Bengals add some speed, draft John Ross at No. 9


There’s a run on wide receivers in the draft, and the Bengals just chose a receiver who can run.

With the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, the Bengals selected John Ross, wide receiver from Washington.

Ross set the NFL Scouting Combine record by running a 4.22-second 40-yard dash, so the Bengals now have the fastest player in the NFL, at least by Combine speed. Ross and A.J. Green will be a tough pair of receivers for opposing secondaries to stop.

There have already been three receivers taken in this year’s draft, with Corey Davis going No. 5 to the Tennessee Titans and Mike Williams going No. 7 to the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Not a bad pick up, but I thought Allen or Howard would be the way they went

    Ross is an injury head case. Look at his history. And he is tiny. He won’t last.

    Great pic. A burner.

    AJ Green approves of this pick.

    I think Tyreek Hill proved how explosive and valuable this type of player can be if on the field. Exactly the type of game changer the Bengals needed. So long as Andy has time to throw, this could wind up being a major steal.

    Yikes…AJ Green + Ross + Eifert + LaFell + Boyd (last year’s 2nd rounder)? Good luck covering everyone.

    Runs fast, but as fragile as Betsy Ross.
