Slow-healing Ginn underwhelming in workout Ohio State WR/RS Ted Ginn Jr. was finally able to perform for NFL scouts on Wednesday, just 17 days prior to the 2007 draft (April 28-29). For starters, Ginn participated only in the 40-yard dash and position drills, which means NFL teams have no shuttle times or leaping results to record on him. He ran three 40-yard dash attempts in the 4.4-second range (4.41, 4.45 and 4.49). Those are good times for most but hardly to the world-class standards Ginn was expected to achieve. For comparison purposes, Ohio State's No. 4 receiver, Roy Hall, was timed by some scouts in the high 4.3-second range during last month's pro day -- and Hall is 6-foot-2 and 229 pounds. It's important to note that trainers claim Ginn's foot injury is only 75-percent healed at the moment. While it helps explain his unspectacular 40 times, it does not ease concerns regarding his durability issues. Doctors expect Ginn to return to full form in the near future, but NFL teams are understandably worried about his recovery time. After all, he suffered the injury celebrating a touchdown return in the national championship game more than three months ago. The 5-foot-11, 178-pound receiver caught the ball well in drills, but he noticeably began to favor his foot midway through the session. As always, it's important to put these workouts in perspective. It doesn't take much game-tape to diagnose Ginn Jr. as one of the fastest players in the class when he's 100-percent healthy. On the flipside, it doesn't take much time in the film room to recognize his weaknesses as a receiver, which includes inconsistent focus, poor route-running skills and a general lack of toughness. With that in mind, Wednesday's workout in Columbus could not have done much to sway scouts' opinions one way or the other. Still, it's safe to say Ginn was underwhelming. Now that all the information is in, here's how I rank the top-10 wide receivers in the 2007 draft class: 1. Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech -- Most talented athlete in this year's draft. 2. Dwayne Bowe, LSU -- Didn't run especially well, but a steal if he slips to the bottom half of Round 1. 3. Ted Ginn Jr., Ohio State -- Overrated receiver but explosive return ability makes up for it. 4. Robert Meachem, Tennessee -- Second-round receiver on film; 4.3 speed gets him drafted late in the first. 5. Dwayne Jarrett, USC -- Better prospect than Mike Williams (Lions) but still will disappoint in the NFL due to poor separation skills. 6. Steve Smith, USC -- Underrated talent; should be a good No. 2 or great No. 3 WR in the NFL. 7. Anthony Gonzalez, Ohio State -- Better pure receiver (hands, routes and toughness) than Ginn Jr. 8. Sidney Rice, South Carolina -- First-round height, athleticism and leaping ability, but Day 2 burst and strength. 9. Craig Davis, LSU -- Tremendous athleticism and speed but questionable toughness. 10. Jason Hill, Washington State -- Third-round prospect, will get over-drafted due to excellent 40-time. Conduct policy fallout NFL commissioner Roger Goodell delivered the message loud and clear on Tuesday, when he released the league's new personal conduct policy shortly after announcing the suspensions of Tennessee CB/RS Adam "Pacman" Jones for the 2007 season and Cincinnati WR Chris Henry for eight games. Although it hasn't always appeared to be the case, all 32 NFL teams annually perform extensive background checks on each potential draft prospect. Some teams simply weigh their findings more heavily than others. However, with Goodell putting the issue of conduct on center stage, personnel departments across the league are expected to be more cautious than ever when it comes to drafting players with red flags on character. Cal RB Marshawn Lynch, Florida DE Jarvis Moss, UNLV CB Eric Wright, Miami S Brandon Meriweather and Florida DT Marcus Thomas are some of the most talented prospects anticipated to pay the price in April's draft. With Henry gone for half of the regular season, Cincinnati should be forced to alter its draft plans slightly. The Bengals still boast one of the league's top receiver tandems in Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, which combined for 2,450 yards and 16 touchdowns on 177 receptions in 2006. But the suspension to Henry and the free-agency departure of Kelley Washington leaves the Bengals with serious depth issues at the position. The team's most pressing needs are still on the defensive side of the ball, particularly at cornerback, defensive tackle and outside linebacker. However, it must now consider using a Day 1 choice on a potential No. 3 receiver such as LSU's Craig Davis (second round) or East Carolina's Aundrae Allison (third round) instead of drafting a defensive prospect with that pick. Jones' year-long suspension will have an even greater impact on the Titans, who are already faced with relatively pressing needs at wide receiver, running back and defensive line. Signing Nick Harper gives the Titans the No. 2 cornerback they needed at the beginning of the offseason. They also have quality depth at the position with Reynaldo Hill, Andre Woolfolk, Cortland Finnegan and Michael Waddell. Only problem is they no longer have a No. 1 corner opposite Harper. Making matters worse, Jones' suspension and the free-agency departure of Bobby Wade (Vikings) leaves the Titans without their top two return specialists from 2006. Tennessee has 10 picks in the upcoming draft, including five in the first 128 selections overall. The team would ideally like to spend its first-round pick (No. 19) on a cornerback like Darrelle Revis (Pittsburgh) or a wide receiver like Ginn Jr. who can double as a return man -- but that's expecting too much from a rookie. Interestingly enough, the Bengals at No. 18 overall could steal one of the Titans' targeted players one pick earlier. Regardless, don't be surprised if Tennessee adds an experienced returner via free agency or trade, in addition to using a Day 2 draft on a return specialist such as Kansas State's Yamon Figurs. The Bears must prepare for life without DT Tank Johnson, whose suspension is expected to be announced once he's finished serving a four-month jail sentence for violating probation in a 2005 gun case. Lance Briggs' threats of a season-long holdout only make matters worse. Even if they fail to unload Briggs in a pre-draft or draft-day trade, the Bears can't expect the disgruntled outside linebacker to be part of their future. With those two scenarios in mind, the defending NFC champs suddenly are faced with some pressing needs to address. In addition to those concerns at defensive tackle and outside linebacker, Chicago would be wise target a pass-catching tight end and depth at wide receiver in the upcoming draft. With just one pick at the bottom of each of the first four rounds, GM Jerry Angelo does not realistically have enough ammunition to solve all his team's personnel issues in this year's draft.
