    Ginn holds the distinction of being the fastest Ohio State Buckeye football player on record beating out Joey Galloway, after posting an incredible 4.06 second 40 yard dash in spring practices. That is the best in college football

          nah. . . his speed is clearly impressive, but speed isn't everything. . . a 175 pound receiver isn't going to beat out a guy like calvin johnson, and you have to count on guys like joe thomas and alan branch going in the top ten, as well as a few quarterbacks and probably a defenisve end or two. . .

            i'm pretty sure you only had to watch the national championship game for literally 5 seconds to see what this kid can do.

              Ya and then you only had to watch five more seconds to see what an idiot he is...getting hurt celebrating and costing his team a shot at the title. Broncos should draft Jeff instead (Samardzija, that is). He's the perfect type of WR to replace Rod. Great hands, great hight, great strength, and fast (or at least deceptive enough to get burn his man on a regular basis). I mean you can't compare his speed to Ginn's, but he's a real WR as apposed to Ginn who is far more of a KR than a WR.

One of the #1 assessment details of a prospect for the Broncos scouting staff is "Can they contribute on Special Teams?" and Ginn would pass that test with flying colors.

                I do believe we have other needs; but it's hard to pass up so much potential.

                You don't draft a returner in the first round. You draft a WR that takes over return duties till he is ready to start. Also another note is not to let the flash factor blind you from what we really need. The reason we were bad with special teams was more than just the returner.

                    Wide receiver should be at the very bottom of list of players to draft unless its someone we are taking for their special teams skills. Samardzija looks like he could be a very good receiver, but what little I know of him he was a punt or kick off return specialist.

                    • I aggree that WR receiver should be towards the bottom of the need list but if the Broncos were to move down and maybe pick up and additional 2nd rnd pick and Samardzija was there I would love for the Broncos to draft him (this coming from a Norte Dame hater) because he does 1 thing really well and that is route running far better than you get from a typical rookie.I think he might fall a little bit because of the baseball issues as well.

There was no way that we would have went to the super bowl averaging 18 ppg, unable to substain a long drive, hell even substain a drive for that matter, always starting inside our own 20, defense with no pass rush and not forcing any turnovers = no super bowl.
                        Most of the posts that I have made, I've said, IF we made the playoffs this year ,that we would not make much noise, because of the exact points you put in your post that have been in some of mine. Until we take care of the line of scrimmage, there won't be much point to anything else we try. But you can see in other organizations (AZ, Detroit, and a few others) that they mold their franchises to sell tickets, jerseys, where winning is more an afterthought. It's like they are looking to have big names for the fantasy football crowd. Shanahan is not about that at all. I think that is the basis upon which he said it was Jay that gives us the best chance to win, and since we weren't going anywhere THIS year, make the change for next year. He didn't want to just "make the playoffs".

                        My point with the Chargers and LT: He IS a great RB, no doubt, and the best player at least in the AFC. But nobody really shines without good blocking. Now that they have improved there, as well as at their pass rush, they might go deeper in the playoffs instead of the one-and-dones they had even WITH LT. I still don't think too much of their WR's, but having his threat improves their game.

                        But here's the gist of it all.... the great QB's are really gauged on their post-season play. You could ask ANY one of the good ones who never got the ring, they would trade all of their records for a championship. Expanding on that, I think you could ask Eric ****erson, Barry Sanders (you could finish out this list as well as I could) the exact same thing, likely get the same answer.

                        Now, to draw this back into the thread, so many people are looking for skill positions to be drafted, be it Ginn, Lynch, Peterson, etc, etc, until I'm blue in the face etc... But while some theorize that going for the best available player is a good draft method, I think we are more in a position to specifically target our draft to our points of greatest need. Our greatest need is the line of scrimmage, especially defense. This year, according to most, is going to be a good year for dlinemen, and I don't want to see us bypassing the best one we can get, AGAIN!!

                        • It wasn't Ginn's fault he got hurt in the NC game. His bonehead teammates got too giddy and piled up on him. That said, I think he is just another Rocket Ismail/Desmond Howard type. But I would take him in the second round if he was there (Yes, I know that's highly unlikely).

                            Ted Ginn didn't tell his teammates to trample him. How are you going to call him an idiot? That's a really questionable comment man.

                            You also said Samardzija is going to replace Rod. They're totally different. Shark is a lanky guy who is lucky if his quickness can compensate for his lack of speed in the NFL. If he's lucky he'll be an Ed Mcaffery...really lucky.

                            What about his commitment to the game? Is he going to catch footballs or throw baseballs.

                            Jeff Samardzija is 6'5" -218lbs.

                            Rod Smith is 6'0" - 200lbs.

                            I don't think that's particularly similar as far as receiver molds go.

                            He is of no help to us in the return game, duplicates the position of Brandon Marshall and is not a first round need for this team.

                            Nevermind drafting Ginn, the "idiot"...If we waste a draft pick on Samardzija, i will be devastated.
