NFL Comparison
T.Y. Hilton

Elite athlete who is extremely fast (4.22 forty). Good hands. Shows ability to separate off the line. Dangerous in the open field. Quick twitch athlete with a very strong double move.

Both knees have had major injuries. Tore his MCL (right knee) in 2014 then suffered a torn ACL (left knee) in 2015. Temper can run hot on the field. Can struggle at times against press coverage. Small hands for a receiver.

Ross is not just a fast guy. He can also run routes and catch the ball. Can play outside or in the slot. Probably best suited for a role similar to the way Indianapolis moves T.Y. Hilton around. The Huskies effectively moved him all over the field as a receiver. He could be the first receiver off the board or the third. It will depend on the draft, and whether they need a big body or take-the-top off receiver. He should be a mid-to-late first round pick.
