You could question the Dolphins’ top-shelf receiver talent before the trade, but not their depth. Davone Bess is a great slot receiver, Greg Camarillo has been productive, and second-year player Brian Hartline showed promise as a rookie.
The Dolphins also have last year’s third-round pick, Patrick Turner, who was taken ahead of Hartline. Add it all up, and Ted Ginn looks like the odd man out. A few things stand in the way.
Will any team give up anything more than, say, a fifth or sixth-round pick for Ginn? We doubt it.
Ginn also brings something the rest of the group lacks — vertical speed.
We’ve heard Marshall called a “field-stretching” receiver, but that’s a misnomer. He’s a physical player that makes noise after the catch. He’s closer in style to Hartline and Bess than Ginn. (Of course, Marshall is the only one keeping defensive coordinators up at night.)
It’s hard to see where Ginn fits in this group, but it’s also hard to see another team giving up much for him.
