    I heard estimates on Sirius today that Ginn was no more than 75-80% when he ran those times of 4.38, 4.44 and 4.45.

    ???? Now we are telling fish stories.

    I think that you are a little bias in your opinions of Ginn since you are a Buckeye fan. Have you ever noticed how UT fans on this site want a UT player drafted by the Titans that makes no sense whatsoever?

    I think it's important that we realize that 40 time is not necessarily football speed.

    I will agree that others ran a faster 40 than Teddy Ginn. However, all you have to do is go on youtube, search teddy ginn, and you'd see that in terms of wide recievers, no one is faster than him on the field.

    Seriously, watch how quickly he separates from the defender. On all his long TD runs, whether it be on kick off return or whatever, the closest defender is always like 10+ yards behind him when he scores.

    If all you want is speed, you can't really make a legitimate argument for anyone over Teddy Ginn... AGain, that's if all you want is speed.

    Just watch some youtube tape.

    Did this guy just say he'd run a 4.2 or better? If Ginn ever runs a 4.19 I'll pay for your season tickets to whatever team he's playing for throughout his career.

    Thanks for the correction, I hadn't heard the follow up. He still wasn't planning on running it, which makes more of a difference than you would think

    Pacman was the one player I didn't want the Titans to draft that year and Ginn is the one player I don't want them drafting this year. Not for the same reasons, but I'll be really upset if we draft Ginn in the 1st round this year. There are 4 WRs I like better and I'd say close to 30 players in general I'd rather have. Of course, JMHO.

    What are you guys going to do if we draft him?

    I mean you cant say we wont and I cant say we will cuz theres no way of knowing.

    The same with if he will be good or not. I know I say hes the fastest reciever in the draft and will be awesome in the NFL but in all reality thats just my OSU mind talking. Theres no way of knowing.. he could be the next Steve Smith or he could be the next Troy Williamson.

    Only person who can backup what ive been saying is him.

    Hope he does tho... it'll be funny to hear what some of you say
