NFL.com: Calvin Johnson headlines seven most dominant players today

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on May 24, 2012 – 11:13 am

Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com has listed wide receiver Calvin Johnson as one of the seven most dominant players in the NFL today.

Says Jeremiah, “You aren’t given the nickname ‘Megatron’ for being just an above-average wide receiver. Johnson is the epitome of dominance. Everyone in the stadium knows where the ball is going and there is absolutely nothing a defense can do about it. If you are looking for a witness, give Rob Ryan or anyone in the Dallas secondary a call. As one NFC executive put it, ‘He’s a bigger, tougher Randy Moss.'”

Johnson is the only receiver on the list.

Other players include Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, Jets CB Darrelle Revis, Cowboys OLB DeMarcus Ware, Vikings DE Jared Allen, Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul and 49ers DT Justin Smith.
