The wide receiver position this year doesn’t have a clear number one prospect at the position. The first wide receiver selected could be a number of players and will come down to how the team views that fit.
One of the players who certainly could be in the discussion is Quentin Johnston out of TCU. He had a breakout year this past season with 60 receptions, 1,069 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
Johnston possesses a unique combination of size and speed at 6’4″ and between a 4.51 and 4.54 40-yard dash according to Jim Nagy that the Buffalo Bills could find appealing as an outside receiver to maximize Josh Allen’s arm strength.
However, the biggest concern with Quentin Johnston is something the Buffalo Bills wide receivers struggled with last year and that is drops. According to Mike Renner, Johnston had a drop rate of 10.2%, which is the fifth highest among the wide receivers in this NFL Draft.
The potential is there for Quentin Johnston to be on the same level of a D.K. Metcalf but if the Buffalo Bills want to use a first round pick on a wide receiver someone like Jaxon Smith-Njigba would be a better fit.
