    just pointing out that because of his speed we dont just have to use him at wr. he could be vary vauluable to us in many different ways. hes even returned like 3 kick eturns in his career too. if he polishes his route running he will be an unstoppable force.
    Like Peter Warrick?

    I'm not an Ohio State fan (not an anti-fan, either) so I don't have pre-conceptions about his college success translating into him being a stud in the NFL.


    Peter Warrick is a valid comparison, IMHO.
    He was All-World in college and a big, fat nothing in the NFL.

    Now, look at the top receivers in the NFL:
    1 Marvin Harrison IND 29 413 14.2 0 38
    2 Laveranues Coles NYJ 30 412 13.7 1 46
    3 Andre Johnson HOU 30 410 13.7 2 53
    4 Roy Williams DET 25 384 15.4 1 42
    5 Reggie Wayne IND 18 358 19.9 0 41
    6 Marques Colston NO 20 336 16.8 3 86
    7 Torry Holt STL 26 332 12.8 3 42
    8 Santana Moss WAS 17 326 19.2 3 68
    9 Braylon Edwards CLE 17 324 19.1 1 75
    10 Muhsin Muhammad CHI 24 324 13.5 1 27

    Harrison, Williams, Holt & Edwards were HUGE studs in college.

    Coles & Moss were successful, but not gigantic stars.
    Coles was mostly known for the Athlete's Foot mess.

    And had anyone ever heard of Johnson, Wayne, Colston and Muhammad?

    It just doesn't translate as easily as you seem to think it was.
    And I still stand by my belief that Gonzalez will be a better pro prospect - as a RECEIVER - than Ginn.

    4. Mario Manningham. I haven't seen a lot of this guy at all but based on the videos I would put him here. Just like the rest of these guys, he looks like he has the big play ability on the college level. I would really like to watch a whole game with this guy playing like I have the rest of them.. Anyone know a lot about him?

    As a devoted Michigan fan, I see my fair share of Wolverine games.
    As far as Manningham goes, he is great at running one route (fakes in - goes deep).
    He drops a lot of easy passes and you can go long stretches through the game without hearing his name come up.
    I think he needs to work on his route running and hands before he can be considered a solid prospect at the next level.
    The good thing for him (and Michigan fans) is that he is only a sophomore and he has a lot of time to improve.
    In my opinion he will be wearing the #1 jersey before you know it.
