The NFL reportedly didn’t invite receiver Quentin Johnston to the 2023 draft in Kansas City for fear of him tumbling out of round one completely.
Johnston became the second receiver off the board, at No. 21. He landed with the Chargers.
The Chargers need help at receiver, more down the road than now. Keenan Allen is 31, and Mike Williams is 28.
Johnston, a big receiver like Williams, gives franchise quarterback Justin Herbert another potent target in the passing game.
