You must be wondering... why is Calvin Johnson on this list?
Yes, he is already considered a star in this league—and yes, he had his break-out season two years ago, but he has been marred by inconsistent play.
In his three years in Detroit after being drafted second overall in 2007, Johnson—believe it or not—has yet to accomplish what many had hoped.
Standing 6-5, 235 pounds with the hands of Pudge Rodriquez—with mits on—we expected him to be putting up his 78 catches, 1331 yards and 12 touchdowns on a regular basis.
Instead, injuries and incompetent quarterbacks have led to the demise of one of the best talents in the league.
With Matthew Stafford entering his second year in the league, look for him to mature and realize Calvin Johnson is their ticket to the playoffs as well as the continuation of his career.
With Nate Burleson signed on the other side of the field, Johnson will not be seeing as many double and triple coverages as he did since he joined the league.
It's just not right when Johnson is putting up less than a thousand yards receiving per season.
