Johnson was clocked at 4.33 in the 40, recorded an 11-foot standing broad jump and had a vertical leap of 43 inches.
If true, he is going to be the #1 pick. You do not pass on someone that big and fast.

Yes. He is better than AJ coming out. He has better hands, is bigger and faster, and fights for the ball. He is everything that AJ is and more...which is scary.

Yea, that dude is amazing. Whatever team gets him is going to be very lucky. He would be a steal if he got selected #1 overall much less lower!!! lol

Speed can be overrated. Not saying Calvin Johnson is overrated, but speed being taken into account can be dumb sometimes.

His flaw was playing on a medicore team with a HS backup playing QB.

His weakness will be his route running as he has been able to get by on athletic ability alone, but his routes are fairly crisp already.

Also, there is a video in one of these threads that I'm too lazy to look up that shows him getting 45in in the vertical.

Calvin Johnson is a 9.0 prospect. He starts his bid to catch Jerry Rice the moment he's drafted. He has no flaws. He is devestating and willing blocker. He has great body controll and outstanding hands. His only weakness is inexperence. He'll be a top five reciever this season. If Gruden can come up with a QB, he may lead the league in TD catches...even with with Galloway on the team.

Don't get ahead of yourself there. There is no guarantee with any NFL prospects, because, after all, they are just prospects.

With that said, the best thing about him is his attitude. He is tough, hard worker with a team first mentality. If he drops out of the top 3 I'll be shocked

His work ethic is second to none. he's got the 'potential' to be great but what sets him apart is his humbleness, attitude, and work ethic.

My roommate is a HUGE geogia tech and falcon fan. He says atlanta should trade their 1st rd picks for '07, '08, & '09 to Oakland so they can get CJ. Now he's half way joking....but half way serious....CJ is that good. (then again he probably thinks atl will be picking #32 in '08 and '09 too! lol)

I'm not saying CJ isn't a great athlete or anything, but I'm taking these numbers with a grain of salt. It could be that they are exagerrated or maybe he ran on a faster track (Compared to the combine). I guess the question know is if he decides to participate in any drills at the combine.

The thing is, these numbers aren't just thrown out there. They were just done like last week preparing for the combine. CJ has a better vert jump than listed as well. Indy is a fast surface.

Johnson was on "Path to the Draft" last night and they asked him what he would run in Indy, and he said 4.4....or better. At his size? Wow...

Just b/c he runs fast & can jump doesn't mean he's a good football player people. Furthermore, if he is selected #1 overall which would mean the raiders, they'll still have 1 fundamental problem....................... who's going to be throwing to him?

Calvin Johnson is THE best player in this draft and if the Raiders don't draft him, shame on them....

Don't worry about a QB this year, or go with the Best one available in the second rd.....You don't pass on talent like that....and besides, he's the type of reciever that makes QB's look better than what they are.
