Quentin Johnston’s Profile

Projected Average Draft Slot: 17th Overall

  • He’s a big-bodied (6-foot-3, 208 lbs) moderate-volume-downfield threat with elite after-the-catch ability.
  • From a production standpoint, think smaller but more dynamic Michael Pittman.

Potential Landing Spots

Minnesota Vikings, Pick 23

Odds: +650, 13.3 percent

Rating: 9/10

New England Patriots, Pick 14

Odds: +700, 12.5 percent

Rating: 5/10

  • New offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien likely improves the New England Patriots’ disastrous offense.
  • Mac Jones is not an ideal QB for a perimeter receiver like Johnston.
  • It probably starts in 2-WR sets with JuJu-Smith Schuster and/or DeVante Parker.
  • Johnston would have minimal target competition in a suboptimal offensive environment.
  • This greatly hurts Smith-Schuster, who we currently project for high volume, given the depth chart.
  • Parker is ruined for 2023, as Johnston compares closely to a younger Parker.
  • Tyquan Thornton is likely a situational player (a la his rookie year) if they draft Johnston.


Baltimore Ravens, Pick 22

Odds: +750, 11.8 percent

Rating: 7/10

  • Todd Monken is the Baltimore Ravens’ new offensive coordinator. He has a long history of pass-heavy, high-depth of target offenses.
  • We are extremely confident he gets starting reps opposite Rashod Bateman, given their depth chart.
  • QB is a question mark. But, if Lamar Jackson returns, the upside is 4,000 efficient passing yards.
  • It’s a 7/10 if Jackson returns, and a 3/10 if a QB like Tyler Huntley is their Week 1 starter.
  • Slight target share downgrade for Mark Andrews, and this could force Bateman into a WR3 role in an offense with a mobile QB.

Green Bay Packers, Pick 15

Odds: +950, 9.5 percent

Rating: 4/10

  • Johnston fits the Green Bay Packers WR archetype well, as he’s a big-bodied perimeter WR.
  • Jordan Love is a QB downgrade from Aaron Rodgers, but at least the depth chart is wide-open after Christian Watson.
  • There would be a worrisome amount of downfield overlap with Watson, who was a high-volume option last season.
  • This would be a bad landing spot, as there’s a chance he plays a part-time role behind Watson for much of 2023 with a below-average QB.
  • Minimal impact on Watson, but would significantly hurt Romeo Doubs.

New York Giants, Pick 25

Odds: +1000, 9.1 percent

Rating: 8/10

  • The New York Giants’ WR depth chart consists mostly of slot-only players.
  • Johnston shouldn’t have too much trouble beating out Isaiah Hodgins for the starting X receiver role by October.
  • Daniel Jones’ rapport with Darius Slayton (46 receptions and 724 yards in 13 full games) demonstrates Johnston’s upside in New York.
  • Great landing spot for fantasy, as Darren Waller is the only other big-bodied pass-catcher, and he plays primarily in the slot.
  • Hodgins should no longer be drafted, and Waller likely experiences a slight volume downgrade if Johnston lands here.
  • Slayton becomes more of a rotational player.

Houston Texans, Pick 12

Odds: +1000, 9.1 percent

Rating: 8.5/10

  • Would be paired with rookie QB C.J. Stroud (scouting report) or Bryce Young (scouting report), as the Houston Texans are frequently mocked to take a WR at No. 12 to pair with their QB at No. 2. 
  • Has a chance to emerge as their WR1 by midseason.
  • Above-average landing spot, as Johnston would join a barren WR room with a talented but raw QB.
  • Every WR on the Texans likely moves down on the depth chart, and Nico Collins suffers the most.
  • We think this would be a strange pick by Houston (potential overdraft), as Jaxon Smith-Njigba (scouting report) and Jordan Addison (scouting report) look like better fits on paper for this offense.


Tennessee Titans, Pick 11

Odds: +1500, 6.3 percent

Rating: 6/10

  • The Tennessee Titans have no receiving options outside WR Treylon Burks and TE Chigoziem Okonkwo.
  • Ryan Tannehill is a professional QB, and you’re hoping the Derrick Henry trade rumors come to fruition, as this currently projects to be an extremely low-volume passing offense again.
  • The Titans have a bottom-tier offensive line, which negatively impacts the passing game, particularly on deep throws.
  • Johnston to Tennessee hurts Burks and Okonkwo’s volume.

Pipe Dream Landing Spots

Johnston is unlikely to be available by the time most of these teams pick, and these tantalizing landing spots total just 18.3% cumulative odds of happening in the betting markets. However, these would all represent elite fantasy landing spots for Johnston’s year-one outlook.
