Ross has a lengthy injury history and he couldn't stay healthy during his rookie year. This spring, he's completely healthy. A big-play speedster in the vertical game and on shorter routes, Ross is a good match for Andy Dalton if the Bengals quarterback gets rid of the ball early and doesn't hang it up.


Ross' 2018 is essentially his rookie season after playing in only three games last year due to knee and shoulder injuries. He's taking the right steps this offseason, working with former Bengal T.J. Houshmandzadeh to polish his route-running and footwork. If he can stay healthy, he could overtake Brandon LaFell as the team's second-most targeted wideout. But that's a big "if" considering Ross' injury issues dating back to college. (May 6)

Bengals | John Ross wants to think less, relax (Thu May 17, 12:42 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross said he was thinking about everything he was doing in his rookie season and it took away from his talent. Ross said the coaching staff told him he performs better when he's himself and relaxes. A shoulder injury also got the best of Ross, who said he was trying to do more than he could because of it. 'You have to come in and prepare. I've learned that. It's growth and progression from here on [out].'

Our View: Ross went from shattering the 40-yard dash record at the Scouting Combine in 2017, to struggling through a rookie season where he couldn't get healthy, barely played and came away with zero catches. The best athletes in the world can perform at a high level with a calm mind, and we'll see if Ross can find some inner peace on the football field in 2018.

Bengals | John Ross feeling good (Tue May 15, 08:10 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross told the team's official website he 'couldn't ask to feel any better' than he does at the moment and suggested this is the best he's felt since his final year of college.

Our View: A top-10 pick in the 2017 NFL draft, injuries forced Ross out of the lineup for most of the year. He played only 17 snaps over a three-game span, with zero receptions gathered on just two targets. If Ross is healthy he still has tremendous speed...and there are shades of DeSean Jackson to his game. We'll see if the second-year pro can stay healthy and play up to his high potential for the Bengals as they could certainly use a deep receiving threat like Ross.
