Ginn is strictly a raw speed ball player with a sleight build.
Actually, Marvin Harrison is closer to 5'11 than he is 6'0. The media guides are always more generous.
It's interesting that you turned this into a HoF discussion. Why is that?
A guy can still be an impact player and not be a HoF candidate for whatever reason.
I'm just looking for a player with an impact. And as such let me give you two more ...
Santana Moss 5-10, 190 lbs; Laverneus (sic) Coles, 5-11 193 lbs.
Both have been in the league for several years and have benefited from weight training.
At 178lbs, Ginn can bulk up to 190 without losing that much speed if any. And he can learn how to run better routes sitting behind Glenn and TO for a year. It's not like he doesn't have the capability of doing it; he just needs the opportunity. And his ceiling is much higher than Austin's or Hurd's IMO.
