, all of that."

On switching from QB to WR…

"I love it. I'm just thankful to play football again. I'm out here doing what I love to do and putting everything in God's hands. That's what I've been doing, just perfecting my craft. I want to be one of the best. That's what I've been doing since I switched positions."

On how playing QB helps him at WR…

"A lot. Reading defenses, how you can point out things even before the play even starts. That's what the team was surprised about. I know it all from playing quarterback. It ties into receiver a lot, too."
