5 Players the NY Giants should watch in the College Football Playoff
By Reese Nasser
2. TCU WR Quentin Johnston
Arguably no other player in this year’s draft class has improved their stock like TCU’s Quentin Johnston. While he has been among the best receivers in the nation, he has now put himself into the conversation to be the first wide receiver selected in 2023.
Johnston has been a force since his freshman season in 2020. Over his first two seasons, he took the field in 16 games. Over this stretch, he recorded 1,121 receiving yards and eight receiving touchdowns on 55 total receptions. On the ground, he added two more scores.
In 2022, Johnston played the best football of his career. He has emerged as the go-to option in this TCU high-powered offense, recording 903 receiving yards and five touchdowns on 53 receptions.
At 6-4 and 215 pounds, Johnston could quickly become a threat for any offense. Along with his size, he has speed that allows him to stretch the field.
Johnston can win anywhere on the field and is a big play waiting to happen. He could also step into a role similar to what the Giants expected from Kenny Golladay. With his ability, he could be a legitimate threat in the red zone, something that the Giants have been on the search for in recent years. He could also become the WR1 on this Giants offense. A pairing of Johnston and Wan’Dale Robinson could be a solid duo for this pass-catching room.
