Vrbo Fiesta Bowl - Michigan v TCU
Which teams might draft Quentin Johnston?

Quentin Johnston was a key part of the TCU team that made an impressive run to the College Football Playoff title game. They got routed by Georgia in that game, but Johnston was a big playmaker for them all year and especially in their victory over Michigan.

Now, he's headed to the NFL Draft where he's one of the top pass-catching options out there. He may not be the first wide receiver off the board, but he'll be a key offensive player for whichever team takes him. Which teams should be looking at him on Draft Day? Here are a few options for his future NFL home.

3) Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have a lot of needs to fill in the upcoming draft, and Quentin Johnston fills one of them. They were pretty bad in the passing game last season and they lost Allen Lazard and will likely be trading Aaron Rodgers away.

For Jordan Love's success, they need to find someone to pair with Christian Watson. Johnston can be that player. He would excel as a number two target and while neither he nor Watson would likely demand double teams, it would give Love two reliable targets to look for.


2) Los Angeles Chargers

Could the Chargers pair Johnston with Herbert?

The Los Angeles Chargers made it through an entire season more or less without any reliable, healthy wide receivers. Both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams missed a lot of time and the Chargers may end up moving on from Allen. Quentin Johnston and Mike Williams would provide a pretty solid duo for Justin Herbert to throw to.

With Herbert's rookie deal winding down, the Chargers need to put an offense around him before he has to be extended. Drafting Johnston would ensure they give him a good target for at least the next few years.


1) Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions traded away TJ Hockenson, which leaves Jared Goff more or less with just Amon-Ra St. Brown to throw to. He's a dynamic playmaker and a reliable target, but he's only one player. The Lions could easily select Johnston in the latter half of the first round and form a dynamic duo.

The Lions are building something under Dan Campbell. While they certainly need defensive help, it's hard to resist pairing Johnston with St. Brown and giving opposing defenses an absolute nightmare to prepare for.
