Where Ross is now.
The word “oops” is probably the most appropriate for the Bengals when it comes to Ross. He was sixth on the depth chart heading into his rookie season and fumbled the ball on his first-ever NFL touch, which was a 12-yard rush. He was subsequently benched and either injured or a healthy scratch the rest of the season, failing to catch a pass all season. Ross managed to bounce back in 2018, starting 10 games and catching 21 passes, including seven touchdown grabs.
Considering he was a top-10 pick, he’s hard not to see him as a bust, especially after the glowing report listed above. With the Bengals still relying on Andy Dalton, it has to hurt a little that they took Ross one pick before Mahomes came off the board.
