It was widely assumed that Ted Ginn Jr. was obtained from Miami primarily to upgrade the Niners' woeful kick-return game. But almost a week into training camp, there was a lot more attention being paid to Ginn's work as a receiver, which camp observers agree has been very impressive. "He might have had a down year in '09, but he has played well," said one observer. "He gets deep pretty easily. He had a rap for being easily intimidated, but there was this one play where he was racing downfield, and he got stonewalled by Isaac Sopoaga. He shot right back up. If he can be the first deep threat (for the Niners) since Terrell Owens, he could open up routes and make a huge impact." And as a kick returner? "For now, it just looks like he's just in the mix with guys like Kyle Williams and LeRoy Vann," the observer said. "They've been much more concerned about his receiving."
