Former OSU Buckeye and possible top 5 pick Ted Ginn Jr. will not be ready to go for the combines according to reports. Ginn, who took the opening kickoff back for the touchdown in the National Title Game loss to Florida, was injured in a celebration after the score and missed the remainder of the game, only adding to the Buckeyes doom. Word is that Ginn hopes to ready to go for the Ohio State Pro Day on March 10th, and if not, then he may have to go the task of scheduling private workouts for pro scouts.
Ginn has been working for the last few weeks with a speed and strength coach, but word is his sprained foot from that celebration at the title game is not ready to show off what he can do at the combines. The speedy Ginn is expected to be a top 5 pick in this April’s NFL Draft, ahead of former teammate and Heisman Trophy winner QB Troy Smith. If he plays like he did in college, he can not only be a burner at the wide out spot, but also can use his speed and size to run back kicks.
