Fins sends draft bust Ted Ginn Jr to the Niners
Ted Ginn Experience is over in Miami as the Dolphins shipped him to the 49ers for a 5th round pick. While he has running speed his problem is his ability to catch the ball and running routes. (Johnny "Lam" Jones anyone?) He's an explosive returner (where speed comes to play) but a team can likely sign guy with a day job at anytime returning kicks at same level as Ginn does. (see Michael Lewis) Ginn was a risky high pick that backfire on the Dolphins. With Brandon Marshall on the team it made Ginn expendable. He has years to shed his draft bust status (see Thomas Jones) but if he couldn't turn it around in San Fran he will be one of worst picks from 2007 draft. Too bad his card on the left looks better than his on-field performance.
