    I think you're right. I'm going to keep an eye out for him. I'd like to see a full game.

    Because he's a sophomore and is ineligible for this year's draft. Just a guess.

    He is even faster than I thought. The kid looks good, but a WR version of Bush who will have a lot of the same physical questions asked about his game.

    LOL Ginn will be in for a rough time if their is not a Texas Longhorn in the draft for all the media to focus all the negativity upon. I hope he has a great season next year because the kid can flat out fly. :)

    Not with the recent success of the smaller WR's in the NFL. Sinorice Moss is tiny, but because he's fast, he'll probably go 1st round. If anything, Moss being short has almost turned into a positive.

    The difference is, Teddy can actually play. I still remember being at the OSHAA Div 1 track and field championships a few years back when all everyone was talking about was this Ginn kid who was gonna run the 110 hurdles. So I stuck around and saw first hand an amazing display of speed, explosiveness and grace. What he did at OSU after that never came as a shock to me.

    Geez...that dude can flat out fly. I think it'd be cool to see him and Reggie Bush in an agility contest or some time of skills competition. I would like to see Jerome Mathis and Ginn compete in a 40 yard dash though. Or have them run the whole field and see who's faster. That would be sweet.

    I hope to catch some of his games in the upcoming year. I want to see if his hands are any good. can't really see that from a highlight film.

    I know im getting a little ahead of myself here but can you imagine having Ginn opposite AJ with RB in the backfield. Holy Moly thats what I call speed.

    His hands aren't great, but he's rarely been in the situation where the tough catch had to be made. I'd give his hands a B-, as of now of course, there's always room for improvement.

    I imagine it's about the same as having Mathis opposite AJ with Bush in the backfield, maybe a little better hands but not quite the speed.

    I doubt the speed difference is too much of a difference between Ginn and Mathis (I think that's what you were referring to)

    actually from what I have heard, he has actually ran a 4.23 but then again it was probably ran on some kind of track that makes u faster, and it was this and it was that, so who really knows, we will just wait till he comes out.

    Yeah, that seems like one of those "enhanced" college 40 times. He's probably in the 4.3's

    He had decent stats last season: 2005 Rec:51 Yards:803 Avg:15.7 Long:73 TD:4 Rushing - Att:12 Yards:83 Avg:6.9 Long:68 TD:1 No fumbles in either his freshman and sophmore seasons. I would have loved to have seen how many drops he had, but of course no stats on that.

    He tore Notre Dame up in the Fiesta bowl with Rec:8 Yrds:167 Avg:20.9 Long:56 TD:1 Rushing - Att:2 Yards:73 Avg:36.5 Long:68 TD:1

    Espn didn't have any stats from punt or kick returns for him
