Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOHN ROSS: Washington, 5106 188 4.22. Started 18 games in his career. From Long Beach, CA. A speedster who is a top kickoff return specialist. Elite of elite top end speed. With his exceptional speed and acceptable height he can play outside receiver. Runs away from defenders with ease. His speed causes big cushion freeing up underneath routes. Cornerbacks are always trying to bail and run when they see him accelerating off of the line of scrimmage. Was always waiting for the football. Dynamic ability after the catch. Very natural at tracking the deep ball. Has good patience and savvy on route stems and double moves. Threat as a kick returner. Very nimble with quick feet. Doesn’t attack the football consistently on under throws. Chance he could struggle with corners who are able to get their hands on him. Doesn’t have great play strength so strong press corners could be an issue. Needs to refine intermediate and short route running ability. Doesn’t play strong. Has occasional open field trip and stumble on air. A little on the slender frame size considering his height. Ross is officially the fastest prospect in the history of the Combine. Dynamic playmaking outside and inside receiver. Finished the 2016 season with an impressive 17 touchdowns. Has similarities to DeSean Jackson coming out of college. A threat to score anytime he is on the field. He will give defensive coordinators issues with his top end speed for years to come. Could step in and contribute day one as a wide receiver and kick returner. Definite first round prospect. 2016 stats: 81-1150, 14.2 ypr, 17 TD. OSR:1/60. First round. (A-31 1/2, H-8 3/4, VJ-37, SS-DNP).
