Summary

Johnson is in the prime of his career, and even when he misses two games, he still posts 1500 yards and double digit touchdowns. Golden Tate give the Lions an extra weapon, but he's not going to steal a ton of stats from Johnson this season. He may not have 120 receptions this season, but Johnson's big play ability and red zone excellence will make him one of the top receivers in the league. Again. (May 26)

Lions | Calvin Johnson has high hopes for team (Thu Jul 10, 03:52 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson thinks the team is in a place where they can win the Super Bowl in 2014. “We need to win a Super Bowl,” Johnson said. “That’s the No. 1 thing. That’s the No. 1 thing (and) should be for every team going into the beginning of the year.'

Our View: This is about as loaded a team as the Lions have had in a long time. At least offensively. Defensively there are some questions about the secondary and special teams has long been an issue. No matter what happens with this team, we know one thing for sure—Megatron is a surefire WR1 and as a staff we feel he is worthy of a top-five pick overall.
