Ok. Deep breath. Here's the list of injuries Mike Williams has sustained since entering the NFL: herniated disk, knee strain, back spasms, hamstring strain, hip flexor strain, high ankle sprain (twice), and transverse process fracture. I bring this up because Quentin Johnston could be operating as the Chargers' WR2 sooner rather than later. That type of upside in his rookie season shouldn't be ignored in an offensive system that could challenge for the league lead in passing attempts and play volume. Even if he doesn't supplant Williams this season, Johnston offers this offense a different element as a RAC specialist. Last year Johnston ranked sixth in YAC per reception and 11th in missed tackles forced (minimum 50 targets per PFF). Kellen Moore can design looks for Justin Herbert to get Johnston the ball in space and let him do his thing.

Quentin Johnston selected No. 21 by Los Angeles Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers have selected WR Quentin Johnston with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Johnston possesses explosiveness with a 40.5” vertical leap and long arms to go with his 6’3”, 208 lb size. Johnston can make catches all over the field, both split out wide and in the slot, and his RAC skill is huge because he is hard to bring down once he’s got the ball in his hands. Thor Nystrom has Johnston as No. 21 overall and WR1 with an NFL player comp of a taller version of Brandon Aiyuk on his Top 500 big board. The TCU product has a tendency to catch with his body rather than his hands at times which can negate his size and can disappear at times like he did in the National Championship game against Georgia. Despite those negatives, Johnston is another big receiver for Justin Herbert to throw to alongside Keenan Allen and “Big Mike” Williams. The potential is there for this to be a dynamite pick and a huge steal for the Chargers who get arguably the best receiver in this year's draft at No. 21.
