WR | Ohio StateTed Ginn Jr.
Height: 5-11 | Weight: 178 | 40 Time: 4.30
-Positives: When it comes to speed, Ted Ginn Jr. just may have Calvin Johnson beat. Although he didn't attend the combine to get his 40-time tested, it is believed that he could run a 4.30. He ran track in high school and was noted as one of the fastest players in the country. He doesn't have the height for jump ball situations, but that type of speed can stretch a field in an instant. His speed also creates a lot of opportunities for trick plays, including reverses, screens, and quarterback option passes. Best of all, he is extremely difficult to cover on kick and punt returns.

Negatives: Although Ginn is very fast, he still never really polished himself as a "receiver". In fact, some may say that his teammate, Anthony Gonzalez, would be more of a "receiver" than Ginn is. Ginn relies a lot on speed, which could pose a problem if he can't handle the jam at the line of scrimmage in the NFL. He needs to improve his route running and still drops a lot of balls that are thrown his direction. He isn't a highly rated prospect due to having "better" hands than people rated below him.

Notes: Ginn played wide receiver, cornerback, and quarterback at Glenville high school in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was coached by his father, Ted Ginn Sr. Ginn was originally thought of as a top ten pick, but after spraining his ankle in Ohio State's BCS Championship game and not being able to attend combines, he value will inevitably fall a little. In the end, Ginn is a player that could pay off or be a complete bust. His success will likely be based on the type of system that a team runs.
