Its Calvin

Day late and a dollar short with the post, but if you follow the Lions, you already know they took Calvin Johnson with their first pick in the 2007 draft (2nd overall). Was this a good pick? Probably.
(Fire)Matt Millen had this to say:

"We considered a bunch of different people. We loved the running back (Adrian Peterson); we loved Joe Thomas; we loved the pass rusher (Gaines Adams); but none of them compared to Calvin Johnson. I think Calvin Johnson was in a class by himself."

More interesting to me is the quarterback pick in the 2nd round of Drew Stanton. The Michigan State QB had some problems at his pro day, but hopefully he will shine in Honolulu Blue and Silver.
