Lions training camp: Watch Chris Houston try to cover Calvin Johnson

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

It's not easy having to cover the best wide receiver in football.

During the Detroit Lions' one-on-one drill on Day 2 of training camp, cornerback Chris Houston had the pleasure of matching up against wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Covering the best wide receiver in the game of football is no easy task, as evidenced by what Johnson did during the drill. Take a look (via Dave Birkett):

After Johnson made the catch, Houston had some fun with the cheering crowd by asking them if they wanted a crack at trying to stop Megatron.

The Lions brought in officials for Saturday's practice, and Paula Pasche reports that there were quite a few flags thrown during the one-on-one drill. All I know is if I had to cover Megatron, my only hope of making a stop would be by holding or interfering with him. Even then, as the video above shows, you're still probably not going to stop him.
