    Megatron is appropriately the nickname given to Calvin Johnson, WR Detriot Lions,

    Who is the biggest freak the NFL has ever seen.

    6'5", 236 lbs.

    • 4.35 Combine 40 yard dash -- equaled the fast RB at his combine, and less than 3% slower than all time fastest Chris Johnson's 4.25, even though Megatron outweighs him by 45 lbs.
    • Vertical leap - 45" is 3rd highest ever at combine
    • Standing broad jump - 11'7" is longest ever at combine
    • Wingspan - 6'10
    • Standing reach - 8'8"
    • Maximum reach = 12'5" which equals highest measured in the NBA, held by Shaquille O'Neal

    All totaled, Megatron can cover over 4,000 cubic feet -- more space than a typical two-car garage.

    He scored a whopping 39 pts in my fantasy league last week to help me reach the championship. Thanks Megatron.

    You should probably cite this. Just saw the clip on sportscenter.

    Regardless, it is something else. The guy is a freak.

    Megatron put a show on today -- just made a catch sandwiched between two mere mortal defenders, wow.

    Double, triple-teamed: 11/244 yards TD.

    A record 1681 receiving yards on the year.
