I think it's clear Adrian Peterson is by far the best freshman running back in the country, and quite possibly the best running back in the country period. Are there any comparable players at the WR position?

I'd like to nominate Calvin Johnson of Georgia Tech. He was recently named ACC Rookie of the Year, he caught 46 balls for 776 yards for 6 touchdowns, and he was EASILY the #1 receiver for GT this year. What the stats don't capture though is the number of ridiculous highlight reel catches he made this season. If GT can find a quarterback with at least moderate ability to throw accurately and perhaps also a viable #2 receiver, I don't see why CJ can't find himself contending for All-American honors. It's too bad at least one of those two factors currently ain't there..

Down in Columbus there's a fella named Ted Ginn, Jr. The guy is just crazy fast.

5 rushes, 73 yards (14.6 yd/avg), TD
19 receptions, 281 yards (14.8 yd/avg), 2 TD
14 punt returns, 377 yards (26.9 yd/avg), 4 TD

TOTAL: 38 touches, 731 yards (19.2 yd/avg), 7 TD

All this with VERY limited playing time. This guy scored 18% of the time he touched the ball. Not too shabby, as far as I'm concerned.

Plus, factor in that he'll eventually play defensive back in addition to wide receiver, and he's going to be Chris Gamble. Only a lot better.

Lance Leggett, once he cures his occasional case of the dropsies, is going to be the next big reciever at Miami.

This year: 13rec 246yds 3tds 18.9avg in limited playing time, but he's shown already he's got GREAT home-run-ball capability.

I hope Brett's ankle is okay and he's able to go one more time around. He was an exciting player to watch last year and took a lot of physical abuse in the NFC Championship. Chances are he won't have the same pep, but he's a lot of fun when he's on.
