Welcome to another edition of the 2007 NFL Draft Recap! Thank you, thank you, you can gradually end the standing ovation.


This happens to be a very special draft profile. Ted Ginn, Jr. was drafted number ninth overall by the Miami Dolphins and I was actually able to sit down and talk to him about his NFL experiences so far.*

Andy Goldstein: Welcome, Mr. Ginn. Thanks for taking the time away from your adoring fans in Miami to talk to

Ted Ginn, Jr: (Laughs…Cries a little)

AG: Uh, anyway, all fantasy owners need to know, how’s the Lis Franc injury doing? The one you suffered while celebrating your Bowl Game touchdown return?

TGJ: Foot’s good, foot’s good.

AG: So you’ll be 100 per cent by the start of the season?

TGJ: Hell no.

AG: Ah, well, when you are healthy enough to go at full speed, you will be fighting for the top wideout spot, right?

TGJ: Nah, that’s Chris’ job. I’m here to return kicks and catch some balls.

AG: Okay, well, let’s talk long-term then. Why should the average dynasty owner keep an eye on you?

TGJ: It’s all about the speed, baby.

AG: Right, it’s world-class then?

TGJ: Just see for yourself.

AG: That’s pretty good. Okay, so you have great speed. How about your hands?

TGJ: Did I mention my quicks?

AG: Uh, yeah. And your route running?

TGJ: Speeed.

AG: What are your thoughts on the quarterback situation in Miami?

TGJ: C-Pep is the man. Well, at least he was when Randy Moss was catching his jump balls.

AG: It sounds like he might not be with the team come Week One.

TGJ: Oh, &$%@!. You guys know about that? We got Cleo Lemon.

AG: I see. What are your thoughts on Brady Quinn?

TGJ: I don’t get the big deal. If they took him instead of me, then he wouldn’t have an average third passing option.

AG: I suppose that’s true.

TGJ: Damn straight.

AG: Right. Well, it sounds like you’ll be a slow starter who, after a few seasons, might be a third or, perhaps, weak second fantasy option for a couple years before you finally lose the insane speed and go back to being ‘not-Brady-Quinn.’

TGJ: I think you forgot the Peter Warrick comparison.

AG: Well, I was trying to be nice.

TGJ: Oh, thanks.

* Or, maybe I imagined this whole thing.

  1. […] Once he gets up to speed on Indy’s offense, Gonzalez will try to alleviate pressure on teammates Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, who’ll draw plenty of attention. This is nothing new for Gonzalez though, who played opposite of the electrifying Ted Ginn, Jr. in college. Suffice to say, with Harrison, Wayne and Dallas Clark roaming the field on passing formations, Gonzalez should get outstanding opportunities to make plays. Most importantly, due to the prolific nature of the Colts offense, he’ll have a chance to produce touchdowns. […]
