Ross had microfracture surgery in January 2015 to repair the two meniscus tears in his right knee and then aggravated that knee injury during a practice to prepare for the 2015 season.

Initially, Ross only participated in spring training by running at half-speed. Reports indicate that he appeared to reinjure the knee while doing non-contact light running drills on April 17, 2015.  That “reinjury” forced him to sit out the 2015 season.

But he came back with a vengeance in the 2016 season, helping the Washington Huskies to compete for a national title, and giving the program plenty to build upon. In the 2016 season, he held up well.

Now, he stands at the cusp of the 2017 NFL Draft.  What does he offer? Just watch:

What They Are Saying?

At NFL.com, they are saying plenty

"The scoop: “John Ross is probably the fastest player in college football right now and I think he’s going to end up being a better pro than Brandin Cooks. (Jake) Browning is a solid quarterback, but Ross is making his life really easy.” — NFC scout on the Washington WR"

That’s a solid endorsement. Brandon Cooks was drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft at number 20.
