Eleven NFL clubs attended a Monday workout for a defensive lineman eligible for the 2014 supplemental draft.

The Bears, Cardinals, Chiefs, Colts, Eagles, Falcons, 49ers, Patriots, Raiders, Rams and Texans watched former Virginia University of Lynchburg defensive lineman LaKendrick Ross go through drills, agent Glen Lansky told PFT on Monday night.

Multiple other media outlets first reported word of Ross’ Virginia workout, including WVEC-TV, NFLDraftDiamonds.com and National Football Post.

According to Lansky, Ross measured in at 6-foot-4 and 366 pounds on Monday. He is only 21 years old, Lansky told PFT.

Ross played just the 2012 season of college football at Virginia-Lynchburg before being ruled ineligible for 2013, his agent told PFT. He was slated to begin his collegiate career at Morgan State in 2011, but he never played for the school, according to Lansky.

The supplemental draft will be held this month.

  1. Josh Gordon was in the supplemental draft for a reason… easily the best talent found through it but…. there is a reason these guys are in the supplemental draft and not the real one.

  2. Who was it that told you guys all this info? You didn’t mention it 5 times in this 5 paragraph article.

  3. Cue the “RGme” moronic comments from the same old hacks with the multiple login names.

    Here is a young man that has discipline and work ethic instilled in him by two decorated retired US Army SNCOs…..a young man that is heavily invested in the DC community and the “Wounded Warrior” program…..a young man that has never brushed the law nor failed any drug tests….a young man that promotes positivity and self-respect…..a young man that is highly educated and well spoken. Athletes SHOULDN’T be role models, but he is.

    Robert is a young man that DESERVES to have a statue at Baylor because he embodies everything that institution strives to be.

  4. What the hell are the Bears there for. They don’t usually (as of the past few years) employ a DL in the high 300s. That would be something new. He must be quick on his feet!

  5. I’m curious how the NFL can turn this into a 3 night prime time event, but I’m sure they’ll find a way.

  6. Why is he in the supplemental draft? Might be interesting to know why he declared so early.

  7. Any defense that employs the 3-4 would be obliged to at least take a look-see at the guy. Who knows, I know nothing about him, but everyone knows it’s not just about size.

  8. He didn’t look fast.
    He didn’t look fit.

    There were no reports on his strength.

    ssssssso???

    You’re smart

  10. For all who are speculating, word is that he was ruled academically ineligible for 2014. According to several sites he has a massive “83.5” wingspan, ran a 1.81 unofficial 10 yard split, and was unofficially timed at a 5.4 – 5.5 40 yard dash time.” For reference his wingspan is longer than Jadeveon Clowney’s and he ran the 40 in about the same time as Louis Nix.
