Brandon Ross, RB, Maryland – 2016

Vikings, UDFA.

Postseason Events: Shrine Game.

Positives: Adequate height for the position. While making moves, he continues to move forward to eat up space. Fair cutback vision. Fair stiff arm. Above-average track and game speed and burst – is able to push it outside. Okay balance after contact. Doesn’t waste much motion going sideways, and is pretty decisive behind the line – will make one cut and go. Above-average hands and can extend and go low for passes. Seems to have a strong lower body and is able to run through contact low on his body. Agility has improved over his career, and he can spin away from contact. Shows some patience in the open field and will follow his blockers. Over his college career, he has become slightly more dynamic behind the line. Keeps his balance pretty well through contact and will pinball through the line. Very good ability to change directions with burst in pro day tests. Above-average vertical leap and broad jump for the position.

Negatives: Slightly below-average bulk and below-average hand size for the position. Below-average lateral quickness in pro day tests, and it also showed when he tried to jump cut in games. Runs too upright through the line. Not very dynamic as a running back. Will cut block often rather than meeting defenders with leverage. Gets caught off balance as a pass protector when he tries to slide laterally. Suspect ball security technique through the line. Weak upper body.

Projection: Round 7-Undrafted free agent.
