Overview

Doughty is a very intelligent athlete with excellent size and range. He is especially effective defending vs. the run and shows natural hands to make the interception. Doughty is an instinctive player with the feet and desire to make plays. He scans the field and reacts quickly to the ball. He has also excelled in the classroom, boasting a 4.0 grade point average. The unquestioned leader of the team is also involved in community affairs and is very active in the school's Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter.

Doughty was a consensus first-team All-State selection by the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post, helping Roosevelt High School to a Class 2A state runner-up finish in 2000. He recorded 19 tackles in that championship game and had 116 for the season as a senior. Doughty ranked second in the state (class 2A) with eight interceptions and was also an excellent kicker, leading the Class 2A with 61 points (52 extra points, three field goals). He was twice named to the All-Conference team in football and also earned All-Conference honors in basketball and track.

Having married his high school sweetheart, the local product decided to attend Northern Colorado. He redshirted in 2001, performing on the scout team as a strong safety. Doughty shifted to free safety in 2002, going on to start every game during his first three years with the team. He earned All-North Central Conference second-team and Academic All-NCC first-team honors as a redshirt freshman. On the field, he led the team with 104 tackles (53 solos) despite missing the Augustana contest with a left quadriceps contusion. He added an assisted sack, six stops for losses and a fumble recovery in 2002. He also had four interceptions and deflected nine passes.

In 2003, Doughty again led the team with 87 tackles (53 solos). He had four stops behind the line of scrimmage, four deflected passes and a fumble recovery. Doughty was named to the inaugural All-Great West Conference first-team in 2004. He ranked second on the team with 116 tackles (65 solos) with a sack and six stops for losses. He caused two fumbles and recovered another while intercepting six passes and deflecting two others. He also blocked a pair of kicks.

In 35 games with the Bears, Doughty collected 307 tackles (171 solos), ranking seventh on the school's career-record list. 69 of those tackles came on third-down plays. He added another 30 stops on the kick coverage units. He had 1.5 sacks for minus-8 yards and 15 stops for losses of 39 yards. Doughty caused two fumbles and recovered three others. Doughty's ten interceptions ranked tied for tenth in UNC history. He also deflected 18 passes and blocked a pair of kicks.



Analysis

Positives: Has a big frame with room to carry at least another ten pounds of bulk and muscle...Shows good read and diagnose skills vs. plays in front of him...Plays at a good pad level, showing balance and agility to slip past and avoid blocks working through trash...Has a very good feel for the receiver in patterns, using his hands effectively to press his opponent and delay the route's progression...Gets a good jump on the ball and is rarely fooled by play action and misdirection, doing a good job of reading the quarter-back's arm motion to get in position quickly in order to make the play...Shows steady acceleration and while more quick than fast, he knows how to take proper angles to shorten the field and close...Times his leaps well and has natural hands to extend for the ball away from the body's frame...Maintains concentration battling for the jump ball and has the big hands needed to properly secure the pigskin...Plays off the blocks with good hand usage and shows urgency coming off the edge in backside pursuit...His awareness of the receiver in the deep zone allows him to keep the plays in front of him...Backpedals with ease and does not take any wasted steps in transition.

Negatives: Has a big frame, but needs to add strength, especially in his chest and shoulder area...Must refine his tackling technique, as he is prone to making the low side tackle rather than squaring up, wrapping and securing...Needs to do a better job of opening his hips, as he looks a bit sluggish in his plant and drive action...Does not explode into his hits, but compensates by being in position to make the play...Does not show the second gear needed to recover when beaten...His failure to redirect out of his breaks causes him to lose relationship with receivers when going deep in man coverage (best when working the short and intermediate areas).

Doughty has been a highly productive player for the Bears. While he lacks ideal foot speed and upper body strength, he compensates with solid ball reaction skills and field instincts. He is not really explosive coming out of his breaks, but compensates with good downhill skills, coming up with aggression to make plays in front of him. He excels in run force and has the hand usage to defeat and slip off blocks when working through trash. He has very good success with his rip and swim moves to play off blocks and attack the ball. He is not a punishing tackler, as he tends to give a low side hit rather than wrap up, but shows very good ability to break down in space and get his target down.

While he lacks explosion out of his backpedal, he can cover ground due to his ability to take proper angles in order to shorten the field. He is very alert to receivers through their routes and will rarely bite on play-action and misdirection. He does a very good job of reading the quarterback's arm motion and uses his hands effectively to jam and reroute receivers at the line of scrimmage.

