Calvin Johnson is the best collegiate receiver I've ever seen, especially considering he had Reggie Ball for a QB.
Megatron>>>>>>anybody in college
really while getting 1100 yards less. by far crabs out did him in college. no way i can agree with you with the numbers slanted heavy one way.
Again, production is just one thing. There is a reason why Calvin went no. 2 (even though, if Al Davis wasn't senile, he would have gone no.1) and Crabtree went no. 10 (again, Al Davis) - but the point is, there were couple of concerns about Crabtree coming into the draft by the GMs:
1. Is he healthy?
3. The offense he played in jacked up his numbers
4. Getting off the scrimmage
I can't recall one concern about Calvin Johnson. Not one.
I'm not hating on Crabtree. He was my favorite player in college football for last two years. If we had a top 5 pick, I would have wanted him. I really do expect him to do great things for us, and make multiple Pro-bowls. But, CJ is going to be the best WR in NFL for the next 10 years if Staffords turns out a half-way decent QB.
Crabtree may get there, but as of right now, he has more holes in his game than CJ did in his rookie year when it comes to playing in NFL.
1. yes he will be healthy. kris carter answered that. He said i had the same exact injury, same exact surgery early in his career. and look at carter.
4. sullivan will fix that.
