Pro Football Weekly tracks the action from the college season through NFL draft weekend.
Calvin Johnson steals defenders' thunder
By Dan Arkush
I'm back at the hotel, blogging away with a big group of people sitting around in the lobby, apparently in town for some type of athletic competition, I'm guessing. Fellow editors Court and Neuby are sitting down here, too, and we'll be cranking out copy well into the night. As for today's proceedings, I was struck most notably by Georgia Tech WR Calvin Johnson among a sea of defensive prospects. Johnson is an absolutely unbelievable athlete, and you can just tell that by looking at him at the podium. He's also a really quality kid who prides himself on being a straight shooter — a nice change from the likes of "it's all about me" WRs Randy Moss and Terrell Owens. Johnson is more and more starting to look like a top overall pick, a rarity at his position. I'll try to be back at you in the wee hours sometime. The weather is a little scary. Frozen rain. Windy. Slippery. Actually, it's quite miserable. Our ride back to Chicago tomorrow could be a lot more exciting than anything going on at the Combine.
