Bolts to Los Angeles

Latest Headline: Published 2023-04-27

The Chargers selected Johnston in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 21st overall.

Wide receiver was a need for the Chargers and that market was slow to develop in the first round, which worked out in their favor. Jaxon Smith-Njigba was the first receiver off the board the pick right before and now Johnston is headed to Los Angeles. Johnston isn't a perfect prospect -- there are questions about his route-running and whether the athletic dominance he showed against Big 12 competition at TCU will translate after running a 4.51 40 at his pro day -- but he's the most projectable outside receiver in this class at 6-foot-3. He projects to line up opposite Mike Williams with Keenan Allen in the slot. Johnston may be fourth in the target pecking order when the season starts, but there are durability concerns with the other Charger receivers. In all, this is a solid landing spot for Johnston, who now has a chance to be fantasy-relevant as a rookie in an explosive passing attack.

Heading to NFL

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-17

Johnston announced Monday that he will forgo his remaining eligibility at TCU to enter the 2023 NFL Draft, Steven Johnson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports.

The wideout was a major part of TCU's run to the National Championship Game during a breakout junior season. Johnston showed promise in his first two seasons with a combined 55 receptions for 1,121 yards and eight touchdowns on 105 targets before erupting for 60 receptions for 1,069 yards and six touchdowns on 96 targets (11.1 YPT) in 2022. Production aside, Johnston has intriguing tools. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, he routinely showed big play ability with 18 receptions going for 25 or more yards as a junior. He appears to have good speed for his size, but that will need to be verified at the NFL Scouting Combine. Look for him to be among the first receivers selected in this draft class, putting him on the redraft and dynasty radars.
