Former University of Washington wide receiver John Ross, a potential first-round pick in this year’s draft, needs shoulder surgery but is putting it off until after the Scouting Combine.

Ross plans to undergo most Combine drills despite having a torn labrum.

As a junior at Washington last year, Ross caught 81 passes for 1,150 yards. He led all Power 5 receivers with 17 touchdowns.

Heading into the Combine, Ross is generally recognized as one of the Top 3 wide receivers in the draft, along with Clemson’s Mike Williams and Western Michigan’s Corey Davis.

    His career will certainly result in either of the following two ways:

    (1) Desean Jackson or (2) Ted Ginn Jr.

    Doug Whaley just penciled him into the #10 spot. Seriously though, I like this kid better than Willams and the WMU kid. I don’t think Williams creates enough separation with his speed and it will be more evident in the pros. I question the level of cometition in the MAC, but the kids consistent.

    It was obvious last year before injury, Ross was special. He made it through his junior year without missing a game, but one knock on him is he runs loose with the ball…causing a few fumbles. I hope he can stay healthy, because he is fun to watch.
