Our NFL rookie profile series begins with this analysis of 2023 NFL Draft Prospect Quentin Johnston, WR from TCU. We will continue to provide you with these in-depth rookie profiles and a ton of other fantasy football rookie analysis right up through the NFL Draft. Stay tuned, and stay ahead of your league.
Jalen Reagor was the last first-round wide receiver to come from TCU. Everyone still has a bitter taste in their mouth from that experiment. Quentin Johnston will be a good example of why drafters will need to scout the player and not the helmet. Even if the results end up the same, these are different players who can win in different ways on the field.
Johnston enters this year’s draft class with tremendous upside. This year’s batch of receivers has a lot of players who list in the 170-185 pound range. Johnston will give us something different in the size-adjusted speed realm of the draft. He is slotted to go in the first round of the NFL Draft and it’s hard seeing him fall out of the first round. He seems locked into top-tier draft capital.
Will he develop into the next cornerstone player in dynasty fantasy football or is this another wide receiver who does not live up to the hype?

Johnston led the team in receiving as a true freshman. He turned it on at the end of the season with 247 yards and one touchdown in his last two games against Oklahoma State and Louisiana Tech. He was the team’s downfield threat with a 17.5 average depth of target. He also owned a 24.81 percent market share of TCU’s passing production while also averaging 1.78 yards per team pass attempt.

Man I can’t bring myself to feel comfortable about him in the late first. I’ve got the 1.08&1.09, and honestly, as a Mahomes owner, I’m hoping Addison or QJ go to the Chiefs and that might make me feel better about drafting them. I don’t know if I trust QJ as a prospect to want him wherever he goes, I have to wait for the draft to really feel any kind of way about him yet. Right now though he just makes me nervous to buy in on.
If Johnston falls to 1.08/.09 it’s probably because he ended up in a horrendous situation. Crowded WR room, poor QB play. Tampa wouldnt be a great landing spot. Indy wouldnt be a great fit either in my opinion. Miami would be crowded. If he lands somewhere decent and he (miraculously) falls to 1.08–you smash the draft button.
