NEW YORK (AP) - The Miami Dolphins have chosen Ohio State wide receiver Ted Ginn Junior with the ninth selection in today's N-F-L draft.
Ginn led Ohio State in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches in 2006, finishing with 59 grabs for 781 yards and nine T-Ds. He also had one touchdown as a punt returner, one on a kickoff and one on an option pass.
Ginn last season averaged over 24 yards on kickoffs and eleven yards on punts. He finished with one-thousand-548 all-purpose yards while helping Troy Smith win the Heisman Trophy.
Ginn's last huge play came in the B-C-S title game, when he returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown before spraining his left foot later in the first quarter.
Ginn is a bit on the small side for receivers at five-eleven and 178 pounds. He makes up for it with great balance and explosive speed that make him a threat on special teams. He has good technique and can roll up yardage after the catch. Ginn isn't very physical and generally plays close to the sidelines.
