2023 NFL Draft: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU


Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU, 2023 NFL Draft

Rating scale: 1 Poor 10 elite  COD: Change of direction


Caballero says that Quentin Johnston’s film was amazing to watch. His skills pop out while watching TCU football. This receiver prospect for the 2023 NFL Draft has a great combination of size and speed.

Johnston has excellent speed, especially for a 6’3″ WR. Explosive feet and are very active but Quentin still stays under control while running. The ability to suddenly change direction while maintaining full speed is incredible for a WR of this height. Fluid in his routes prior to the ball being thrown. He will need to improve his route tree once he hits an NFL field.

When the ball is thrown to Johnston, he usually catches it. Seems to have soft hands that he uses to receive the ball, not a body catcher. He simply gets open on the college level even though everyone knows the ball is coming his way. Gets yards after the catch in multiple ways. Can break tackles, can shake and bake, or simply just run by a defender.

Quentin Johnston also has the dog factor. Not afraid of contact and seems to enjoy blocking downfield. Keeps good control while leaping to snatch a 50/50 ball. This TCU star will be bringing his big play ability to some lucky NFL team this coming April.
