Wow. Ross is really good. He will be a star at the next level. Best WR/play maker to come out of UW in a long time. He should be a top 10 pick imo. But, I'd love it if he somehow ended up a Hawk. Dude's a beast.

This stuff is all fun and games since we have nothing else to talk about, but I'll be more worried about measurables such as yards, TDs or receptions.

Kid's the real deal. He's not a one-trick pony. Runs good routes, dynamic in the open field. Not a real weakness. He could be special at the next level.

yeah cool story but hot air. he doesnt seem to have the strength to dominate against big, physical corners in pros. needs to bulk up just to stay on the field next level, judging by his injury history.

I don't get why they don't run these drills in pads...

I don't know enough about this guy to make a judgement on him, but there is a difference between game speed and measureable speed

Some guys are just better at track & field then others, which is what the combine basically is

Being able to change direction without losing a step is more important than straight line speed as well

On my flight yesterday Snoop Dog was discussing him since John Ross played in his league. It seems like Ross has always had good character. I wish him nothing but the best.

Good for him, impressive to be that fast.

That being said, the 40 is so freaking dumb. Might be the most overrated workout at the combine.

He reminds me of Ted Ginn Jr. Incredible speed, but lacks route running and strength. In any case there's always room for speedy guys in the league, just look at the name Tyreke Hill made for himself granted he's a bit more on the physical side.

He did have a knee injury. His sophomore or Junior year. Only red flag.

As someone who has watched him. He actually is a good route runner. Also has a great catch radius to go with the speed. He's not a big WR. But it also isn't required to play the position. He should absolutely be a 1st round pick. Top 15. 10 maybe?

I jest. I'd have him on my team. I saw enough of him against USC.

With the right team, and with that speed, he will light it up.

40 is useless distance to measure top end speed, Ross is s great starter but seriously lacks top end speed, evidence right here.If that kid Myles Valentine ever tries for football NFL teams should be calling, :lol:

Lots of guys in the NFl practice squad faster than this guy over distance longer than 40 yards, he either becomes another Tyreek Hill or busts like Dri Archer.

He won't be a bust. The only thing that could potentially hold him back is his health. Too good of a player otherwise.

The Pac - 12 and their players are always way over hyped and rated.
