TCU’s Kendre Miller, Quentin Johnston declare for NFL Draft

After one of the most successful seasons in TCU program history saw the Horned Frogs come up short in the CFP National Championship, running back Kendre Miller and wide receiver Quentin Johnston both announced Monday that they are declaring for April’s NFL Draft.

Kendre Miller suffered a knee injury in the CFP Semifinal versus Michigan that held him out of the CFP National Championship. Miller rushed for 1,399 yards this past regular season as a junior, averaging 6.2 yards per carry and scoring 17 touchdowns. Miller’s 26 touchdowns as a Horned Frog rank ninth in school history. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. ranks Miller as the No. 8 running back available in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Quentin Johnston, also a junior this past season, finished with the second-most receiving yards in a single season in TCU history with 1,069. Johnston has a very good chance to be the first wide receiver selected in the 2023 NFL Draft, and will make an impact on any NFL team immediately. A team like the Houston Texans could give their fans plenty to look forward to with a pairing of one of the draft’s top two quarterbacks (Alabama’s Bryce Young or Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud) with an incredibly gifted prospect like Johnston. Quentin Johnston finishes his storied TCU career with 2,168 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.
