MORE DRAFT TALK

7

On another blog I wrote Ted Ginn Jr.= Desmond Howard. Now comes word his foot injury may prevent him from attending the start of training camp.

Ginn paid a visit to the Dolphins’ complex Sunday and said his sprained left foot will be in a boot for about a month. Rehabilitation will follow, and Ginn said there’s no guarantee he’ll be ready to practice when camp begins in three months.

“It’s whatever the training staff says,” the speedy Ohio State receiver-returner said. “I hope that I’m going to be able to be there day one.”

That pick was such a reach. Nobody thought Ginn would go that high. I would have rather had teammate Anthony Gonzalez, the WR the Colts selected with the last pick off the 1st round.

    If anyone in this draft was My Guy, it was Gonzalez – I watched a lot of OSU last year, and there’d be all this talk abou Ginn, but it was Gonzalez making catch after catch across the middle, deep outs; good size and great hands. Manning will love him.

    Great minds think alike.

    I’d say that picking Ginn is a HUGE reach. Miami needed a QB, and Quinn was the man for the job. Now Miami and Minnesota will have to wait and see if their strategy on passing on Quinn paid off. As for the Lions, they did what they had to do. You cannot let CJ go by. The kid has the size, speed and abilitly to be an elite receiver. Stanton in the second is iffy. But, Martz has done a lot with no-name talent in the past. The Bears draft? Not good. Great TE grab by them. But Garrett Wolfe in the third? We’ll have to wait and see about that one. I’m surprised they didn’t try to grab an OL at some point. FIRE MILLEN MANG!

    I agree with the thinking about taking Ginn so high, I personally would rather have Gonzalez as well, but Miami may have a fit with Welker as a possession receiver. I’m really shocked that Minnesota and Miami would have passed on Quinn, especially looking at their options at QB. I can kind of see Miami’s point-of-view with the imagination that Culpepper may eventually make headway to his old form and the pickup of BYU QB John Beck may have been a steal for them. The bigger question is Minnesota, especially considering their headliners with Bollinger and Jackson who are both severly unproven. I think Minnesota may regret this for a long time..

    Welker is on the Pats now.

    Sorry, didnt know that…

    No need. But I agree that the Fins were foolish to pass up on Quinn. Who knows what Culpepper will be like, plus it always takes a few years to mold a young QB anyway.
