Quentin Johnston speaks Raiders' All-Pro WR Davante Adams

TCU wideout Quentin Johnston speaks Raiders’ Davante Adams

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Quentin Johnston hits the podium to give his thoughts on various topics, including Raiders’ All-Pro wideout Davante Adams.

Day 3 of the 2023 NFL Combine welcomed quarterbacks, tight ends, and receivers. Bryce Young spoke bright and early, and eventually, TCU standout Quentin Johnston made his way to the podium.

Here, Johnston answered questions about his favorite route to run, what he believes his most underrated skill is, and much more – including Davante Adams.

When asked about who he tries to model his game after, Johnston was quick to mention the Raiders’ All-Pro wideout.

“A player I’ve been watching since before I came into college, Davante Adams,” he answered. “Just his elusiveness off the line, and obviously everyone’s seen his ability to break routes off in different ways. That’s always been something cool to me to watch,” Johnston explained.

It makes sense Johnston would try to emulate Davante Adams for reasons other than Adams being the league’s top receiver. Both of these wideouts are “taller” receivers, although Johnston’s 6’4 height towers over Davante Adams, who stands 6’1″.

Unsurprisingly, the TCU star has Adams in his top-3 at the position, along with Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase.

The Raiders currently have the seventh-overall pick in the draft. While it might be a stretch to suggest Johnston is a possible selection at that spot, don’t rule him out of the equation should the team trade down.

Quentin Johnston’s success at TCU

Johnston, 21 years old, spent three seasons at Texas Christian University. In this timespan, he appeared in 30 total contests, totaling 115 receptions, 2,190 receiving yards and 16 receiving touchdowns.

Most impressively, Johnston averaged 19.0 yards per catch throughout his college tenure.

In 2022, during his senior year, Johnston earned AP first-team All-Big 12 honors. With his help, TCU boasted a 13-2 record, eventually losing to Georgia in the National Championship Game.

Against Michigan, during the 2022 College Football Playoff Semifinals, Johnston logged six catches for 163 yards and a touchdown. The star wideout finished with an unreal 27.2 yards per reception in the victory.