He is best when working inside the box. He plays at a good pad level and has the field awareness to sniff out blocking schemes and get to the edge to shut down the inside rush. Doughty shows a great desire to make the play. He consistently plays until the whistle and shows good timing off the corner to close on plays in front of him. He shows no hesitation stepping up and filling the rush lanes. He charges hard to finish, but needs to refine his tackling technique, as he will give a low side tackle rather than get physical to wrap and secure.

Man coverage is not his strong suit. He lacks explosion to burst and close, but does a good job of maintaining relationship with the receiver, using his hands to delay the opponent's route progression. He needs to flip his hips while turning and changing direction when working on deep routes. Even though he does not explode out of his breaks, he shows good balance and does not have any wasted motion in transition. He is capable of shadowing his man in short coverage, but until he improves his hip snap, he has to rely on taking proper angles to the ball.

He is a very capable zone coverage defender. He sees the field and reacts instinctively to plays in front of him. Doughty has a good feel when handling the switch-off and gets a good jump on the ball because he does not waste time watching the quarterback (reacts to the passer's arm motion instead).

Doughty is a fearless performer on special teams, doing a good job of timing his leaps to block kicks. He also knows how to utilize his vertical skills to get to the ball at its high point. He has natural hands for the interception, extending properly from the body's frame to pluck the ball. He attacks the ball with aggression and knows how to step in front of the receiver to make the play.

Doughty's field instincts and intelligence are evident by his ability to make good reads and call assignments from the secondary. He needs to refine his body to add more bulk and upper body strength. He might lack the blazing speed you look for in a deep coverage defender, but I feel all he has to do is spend some time with a good trainer who can help him open his hips. He is always in position to make the play, and has the intangibles to be a nice mid-round find.

Not bad. You just wonder (more than any of the hyped prospects) how the attributes he does have tranlate into the NFL.

he racked up production stats against I-AA players. the production is still there, but you gotta consider the competition wasn't always amazing.

Hmm, I know we needed a backup to groom at safety, but you have to wonder how the transition goes from a player who faced Division I-AA competition in college to NFL receivers.

Andre Lott was taken higher, in the 4th I believe, and his career never had a chance. Not saying Doughtry will suffer the same fate, but I suppose anything has to be an improvement over Matt Bowen.

Re: 2006 Draft - Reed Doughty (FS) - extensive profile

This is a good pick for us. Production guys are what we need. I think Williams has shown the ability to take lesser athletes and turn them into producers. This seems like a real strong pick for us down the road but initially he will be a special teamer if he makes the team. Antonio Pierce was once rated lower than this guy and look what Williams did with him.

Seems like a smart player just like Pierce.

Re: 2006 Draft - Reed Doughty (FS) - extensive profile

I'm just surprised 2 people I wanted made the team (a montgomery, r doughty)... I wanted to get them later, and i didn't expect matui and mcphearson to be around and passed over either

I do like the 3 players, but we gave up on better talent to get all 3. Hopefully by the end of the year these guys dominate and the guys we passed on are out of the league, but i'm not really sure it'll work out that way.

Re: 2006 Draft - Reed Doughty (FS) - extensive profile

i'm a BIG fan of production players in the late rounds. mike hass was a production player, chriss cooley was a production player. guys that were projects for 4 years in college and are STILL under producing projects by draft time are hard to project as suddenly turning that light on against much better competition.

Yeah when Archuleta gets hurt we could suit up "I" Doughty "makes the team" with Archuleta's own jersey just to trick opposing teams not running or throwing his way. But then again, who's avoiding Archuleta?

Re: 2006 Draft - Reed Doughty (FS) - extensive profile

Smart guy with size and up side. Great special teams player. They say his strength is defending the run. If so, sounds like he might develop into a guy that could back up both FS and SS positions. That is a huge plus.
Give this guys a year and 10-15 more pounds of muscle and he will a great 6th round value pick. In the mean time he will be a great special teams player.

Re: 2006 Draft - Reed Doughty (FS) - extensive profile

His play on specials will allow him to make the team--we'll see if he can develope into a legit backup at safety.

GW loves to have a lot of safeties around.

Our next pick is coming up at #196.

I'd like to see an offensive tackle this time.
