Each week for the season, we are going to take a look at the star of the opposing team. We’ll take a look at their careers, and their role in the game on Sunday. For the first installment, we take a look at the star receiver for the Buffalo Bills, and a guy that has had more success than many guys have on Revis Island. The spotlight is on Steve Johnson.

We will pick up Stevie’s career in college, when in 2005 he transferred from Chabot College to the University of Kentucky. In his final year at the school, he caught 61 passes for 1,052 yards and 13 TDs, a year that placed him second on the school’s record list. He was also the fourth player in school history to amass over 1,000 yards receiving and 13 TDs. Johnson ended up being picked in the 7th round of the 2008 NFL draft.

After a couple of slow seasons to begin his career, Steve Johnson came into his own in 2010, with 82 catches for 1,073 yards and 10 TDs. He backed that up in 2011 with 76 catches, 1,004 yards and 7 TDs. He clearly is a star in the league, and a player that is on the rise.
