1. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Johnson is the dream wide receiver, the rarest combination of size, intelligence and pure athletic ability. He lived out most receivers’ best season last year (84 catches, 1,492 yards, 12 touchdowns) and he did it in just 14 games. If healthy this year, he could easily return to his historic numbers of 2012 (122 catches for 1,964 yards!) in Jim Caldwell’s system. Eight years into his career, Megatron continues to build his case for being acknowledged as one of the greatest to ever play the position. (Jason Miller/Getty Photo)
