Houston Texans GM Domonate picks the 12th player overall in the community’s 2023 Bleeding Green Nation mock draft.
TCU WR Quentin Johnston
I won’t hold back on my opinions. Since the Houston Texans are a horrible club with several problems, almost any position I chose would have been appropriate. I firmly think that although free agency and trades are used to meet needs, the draft is used to find talent. Therefore, I always have a tendency to favor BPA above needs or positional value when I conduct my own mock tests. The Houston Texans did a decent job of addressing certain openings in free agency, but their roster still requires significant improvement. I saw a tiny top tier and a very huge second tier in this particular draft that are both equally skilled, so I had a lot of good alternatives with this selection.
QB – With the second choice, the most obvious need was filled.
WR: Holy cow, such a frail bunch. Robert Woods, who is now their starting quarterback, would be a #3 or #4 on almost any other club in the league. Leukemia patient John Metchie is currently unknowable and recuperating. Their third player is Noah Brown, and if you’re wondering who the hell that is, you’re not the only one.
OL – Although they make good tackles, their inside play is lacking significantly.
DL – They overpaid for Sheldon Rankins and lost their best DE in free agency, so they unquestionably need assistance.
Secondary – Their CB2 is our longtime buddy Steven Nelson, so they may improve here, but the rest is good.
The Texans selected their brand-new franchise quarterback in the second round, and in my opinion, surrounding him with quality weapons is the greatest way to help him improve. Securing quality support is crucial since we have all witnessed the enormous strides young quarterbacks can make when given strong weapons (Jalen Hurts with A.J. Brown/DeVonta Smith, Tua Tagovailoa with Jaylen Waddle/Tyreek Hill, Josh Allen with Stefon Diggs, Joe Burrow with Ja’Marr Chase, etc.). With this decision, I decided to go with Quentin Johnston since I believe he will best aid in the development of my quarterback. Since the top males are all taken, I believe I was able to discover someone who satisfied both my BPA criterion and a critical necessity.
Johnston possesses almost every quality you want in a top wide receiver. He is extremely fast with rapid bursts off the line and breaks. He also has tremendous size, athleticism, and speed. He excels at opening up space and possesses incredible long speed, frequently outpacing defenders on deep runs. He has a remarkable sense for seeing gaps in zones and is a powerful route runner. He consistently causes the first defender or two to miss in the open field and is quite dangerous. He may be the only wide receiver in this class with real big-play potential. He is the ideal example of an X receiver, and some of his comparisons are AJ Brown, Alshon Jeffery, and Amani Toomer, all of whom were legitimate #1 receivers in their peak.
