    Who did better in your eyes?

    Who's better. C. Johnson or D. Jarrett (I think that's how you spell his name). I know that there is mention of both of these receivers in other threads, but it is also with a bunch of other players being mentioned.
    I just want to hear what everyone has to say or think of either after watching the games back to back. I personaly like CJ. He just seems to be more of an impact player right now.

    CJ has more to bring to the table.
    Speed, agility, and hands.

    All I can say is Jarrett looked like a good a receiver, but kind of a showboat. The refs missed the unsportsmanlike penalty he should have had with his jump shot after scoring. He was pointing at the DB on another. A lot of jawing. No need for that stuff.

    Calvin Johnson 9 186 20.7 2 48

    Dwayne Jarrett 11 204 18.5 2 62

    Well personally I watched both games tonight and this is what I have to say, Calvin Johnson might be the best route runner in college football and Dwayne Jarrett is a great posession type reciever, if I had to choose right now Dwayne Jarrett did better by stats and USC won the game.
    If both declare for the draft I would be very happy to have either of them as our first pick
    ;D

    Calvin is the monster type of reciever that can change the game, a la Moss, T.O., Chad. Jarrett is more of a possession type, consistent WR. You need both types on your team, but the monster reciever is harder to come by, especially one that has some class, like Calvin is supposed to have, kinda like Marvin Harrison. You gamble with a high pick for a Calvin, but Jarrett would be overvalued at, say, the number 7 draft spot. You can get a possession WR later in the draft. A game changer may not emerge in any given year, so if you can get one, get him, it could be 5 years before another comes along. Thats my take.

    Re: Who did better in your eyes?

    Being a WVU fan let me say that our secondary is pretty sorry.
    CJ's size and speed are freakish.
    He has good hands but I haven't watched him enough to know if he is anything more than a deep threat receiver.
    Will he go across the middle or is he another Randy?

    I've watched Jarrett several times and I can't help but think he is a more complete receiver.
    He isn't shy one bit about going across the middle.
    He has enough speed to still be a deep threat and he has great hands as well.
    What he did today against that Michigan D was crazy in my opinion.

    I guess Randy's love with the deep ball has soured me some.
    I'd much rather have a jack of all trades over a one trick pony.

    I've seen calvin johnson play in person.
    He has that combination of size and speed that I love.
    However I think Jarrett isn't getting as much recognition as he deserves because of johnson and if I had to make a decision I would go with Jarrett.
    He really showed me something in the rose bowl and I have a good feeling about him.

    I caught part of both bowl games and was impressed by Johnson's lack of attitude and smarts, they mentioned he doesn't cry for the ball and highlighted his off the field academic studies.
    Then I watched the Rose Bowl and saw Jarrett slow down and taunt the Michigan DB on his way to the end zone, and he didn't sound like a genius when he was giving shout outs to the camera on the sideline.
    Either way if we pick a wide receiver I hope they turn out or we'll be on our way to being the new Lions with first round picks.

    And there is the problem with picking a WR. If we pick one at 7, and he's a dud, then we get to pair him with our other #7 looks like a dud WR Troy, then we have dueling dud 7's. Scary. Maybe we should take that safe OL, or trade out and get more picks. Naw, gotta pick Calvin if he's there, just gotta.
