John Ross is getting rave reviews already, which is rather rare before the NFL Combine takes place.  But his highlights have brought out the accolades.

FanSided’s NFLMocks.com own Sam Beckenstein has written an article on Ross just on 14 January 2017, where he is very impressed by the young receiver:

"Overview: Ross is a top notch playmaker at the college level who can make any defense respect the deep ball with blazing speed, and great ball tracking ability. He’s a versatile product who can help whichever team drafts him on special teams in the return game, and be plugged into their offense immediately. There are understandable size concerns, but Ross is a deep threat like one of the NFL’s best and should be one of the first four receivers off the board.

He is not the only one to compare Ross to “DJax”. He won’t be the last, either. Rob Rang from CBSSPorts draws the same conclusion:

"20. John Ross, WR, Washington, rJr, 5-11, 190, 4.35 With all due respect to sophomore quarterback Jake Browning, Ross is the fireplug sparking Washington’s high-octane offense (and special teams). A DeSean Jackson clone with blinding straight-line speed, agility and versatility as both a receiver and returner, he is only a clean medical grade away from becoming the first receiver from Washington to earn a first-round pick since Reggie Williams in 2004."

So far, the writeups are very similar. But now we have a new matter.. .that “clean medical grade”. Since it’s been mentioned, lets investigate:
