    No question Calvin Johnson is the better WR. From those highlights Ginn is all about speed, but you don't see him make spectacular catches or catches in heavy traffic. Calvin does both and while he's probably not as fast as Ginn he does look fast enough.

    If the Titans were to draft Ginn I'd worry about him turning into the next Calico...

    Johnson's abilty to adjust to the ball while in the air is fantastic. Add his size, speed and great hands to the equation and you have a pro-bowl WR who could be the next TO. Even when the guy is covered he can adjust and make the play. I would take Johnson over Ginn but Ginn is very good as well. He looks like he has another gear that would set him apart in the NFL. Still I could see Johnson being a top 5 pick along the lines of Andre Johnson or Braylon Edwards.

    Brandon Lloyd sucks, but believe me, he made one of the best catches I ever seen, better than Calvin Johnson's. Lloyd has a bunch of atheltic catches, but the one against the Giants was amazing.

  10. ok, some of u know that ive been on ginns bandwagon for a while, but after seeing that calvin johnson highlight reel i really wouldnt mind getting either of them, both are amazing in their own respects
    calvin- can get the ball at its highest point where no one else can, and make the toughest catches that i have ever seen in my life
    ginn- is the fastest mother ****er of a football player ive ever seen, and he can beat dbs all day with his speed and get a lot of yac

    but to the ginn that compared them to steve smith and santana, there is no way u can say ginn is a poor mans steve smith, he is soo much faster and quicker than smith, he is much more of a randy moss type receiver, but hes even faster than moss is, ginn is what u get when u have a sprinter in football, but now he is a football player, and calvin johnson has the hands of like marvin harrison where he catches everything and the body build of to, which enables him to go get it
