Ross was highly productive at Mississippi State, where he caught 199 balls, for 2528 receiving yards, and 22 receiving touchdowns. He is a great pass catcher, he also runs great routes, he is also a dynamic playmaker, and is a go-to receiver. He also is a good deep threat, he goes up, and gets the ball, he makes spectacular catches look easy, he makes something out of nothing, and he catches everything thrown his way. He does look a tad smaller, and he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I expect Ross to be a day 3 pick, likely in the later rounds when it is all said and done.
