Calvin Johnson WR 6'5 239 Georgia Tech Jr. 4.4

By: Robert Davis

Calvin Johnson has been a playmaker and one of the best wideouts in college football since he arrived at Tech. As a freshman, Johnson hauled in 48 receptions for 837 yards and seven touchdowns, earning ACC Rookie of the Year honors. As a sophomore last year, he was just as exciting, finishing with 54 catches, 888 yards, and six touchdowns landing on various All American lists. Johnson saved his best for last, topping the 1,000 yard mark(1,016) for the first time, while catching 67 passes for 13 touchdowns. He won the Biletnikoff award, and was on everyone’s All American lists.

Johnson is a special talent. His combination of size and body control is rare. Game after game, he makes an amazing catch look easy. He will win out against any corner in a one on one situation because of his combination of size, body control, and desire to grab the ball. Johnson also shows the speed to get vertical, and to outrun defenders once he gets the ball in his hands. He has been very productive since stepping foot on campus, despite being the focal point of the offense.

Even though he makes the big play routine, he still has a tendency to drop the easy one every now and then, but that is nitpicking. Johnson is a phenomenal prospect, and lacks nothing as it projects to the next level.

Johnson could possibly be the greatest wide receiver prospect ever. He has it all: the size, the speed, the athletic ability, the hands, and the desire to be the best. He is the best player in this draft, but may not go first overall because of the position he plays.
