Ross was a four-star recruit in the class of 2012 and became one of the key pieces in the linebacker rotation in his time at Michigan. He was a four year letterman and started 21 of 50 career games in Ann Arbor.
Ross was inconsistent during his Michigan career, but always proved to be solid against the run and a linebacker that plays to the whistle on every snap. He showed solid skills in pass coverage, namely in zone. He has a good first step and a nose for the football.
Marginal athlete. Not a pass rusher and only three career sacks at Michigan. Not suited for outside linebacker in the NFL. Reaction time is slow and is not a player that can move sideline to sideline all that well. Saw the field less as his career went on.
It is tough to find a great fit for Ross at the next level, but he is a developmental prospect that a team may take a chance on, perhaps even to try out as a fullback. NFL ceiling appears to be that of a backup inside linebacker and special teams player.
Projection: Priority Free Agent
