ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech receiver Calvin Johnson says he will enter the enter the NFL draft rather than return to school for his senior year. Johnson, from Tyrone south of Atlanta, had long been expected to give up his final year of college, and he did little to change that perception during a brilliant junior season.
He was named to The Associated Press All-America team and won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver. He made the announcement during a noon news conference. In what might have been his final game, he had nine catches for 186 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-35 loss to West Virginia in the Gator Bowl. He finished with 76 receptions for 12-hundred, two yards and 15 touchdowns. The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Johnson has the size that NFL scouts are looking for and is also extremely athletic.
