The next big thing?…or ever for that matter. But this weekend in particular, I wouldn’t want to be the guy who passes up on Calvin Johnson.

Last year everybody knew that the texans had made a mistake passing up on Reggie Bush before one game of the season had been played. This year it might not be so obvious, but I think any team who lets C.J. pass them by is going to regret it time after time after time in the seasons to come.

You don’t need me to tell you about the physical phenom that Johnson is nor the amazing talent that he possesses, we all know he is an awesome talent and is easily the best player available in this years draft. So why won’t the Raiders or the Lions pick him? Because their individual situations dictate that they can’t do it. Sucks to be them.

The Raiders need a Quarter Back and they can’t afford to not take either of the two superb talents on offer. The Lions? Well the Lions can’t take another damned WR or they’ll risk a riot. Should either of these teams ignore their problems and draft C.J. with their round one pick?

No. They just can’t afford to. Which is why, despite the obvious, I would hate loathe to be either of those guys come Saturday.
