Patriots Rookie WR Demario Douglas Shreds Another Veteran

Demario Douglas seems to be ready to teach each and every New England Patriots veteran and his dominance on the football field is wild.

The rookie wide receiver is a real star in training camp and he is one of the brightest stars on Bill Belichick’s roster. Well, this young guy shocked his teammates on Tuesday and DB Myles Bryant was no exception.

Douglas lined up against Bryant on Tuesday and needed just four steps to leave Bryant behind. It was a great move and Douglas ended up catching a nice throw from third-year quarterback Mac Jones.

Demario Douglas will use the opportunity he was given by the Patriots

In his four years at Liberty, Douglas had 2,193 yards receiving on 171 catches to go with 16 touchdowns. HERO sports reported that Douglas was able to run a 4.44 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and ranked fourth with his 11-foot-2-inch broad jump. The young receiver ranked fifth in vertical jump, delivering a 39.5-inch leap.

Patriots got him for a reason and Douglas will get the best of this opportunity.

“I am getting the opportunity,” Douglas said. “Working with either quarterback (Jones or Bailey Zappe), whoever I go with, as long as I am in, I get an opportunity. I try to maximize every time I am in, going 1s, 2s or 3s.”

If you have questions about Douglas’ frame, do not worry, he adjusted his style to Jones’ height.

“I always been doubted, from when I was young, especially coming out of a little awkward, stuff like that,” Douglas said at practice on Tuesday. “Had coaches like, ‘You kinda short.’ I play with a chip on my shoulder. But I always come out and feel like I am the same height as everybody when I am on the field. I feel like I can play with anybody.”

Douglas measures at 192, meaning he has enough strength to power through opponents on the field.

“I always have that mentality of, I need to get better, I need to do something,” Douglas said. “Believe my weight was a problem—I’d say my height but I can’t change that. I gained, as I was going through my years, I kept gaining and gaining. My coaches at Liberty helped me, they showed me how to eat right, how to eat right to gain weight without losing my speed.”
