2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #25

Return to Mock Draft

Green Bay
Quentin Johnston



The buzz around Packers' camp focuses on two topics. The first is a defensive unit that has the talent to be among the best in the league. Green Bay's preferred starters include six RD1 picks under the age of 26, and that's not even including last year's 28th overall selection in Devonte Wyatt who has yet to crack the starting lineup. The second is whether Aaron Rodgers has enough talent at WR to win a Super Bowl. Allen Lazard appears poised to emerge as Green Bay's WR1, but rookie WR Romeo Doubs (RD4) is making plays every day and stealing many of the headlines.

Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, and Randall Cobb currently top the WR depth chart, and all three are scheduled to be UFAs in 2023. While mocking a WR to GB in RD1 might feel academic, GM Brian Gutekunst needs to keep devoting resources to the WR room after losing Davante Adams this past offseason. Quentin Johnston will need to break out after posting just 33 catches for 634 yards and 6 TDs last season, but he has all the tools that Green Bay looks for at WR. Estimated to run in the 4.45-4.5 range, Johnston has the size and speed to develop into an alpha receiver. With a career average of 20.4 yards/catch, Johnston's big play ability could be a huge addition for the Packers' passing attack.
