2008 NFL Draft

Doucet was regarded as one of the better wide receivers available in the 2008 NFL Draft, and drew comparions to Reggie Wayne. Since he neither has the speed nor size of elite wideout prospects, Doucet was projected as second to third round pick and a "No. 3 receiver" in the NFL. He was picked in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals with the 81st pick overall.
