Ted Ginn runs a 4.38 40-yard dash

Wide receiver Ted Ginn ran three 40-yard dashes today during a private work out for NFL scouts. His best time was 4.38 seconds. During the drills he slipped on numerous pass routes and ended the workout early. This could indicate he's still having problems with his injured ankle or it could be due to the rainy conditions in Columbus, Ohio.

Ginn has seen his stock fall slightly after missing the combine and Ohio State's Pro Day due to his injury. While 4.38 is a good time, most scouts were expecting a little better number. Ginn will battle Robert Meachem, Dwayne Jarrett, and Dwayne Bowe to be the second receiver taken on draft day.

Ohio State's Pro Day

Ohio State's pro day lost a lot of it's excitement when Ted Ginn announced he wasn't going to participate. Ginn's ankle still hasn't healed from the injury he suffered in the National Championship game.

Troy Smith participated in all drills. Smith ran two 40s, in 4.65 and 4.71 seconds. He also posted a 36-½-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot, 2-inch broad jump. Smith also impressed with his arm strength during passing drills.

Running back Antonio Pittman and receiver Anthony Gonzalez did not run the 40-yard dash.

Seldom used receiver Roy Hall made the biggest impression during the day. At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds he ran a 4.35 40.

Ginn to skip drills at combine

Ted Ginn Jr announced he will not workout at the combine since his sprained left foot is not fully healed.

"Right now, I'm just going to weigh in, get my height measured, and take care of things like that," Ginn said over the phone on Friday. "I tried to get ready for Indy, but it wasn't a good time for me. I just have to wait for the next time."

Ginn hopes his ankle will allow him to work out during Ohio State's Pro Day on March 10th.

Ohio State juniors consider entering NFL draft

Four Ohio State juniors have asked NFL officials for an opinion on their draft status, signaling that they are considering leaving school a year early. Receivers Ted Ginn Jr. and Anthony Gonzalez, running back Antonio Pittman and offensive tackle Kirk Barton have sent in NFL paperwork for a draft evaluation.

Most expect Ginn, a probable first rounder, to go pro. Gonzalez doesn't receive the hype that Ginn does, but some scouts feel he's just as talented and could head to the NFL also. Pittman is expected to return to OSU.
