The Athletic's Scott Bodrow calls KeeSean Johnson the Cardinals' "clear" #3 WR, behind Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald. Johnson was the 3rd WR Arizona drafted this spring -- after Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler -- but has reportedly had the best camp so far. Isabella and Butler, meanwhile, have both struggled with drops, per Bodrow. This competition is far from over, but Johnson is now on the radar as a late-round flier in fantasy drafts. We just bumped him up the WR rankings.
The Cardinals grabbed Fresno State WR KeeSean Johnson in the 6th round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Johnson racked up 275 catches over 4 seasons at Fresno State, giving him more career grabs than any other WR in this draft class. He averaged a mediocre 12.4 yards per catch, though, and totaled just 24 TDs. A lot of his production was manufactured by WR screens and other quick-hitters. Johnson was also exposed as a subpar athlete at the Combine, recording a 27th percentile SPARQ score at 6'1 and 201 pounds. His best bet at the next level is as a big slot receiver -- but we're not excited about his upside. Arizona has now added WRs Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and Johnson over the past 3 days.
