"Calvin Johnson reportedly ran a 4.33 forty at a workout with his speed and conditioning trainer on Tuesday.
He also recorded an 11-foot standing broad jump and a vertical leap of 43 inches. These are insane numbers, but he'll have to repeat at the Yellow Jackets' pro day or at the Combine next week for them to be legit."

If this is true this kid is a freak I cant see him not going 1 overall. The raiders can deal moss for a extra pick and take troy smith in the 2nd rd.

I've been saying all along the Raiders should take CJ. He is the best WR prospect since Larry Fitzgerald and has almost no flaws.

Moss and Porter won't be in black and silver next year and neither Russell or Quinn are franchise talents.

The problem, of course, is that someone has to throw him the ball... which seems to be a challenge in Oakland.

I think the earliest team in the draft that would be a fit for CJ2 would be Tampa Bay, and that's where I'll probably pen him in if I get bored and do a mock draft.

keep in mind that these numbers aren't official in the slightest. He's darn good regardless though.

You have to remember that CJ produced at Georgia Tech despite having Reggie Ball as his quarterback and no other good threats on offense. Basically, the defense could completely focus on him and he still got the job done. Yes, it would be better if they had a quarterback, but CJ doesn't need a phenomenal quarterback to play well. They could always try to trade Randy Moss to someone for a quarterback. Atlanta comes to mind; they won't be able to retain Matt Schaub after this year and will want to get something for him, and they need receivers.

If i was Raider management, i would be pushing for a Randy Moss to Green Bay for a 2nd round draft pick. I would then bring Jake Plummer in when the Broncos have to release him before his signing bonus is due. I would select Calvin Johnson with the #1 pick, and grab Troy Smith or Drew Stanton with the second round pick, and groom them for a year or two under Plummer.

Thats my thoughts, and I am not even a Raider fan.

Wow, if these #'s are true, I can't see why Oakland would pass up on him...that would be ridiculous.

*Jaw Drops* Those numbers are actually ridiculous if they are anywhere close to combine numbers. He's definitely the biggest talent in the draft, interesting thought dealing Moss for a QB... I could maybe see Oakland going for a veteran QB and taking Calvin.
