The Detroit Lions selected another WR in the 2007 NFL Draft by selecting Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson with the 2nd overall pick. This is now the 3rd WR the Lions have taken with their 1st round pick in the past 4 years. The newest C.J. of Detroit (the others being former Country Day student C.J. Rush, former Tiger C.J. Nitkowski, and of course the highly renowned world traveler Gigalo C.J. Karchon) finished his career at Georgia Tech having started all 38 games, ranking second in school history with 178 receptions and first with 2,927 yards (16.4 avg.). He also grabbed a school career record 28 touchdowns. Calvin was notified of the Lions decision to draft him before it was announced. The cameras showed Calvin tearing up, which many attribute to being drafted by the usually terrible Lions, but that's false. Calvin is very happy to be in Detroit. Today, he threw out the first pitch at the Tigers game and joined Rod and Mario in the booth around the 4th inning. Rod took another shot at Mario's speed joking that Mario claimed he could outrun Calvin. After Calvin expressed his excitement to be in Detroit playing alongside Roy Williams and Mike Furrey, Rod went on and on about how big Calvin's penis is and how he's a fine gentleman. Anyways, it will be really interesting to see how Mike Furrey, Roy Williams and Calvin work together. I'm assuming we will average close to 50 points a game.
