Earlier this week, NFL.com posed the question, “Will Calvin Johnson topple Larry FitzGerald in wide receiver rankings?”

Today, Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com answered that question with an unequivocal yes.

Said Jeremiah, “There isn’t much debate involved with this selection. ‘Megatron’ has more than lived up to his nickname. For all the heat Detroit Lions fans have placed on former general manager Matt Millen, they owe him some credit for not passing on this once-in-a-lifetime talent. Last season was the finest of his career. All he did was catch 96 balls for 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns.

“In the era of bend-but-don’t-break defense, he led the league with 10 grabs over 40 yards. This offseason, the Lions made the smart decision to make him the highest-paid player in league history.”
