Read the post lol. I like Ginn as return man but unless he will come back for $2-3M a year there is no way we keep him. He was obviously detrimental to our passing game with his inconsistant hands and he was also part of our widespread problem of not getting separation. Bottom line is I blatantly said I was having some speculative fun with the idea that we lose both of our FA WRs and Rogers. Quit getting all angry that I said he wouldn't be re-signed in a mock draft because I wanted to find a way to imrpove our WRs and still find a viable KR(Josh Robinson, Chris Carr, Stephen Hill, etc)

idk why...but i see Stephen Hilll have BUST written all over him
According to our FO we have 3 starting caliber players on our roster in Brown, Culliver, and Brock. Carr would push both Cully and Brock for more playing time and act as a leader. Our defensive scheme is built to make players better(see Rogers' 8 career INTs before 2011, then 6 INTs in 2011), Goldson was even given more room to roam and had a career year on the backend.

His value is his returns. He's not much of a WR, but he'll be asking for WR money. That could be a sticking point.
Thank you Mayo, seriously I dont understand why people can't see this but like I said above I was just entertaining the idea that Ginn walks. By the way everyone I'm a big Ted Ginn supporter and wish he would play as a better WR because I would hate to lose him but if it comes down to it I could see someone thowing boatloads of cash at him because they think he could be their savior.

Your reason's don't hold much water.
1. Ok I'll give you this one.
2. We traded for Ginn so....
3. We drafted him late. It's common to cut late rounders.
You say we can't justify having a KR only on the roster but yet we can justify having Costanzo, Jones, & Gooden on the roster who only plays special teams? You people have short memories, just 2 years ago everyone of us complained about not having a decent KR guy on the team and how special teams was costing us the game. We finally get one and now we don't want to resign him?
But I do like your draft. I'm not sure if we pick up Hill that early but that maybe the only time we can get him.
Every team typically has 3 or 4 ST only players: which in our case was Costanzo, Gooden and Jones, I just dont see us getting read of very recent acquisitions to appease a 1 trick pony like Ginn(if he is over valuing himself), I love him as return man and want him back(see above quote that I have been cheering for Gin since he got here, I wish he would be a #3 WR but I know I'm kidding myself)
Yea I personally dont think Hill is a true 1st rounder yet, I've seen talking head/"expert" talk that he is still in the 2nd round range(along with other "experts" like Kiper saying he is an option for as #30 after the combine) but I think when he duplicates his 40 time at his pro-day he will definitely be a viable option at 30.

Love it, Colston, my draft crush Hill, rounds 1-4 are perfect. Only thing is I'd try to get some OL help in rounds 5-7.
Yea I wanted to find a OL but I dont think we really have need for it. JH uses the practice squad like an extension of the active roster, I'm sure if Goodwin got hurt with a high ankle sprain, Snyder would kick in to center, Kilgore would start at RG and Beeler would be brought up as a backup.
