Since the end of the 2022 season, the consensus in the media as the top receiver for the 2023 NFL Draft has been Ohio State's Jaxon Smith-Njigba. He ended the season with a prolific Rose Bowl game playing for a high profile program. While Smith-Njigba is in the running to be the top receiver, he is facing serious competition from TCU's Quentin Johnston. Sources from five different teams all really like Johnston and think he could be a top receiver for the 2023 draft.

"Johnston is a freak who will be one of the best talents at the position evaluated in a long time. The physical skill and makeup are in the Julio [Jones], A.J. [Green] realm," texted an AFC area scout. "He's 6-foot-3, 215-pounds and can win on all three levels. He puts up 20 yards per catch, runs great routes, is super smart, an alpha, and the hardest worker on the team."

Johnston flashed in 2021 catching 33 passes for 612 yards and six touchdowns. While he has a good combination of talent, in speaking to directors at four other teams they weren't ready to put him in the same category as Jones and Green.

"We like him, I like him, not enough to throw those names out there for me," said an AFC director of player personnel. "But I do like his skill set. Size, length, tough, good speed but not great speed. His hands are reliable but I don't think his overall ball skills are top shelf. We will see how he plays this year."

While Johnston still has more to prove with pro evaluators, they are high on him across the board and he could end up being the top receiver prospect in the 2023 NFL Draft.
