Round 1 (10): Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

The Packers drafted Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs last year, two important players for the future on offense. However, Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb are free agents and could be gone this spring.

Remember that Green Bay also released Sammy Watkins and Amari Rodgers in-season.

If Lazard and Cobb are gone, it will be important to continue adding talent to a young wide receiver corps in Green Bay.

In TCU’s Quentin Johnston, the Packers would be getting arguably the best wide receiver in the class.

Johnston has great size and athleticism. He is 6-foot-4 and an explosive athlete. Put him in the same offense as Christian Watson, and defenses will have real problems trying to stop both of them.

This season, he made 59 catches for 1,066 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 18.1 yards per reception.

With his athleticism, Johnston is dominant after the catch. According to Pro Football Focus, Johnston has made 43 broken tackles and averages 7.7 yards after the catch during his career. Incredible numbers.

Johnston is 21 years old. Watson is 23. Doubs is 22.

The Packers could potentially enter 2023 with a young quarterback entering his first year as a starter in Jordan Love, who is 24.

Think about how good this group could be together two or three years from now.
