On the clock: Pick No. 20: Seattle Seahawks – Quentin Johnston, Wide Receiver, TCU
Mock Draft 1.0 – Henry To’oTo’o, Linebacker, Alabama
Mock Draft 2.0 – Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson
The media has been guilty of somewhat overhyping the wide receiver class this year, and teams aren’t as high on it as first thought. There still should be some receivers going in the first round, however, and the Seahawks need to find a third receiver for the present as well as the eventual successor to Tyler Lockett.
Quentin Johnston has mismatch potential for the NFL and showcased it with a huge performance both at the Combine and the TCU Pro Day.
Johnston had 60 receptions for 1,069 yards and six touchdowns for TCU this season. He’s a good size at 6-foot-3 and 208 pounds and ran a fast 4.50 40-yard time at the TCU Pro Day.
An explosive playmaker, Johnston should be able to contribute right away in the NFL and look like a potential steal for the next level. While the wide receiver class in general seems to be overrated by the media, he still could make an instant impact in 2023.
