Collin Johnson: Texas

Collin Johnson is a 6-foot-6, 220-pound wide receiver who played his college football at the University of Texas. Collin Johnson didn’t do too much at the 2020 NFL Combine, but he did bang out 19 bench press reps.

The former Texas Longhorn had a great career in college.

Johnson hauled in 188 receptions, 2,624 yards, 15 touchdowns, and an average yards per reception of 14.0.

Johnson is a great route runner with phenomenal size and could provide mismatch nightmares for defenses with pinpoint throws from Drew Brees that could easily set the tall and lengthy receiver up for a phenomenal start to his career.

The Saints need to continue to develop their receiving corps and drafting Collin Johnson would be a step in the right direction. The 2020 NFL Draft is loaded with physical freaks at the wide receiver position and Johnson would be a lengthy receiving prospect for Sean Payton to work with.
