Trade partner???? If he's there we need to draft him. Plain and simple.

Really? You think we should take Calvin Johnson in place of our other, arguably more pressing, needs?

Re: Calvin Johnson entering NFL draft

Wouldn't Tampa Bay or Cleveland take Johnson? The Bucs haven't had a solid wideout in eons.

I can't see the Browns going after a WR. And supposedly the Bucs want to find a replacement for Simeon Rice. So they might target Gaines Adams

I would draft him in a heartbeat if he is sitting there. Best player on the board hands down. I watch a lot of college and this guy is a can't miss. Plus he's not an asshole like TO. He comes from a good family and keeps his mouth shut. CJ is a TD machine. He's a difference maker in the red zone and we need to score more points. Because of his size and speed he will cause all kinds of problems for the defense. Can you imagine the PI's he would draw? I know our defense sucks but you can't pass on a guy like this. But he'll be long gone by the 6th pick.

Jesus. The last thing our team needs is a WR. Another weapon for our offense to use so we can score 40 a game to keep up with our shitty ass defense? A WR is a retarded idea. Next.

I can't see Tampa or Cincy taking him. They seem to be more prudent drafters and like taking the more sure things like linemen and so forth. Falcons seem like a solid idea.

All I'm saying is if he's at the 6th pick he would be the best player on the board. Yes we have alot of wr's but the real question is are they any good? Outside of Moss are any of them threats in the red zone? No. None of them are. LLoyd only runs one or two routes and does not go over the middle. And ARE is only a 3rd WR who has never caught over 50 balls in one season. People talk about how bad the defense is. And it is bad. But if you have the chance to take someone who has Hall of Fame ability you simply can't pass on him.

Re: Calvin Johnson entering NFL draft

So if he is available at 6 what were the other 5 teams thinking when they passed on him. Bunch of idiots I guess.

I'd say you are potentially WAY over-valuing him. WRs are bust magnets and even the best of them usually have adjustment periods.

We can pass and I could almost guarnatee that we will if given the opportunity.

I could be. But he honestly looks like TO and R. Moss combined. The guy is 6'4 or 6'5 and runs like a 4-4 and has awesome hands. I saw him play several times because I'm a MD. grad so I tend to watch alot of ACC. What I saw was a can't miss. But you are correct. WR's tend to take a year or two to get adjusted to the pro game. But if he turns out to be a stud and we pass on him I'm going to just shake my head. Texans just look foolish right now with M. Williams and his one or two sacks.

You are kidding....Maybe Matt Millen is sick of his job, and is just trying to get back at all those fans who staged walkouts.

Well part of it could be a smokescreen. He could be trying to get someone to move up there to take Johnson and then get the Lions more picks. It's early though so you hear all sorts of rumors

Wouldn't that be the ultimate though, if he chose his fourth top 10 receiver in 5 years, just to kind of say F-U to the world and the city of Detroit? Then he lit a bunch of motown records on fire and drove off in a Toyota? I would gain a little respect for him if he did that.

LOL - nice touch!

Strangely, I agree with skinsfan69 and FRPLG (and paintrain). You should draft the best player available. However, if you don't need the player (as we don't need a WR right now), then you shouldn't pick him - you should trade the pick.

I can't imagine anyone passing on Calvin Johnson, that man will be insane in the pros. Except the Cardinals I guess...
