ESPN Releases 7 Minutes Of Calvin Johnson Highlights From College [VIDEO]

By: Evan Jankens

Being able to see Calvin Johnson's amazing career in the NFL is one memory that will always stay with me.

As a member of the Detroit Lions for his entire career, fans got to see it all. Amazing catches, breakaway speed -- He simply was the complete package when it came to a NFL wide receiver.

Now that Calvin has called it quits it seems that he is enjoying life. He just recently got married, hung out with the first lady, went fishing and finally got his hand surgically repaired.

When the Lions drafted Johnson out of Georgia Tech I didn't know much about him. What I knew is that he ran a 4.3 40-yard dash with a pair of borrowed shoes and made a spectacular one-handed catch against N.C. State.

ESPN posted a 7 minute video titled, "Calvin Johnson was a human highlight reel at Georgia Tech."

No matter what level he was performing at, Megatron truly was amazing.
