Rice and Johnson are very different receivers. Rice routinely turned 8 yard slants into 40 yard gains. CJ can out duel double teams on jump balls.
Rice maximized every gift he had through hard work, CJ is a natural.
Yet Megatron is much faster than Rice. The more you know......
I do agree Megatron is a completely different receiver than Rice. Rice relied on his incredible route running and hands. Megatron relies on his ridiculous mixture of speed and size. Rice played with 2 of the best qbs ever throwing to him and Megatron is in an offense that throws a lot. There is too many unknowns to clearly say 1 is clearly better than the other.
It pains me to say this, because Rice is my favorite player of all time, but if I had to choose 1 to build my team around, I'm taking Megatron. You could teach catching and routing running, you can't teach size and speed.
