I just, like everyone else on this board and elsewhere, think they are stupid for doing it. If they had taken a stud at another position like Okoye, and then Beck in the second, I would give them a pass. But this might very well end up being a wasted draft pick.

Essentially, Ginn's potential is that he replaces Wes Welker seamlessly. A man who they got a second round pick for...yeah.
Do you honestly think Okoye is NFL ready at 19?

Re: Tedd Ginn, Jr.?

He has his college experience. What's another year or two in the terms of a teenager?

Re: Tedd Ginn, Jr.?

I'll tell you this already. He is more than likely LIGHT YEARS ahead of Sean Taylor in terms of maturity.

No question about that.

The pick made sense for Cleveland. IMO it didn't for Miami.
I think it's more of a question of drafting for need. The Dolphins have NO bigger need than at QB (at this time). They have no proven, healthy qb. They took a "potential" game breaker, against a position that handles the ball on every play.

Ok, well if you are gonna get nit-picky, I will clarify. I saw he has more potential and influence in making a team a superbowl contender than Ginn.

If you think otherwise, I dont know how to explain it any other way.

Not that he couldn't go to the silly ass combine and run wind sprints in shorts. Nobody caught this guy when he was in pads. He is a double threat on teams and at WR. People forget that special teams can WIN GAMES. This guy is simply a game breaker. Who gives a damn if he is in a boot??? It's not like he's going to be walking around in it forever. He'll be ready be training camp.

And why is everyone ready to just give up on Culpepper? It makes no sense to me. This guy had one of the best seasons in the history of the NFL a few years ago. I wouldn't be so sure to close the book on this guy quite yet. He needs to keep healing and get some weapons around him and he'll be fine. Plus they could bring in Trent Green.

Miami thinks they have a chance to win now. If they draft Quinn they would be wasting a year or two. By that time the defense will have to be rebuilt. People can say all they want but why did Quinn drop? Because in the big games he played like shit. Against LSU he looked terrible. NFL teams got scared by that. It's not fair cause Brady Quinn was a great college QB. But so was Troy Smith and looked what happened to him? The guy from Boise State didn't even get drafted and he was a STUD.
At #9 he was clearly a reach and not the best way to spend that high of a pick in many people's opinion.

Who cares if he's injured right now? Well, he's going to miss out on mini-camps and possibly the start of training camp, that's certainly not going to help his early development and chemistry with the offense.

Regarding Culpepper he's coming off some serious knee issues which he had two surgeries on. I'd say that's enough cause for concern. The Dolphins must be concerned otherwise why are they interested in Green?

Re: Tedd Ginn, Jr.?

my take on Ginn. he could either be the second coming of Santana Moss( which is a good thing) or the second coming of Freddie Mitchell( not so good) he could have been picked up probably in round 2

I think drafting for need is not the way to go when you are in the top ten. Plus we are not at the Miami training complex everyday. The coaches see Culpepper everyday so they must have some type of confidence that he could be ready by Sept. Or they are waiting for Trent Green to get cut. Either way Miami didn't think Quinn was a top 10 player. Miami thought that Ginn was a better player and will be a better player. Don't get me wrong. Quinn could be a really good qb. But I don't understand how anyone can argue drafting Ginn I watched ALOT of OSU games the past two years. And Ginn was truly a great player. Both on teams and at WR. Again, all the guy did was get in the endzone against top college players. Miami looked at Ginn and I bet they thought of Devin Hester. W/out Hester does Chi. make it to the SB?

You know who drafted for need? Phil by reaching for Kolb. He was a real nice college player but they could have drafted MUCH better players than Kevin Kolb.

I doubt he will miss anytime in training camp. We are talking about end of July.

As for Quinn, like I said Miami thinks they can win now. So bringing in a rookie qb is probably not the way to go for them. What if Daunte gets healthy and gets back to his old form? Or what if Green comes in and plays like the pro bowler he has been in the past? Then you have Quinn sitting on the bench not contributing. And I'm sure that is what Miami was probably thinking.

How can anyone argue that this guy was not productive and not worthy of being a top 10 pick? He caught so many deep balls I lost count. Plus he is great on teams. I bet Miami is looking at Ginn as being a 3rd down wr this year and making an impact on teams. I doubt they are counting on him coming in and being the #2 wr right away.

In my mind, if he's not clearly penciled in at #1 or even #2, they have no business drafting him this high.

Now if he cracks the starting lineup, then that's another story.

Ginn himself isn't positive he'll be ready for the start of camp.

Kiper had him listed as the 16th overall prospect and was shocked he was taken in the top 10. I don't think many draft analysts expected him to be taken that high.

I hope they have bigger plans for him than just a #3 WR. You don't use the #9 pick on a special teams/slot WR.

As for your thoughts on Culpepper and Green, those are two big if's right now.

If they are so focused on winning now as you say, why did they take Beck in the 2nd round?

I am assuming he will crack the starting line-up at some point. But almost all most rookie wr's need a year to adjust. But I think they are banking on Ginn making an impact on teams right away.

That's a pretty big if, my friend. Again, first round picks are almost always considered to be starters or get significant playing time right out of the gate.

Too many variables surrounding Ginn, in my opinion.

All rookie wr's take a year to adjust. Miami will be looking for an impact on teams right away. People always under estimate the value in special teams and field position.

As for Mel Kiper? I respect his opinion. But all Kiper had to do was turn on the tape of this guy and see him making plays all over the field. Plus did Mel Kiper judge him on special teams? Again, people seem to forget all about this when judging guys.
