    The more I think about it, the more I'm hoping we take a WR with our first pick.
    It would be fantastic if he slipped to us.
    Hard to imagine that happening though.

    Re: Calvin Johnson to enter NFL draft

    The funny part is that ESPN is calling this breaking news.
    How is this breaking?
    Everyone knew he was going to declare this year and skip his senior season.

    Either him or Jarrett would be good.
    I'd prefer Jarrett, but I'd be happy with him.
    I'd also be happy with Ginn.
    (Okay Gator fans, let's hear your opinion here).
    Actually if we got Jarrett or Johnson, we may even be able to get someone like Anthony Gonzalez in the 2nd round.
    We definitely need a veteran through trade or FA, though.
    Joe Horn, Jerry Porter, Drew Bennett, somebody.

    Re: Calvin Johnson to enter NFL draft

    Have been a big supporter of Calvin Johnson since he reminds me so much of Moss in his playmaking ability....but when you look at the numbers Jarrett seems to be the steadier of the "big three" and has Johnsons size, but showed some poor behavior in the Rose Bowl, so that might drive away Childress.
    I know Marcus Freeman ((#1) LB for Ohio State) and he says Ginn is "the fastest guy he has ever seen...he just has another geer that other people can't get to."
    I would be happy with any of the three...........

    Re: Calvin Johnson to enter NFL draft

    Well here is to hoing for CJ. Guess all the people who said "he might not come out" can continue saying that about Jarrett for about two weeks.
    As for the numbers, Jarrett put up his numbers with real quarterbacks throwing to him in an offense where double-teaming receivers was not an option for opposing defesnes. Johnson faced constant double and requent triple-teams and still put up unsurpassed numbers this year.
