Johnson declares for NFL draft
Georgia Tech All-American Calvin Johnson announced today that he is making himself available for the 2007 NFL draft.
The junior wide receiver had been tabbed by some draft analysts as being one of the top two or three prospects for the upcoming draft before confirming his plans to turn professional.
Johnson, a 6-5, 235-pounder, was a unanimous first-team All-America selection and first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference pick in 2006 and was named the 2006 ACC player of the year.
Johnson led the ACC in receptions with 76 and in receiving yards with 1,202 - and was second in the nation in touchdown receptions with 15.
