Fantasyholics 2023 Draft Profile:Quentin Johnston WR TCU

The measurables 6’2” 208 LBS

At Combine only did vertical (40”) & broad jump (11’2”)

At TCU pro day he ran a 4.49 40 yard dash.

What pro scouts and people way smarter than me are saying about Johnston:

Pros: He is THE big WR in this class. The top of this WR class other than Johnston are players under 6 feet and under 190 pounds. Prototypical big body WR1 at least with his height/weight. Showed great YAC in college. Has above average separation speed. Very good catch radius due to size and wing span.

Had a dominant performance in the CFB semifinal vs Michigan. 6-163-1.

Cons: Not the best route runner. More than one scout says he can be lazy in cuts and coming back to the ball. For a big WR he struggles with contested catches. Probably the biggest knock on him is that he has struggled with drops/catching the ball with his body. This was even shown at his pro day catching passes from his own QB with nobody covering him. Lastly I mentioned his monster semifinal game vs Michigan but I also have to mention that in the title game vs Georgia he did nothing. 1 catch for 3 yards.

My 2 cents as a Fantasyholic and die hard dynasty player: QJ will almost definitely be a top 50 NFL pick and could absolutely be a first round pick if a team falls in love with his size. He will also be a first round pick in dynasty drafts, if not a very high second rounder.

I am personally fading him in rookie drafts currently as I personally prefer Jordan Addison and Zay Flowers who are usually available in the same range.

I could definitely be and am willing to be wrong on him and he could be a solid to very good NFL player. However too many pro scouts and devy players I know and or follow don’t like Johnston as a prospect. I will always defer to the pros with scouting.

Best case scenario Pro Comparison: Alshon Jeffrey

Realistic Pro Comparisons: Martavis Bryant & Breshad Perriman.
