I like the Ginn comparison a lot, too - question is:

Where would Ginn go in a re-draft? He was obviously pretty huge bust for where he was drafted, but it's not like he's bad. What's the value of a part-time offensive player with elite speed who could give you a return TD or two every year?

well the fact that he doesn't really offer an NFL position is what bothers me most. Ted Ginn isn't that much of a receiver, but he had a position to work at. McCalebb doesn't have the bulk to be a runningback in the NFL and isn't used as a traditional runningback much. We'll see, this season could be different.

...Does McCalebb have better hands than Ginn? It's probably not a stretch to suggest he may. Maybe he just moved to wide receiver. Maybe he plays a Percy Harvin role. Not as elusive (or strong) as Harvin, but that might be what we're looking at. I really don't see a "running back" either. I see a fast guy with good hands and vision. A broken field runner. Still trying to think if there's a guy in the NFL who McCalebb might play a similar role to, but Ted Ginn/Dexter McCluster/CJ Spiller seem the most similar to me. Jerrious Norwood, maybe? Maybe a destitute man's Chris Johnson? He's not real shifty; more of a field-stretcher like McCalebb. You wouldn't think so putting them side-by-side, but from a style and production standpoint, maybe Felix jones, too.

And obviously, all those guys are at least good enough that everyone knows who they are. Maybe a cross between Ginn and Norwood, or something.

I think you are giving him way too much credit at the moment at the running back position. He's not in any of those player's league at playing the traditional position. I hope he shows that he can at least be a slot receiver with his abilities, because with his size I don't see him being able to be anything in the backfield for more than a gadget play.

I thought about third down back, but he is too frail to pass protect while being lanky and doesn't look like he has a low center of gravity. Do I think he could play receiver? absolutely, the NFL coaches take players with average abilities and can turn them into very productive players. If he shows he has the consistent hands of a receiver, he could be a gadget player while running the ball, but actually have an NFL position in receiver.

This just popped into my head - would you rather have McCalebb or Denard Robinson?

Denard Robinson, pure prole genetics with wiggle. The fact he refuses to tie his shoes tells me he reserves his mentally capacity specifically for the motor cortex. He does not overwelm himself.

Wow, jentakins. What an insightful first post. College football?
