Notes:

  • Has had major surgery on both knees
  • Very athletic, started at cornerback for three games, while playing for the Washington Huskies
  • Speed receiver, can absolutely rip the cover off a defense
  • Everybody outside of quarterback and offensive linemen boast about speed, but in John Ross’ case it is truly impressive
  • And has good moves after the catch
  • Speed forces cornerbacks to commit early to the deep pass, which opens up the curl and other come back routes
  • Not a big receiver
  • Good change of direction
