A prototype NFL possession
wide out, Calvin Johnson is a dominant pass catcher and probable top ten
selection in 2007. Displaying
outstanding focus and concentration, Johnson effortlessly moves his large frame
around the field boxing out opponents or physically beating them down to come
away with the ball. A solid
blocker, he also helps the running game by removing defensive backs from the
action. Johnson does not have speed
to stretch the field but his size coupled with natural pass catching hands makes
him very enticing for the next level. The early word is Johnson will declare for
next April's draft. Junior running Tashard Choice now moves into the
starting spot with P. J. Daniels on his way the NFL.
A nice sized back, Choice is an elusive ball handler with outstanding
cutting skills. If he takes his
game to another level Choice will be a first day pick in the '08 draft.
Quarterback Reggie Ball is a terrific athlete with an NFL arm and
the running skills required to pick up yardage carrying the ball.
As a passer he lacks fundamentals and makes a lot of poor choices.
Undersized for an NFL quarterback, he could find his way onto a roster as
a third down ball handling specialist.
The Jackets lost a lot of talent on defense yet offer several prospects to keep an eye on. Tackle Darryl Richard missed most of last season with a torn knee ligament yet showed major NFL ability as a sophomore. Senior linebacker KaMichael Hall is an undersized but explosive defender who plays with terrific speed. Covering a lot of area on the field, he has potential on the weak side at the next level. Cornerback Kenny Scott is a nice sized cover man who also plays with good explosion. Possessing the speed necessary for the NFL, Scott looks like a good fit for a zone system.
