First off, it's complete nonsense on stilts to suggest that you don't look at #2 WR in the first round. Every team in this league plays with 2 WRs, so its a starting position.
But putting that aside, you completely missed my point. As I said, if a team is looking for a #1 WR, then they will take someone else.
But many teams are looking for BPA or looking for game changers. That is what Ginn is.
I think he will probably go in the 11-20 range. If you look at those teams, not all of them are looking for a #1 WR. They will be interested in a game changer who can also be a #2 or #3. Those teams are:
10. Falcons (Lelie, Jenkins, Roddy White)
11. 49ers (Battle, ____ )
12. Bills (Evans, Price)
13. Rams (Holt, Bruce, Curtis)
14. Panthers (Smith, Keyshawn, Carter, Colbert)
15. Steelers (Ward, Holmes, Washington)
16. Packers (Driver, Jennings)
17. Jaguars (Williams, Wiliford, Jones)
18. Bengals (Johnson, TJ, Henry)
19. Titans (Bennett, Brandon Jones)
20. Giants (Burress, Carter, Moss)
I am not saying all of those teams are looking for WR. In fact, most of them aren't I would guess. But my point is this: the teams that are looking at WR don't all need a #1 WR. They need a compliment player. And they would look at what else that compliment player might be able to do.
I could see the 49ers looking at the #1 WR guys (Meachum, Bowe, Jarrett), but I think they are going to look defense. I could also see Tennessee looking for a #1 guy is Bennett leaves. If Bennett stays, they will still need a #2 to compliment him, so they might look at Ginn.
The Rams might look WR, but they don't need a #1 guy. They could certainly use a versatile game-changer like Ginn who would be the #3 guy behind Bruce and Holt (and develop to be Bruce's replacement next season).
Ginn would be a great fit for Jax. They have big WRs, but they could use a little burner to stretch the field. He would also be a valuable special teamer. So I really see him going there if he makes it to Jax.
My point is this: Ginn brings a unique player to the table. He can be your #2 or #3 WR but also be a game-changer on special teams. Teams with not a lot of holes will be interested in him because of his effect on the games. But not every team that is interested in Ginn will be looking for a #1 WR.
