This 2019 NFL Draft wide receiver class is hard to figure out since it features a host of juniors that haven’t made an official decision yet. Texas has two of those juniors that haven’t decided yet, including Humphrey and the lengthy 6-foot-6 Collin Johnson. Humphrey would be more likely to return for the Horns for one more year than Johnson, though.
Johnson joins a class of other top receivers in the nation like A.J. Brown of the Ole Miss Rebels, Marquise Brown of the Oklahoma Sooners, and Parris Campbell of the Ohio State Buckeyes as one of the top at his position in this class. His size and leaping ability on the outside make him a very attractive 2019 NFL Draft prospects for scouts at the next level.
Walter Football ranks Johnson as the sixth best receiver in this class, if he decides to declare one year early. That projection from Walter Football places Johnson as a second or third round pick, which would likely be a steal for whichever NFL team selects him. His combination of size, strength, and vertical jumping makes him a can’t miss early round selection.
Moreover, Johnson is yet to face a test as tough as the Georgia secondary this year. If he proves his worth in the Sugar Bowl against this Georgia defensive backfield that is chalked full of NFL talent, he’ll see his draft stock potentially make a meteoric rise. He already has 945 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on the season. Adding to that mark can only help his case for the 2019 NFL Draft.
