    The only recievers I wouldn't mind us taking rd one are Calvin Johnson, Dwayne Jarrett, and Jed Ginn. Possibly Bowe, but I haven't really seen enough of him. I'd be surprised if more than one of the first three I mentioned was still there at 19, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if they all were gone (I know CJ won't be there) If they're gone, we need to go with DB.

    I don't think we would take Ginn either

    I agree, but also, good DL = better DBs

    so they could both work, plus our 2nd rounder

    Blalock's stock is dropping, he had a bad week at the Senoir Bowl- I don't think he can play OT at the NFL level, but he may be a good OG...

    Well..

    I'd just about guarantee that one (or maybe two) of those 4 WR's (CJ, Bowe, Jarrett, Ginn Jr) will be available at 19...most likely it's Jarrett (and maybe Ginn or Bowe). We'll know more after the comine when they run.

    Well...

    Every guy I've seen go to Indy who's had a supposed 4.2 40 time have not broken the 4.30 range in recent years. I heard Deion did, but I didn't follow the draft and stuff that closely back when he was coming out.

    Josh Wilson also has run as fast as a 4.28 40 so we'll see how quick these guys are (off a superfast track).

    I agree. It's funny how a lot of players always turn out to be a couple of inches shorter, a number of pounds heavier/lighter and a couple of fractions of a second slower than they're reported in college.

    Yes...

    I'm not sure what's better...to claim you can run a 4.2 so you get put high up on draft boards only to run a 4.45 and drop a bit because of the difference.

    Or, to say you run 4.55 and maybe be just another CB and see how far up a draft board you can go by running a faster than expected 4.45.

    Either way, I don't put any stock into anyone who says they have 4.2 speed til I see them run an official 40!

    Gin is fast though and it'll be interesting to see just HOW fast. If he is not in the 4.3 range he won't go in the first rnd I don't think.

    i dont see why he wouldnt go in the first if he doesnt run in the 4.3 range. all you have to do is watch a game and you see he pulls away from everyone.

    with that said, he will run a 4.3. he was a track champ in high school and knows how to get out of the blocks. a lot of guys have slow 40s because they stand straight up or stumble getting out of their stance.

    No. Ginn is fast. He pulls away better than most. The questions are 1) How will his injury affect him long term 2) Is he going to be a great WR, or only a good WR with deep speed and 3) Is he committed to being a receiver worthy of a first-round pick, or is he thinking he wants to be a cornerback deep down?
