As If The Chiefs Need Any More Help, Ex-Clemson Star WR Justyn Ross Is Looking Healthy And Flashing The Ability That Once Made Him A Top Prospect

Resident Bengals person here, taking notice of Justyn Ross' exceptional training camp with the Kansas City Chiefs for a variety of reasons. Namely, this is a man who played on the same Clemson teams as Tee Higgins for two seasons, and in the first of those, Ross managed 1,000 yards on 21.7 yards per catch.

In the College Football Playoff all the way back around the New Year of 2019, this guy put up 12 catches for 301 yards and three TDs in two games, helping the Tigers and a true freshman quarterback named Trevor Lawrence to the national championship. Seriously Ross was one of the most impressive young wideouts I can remember bursting onto the scene.

Basically neck and spinal issues that required surgery threatened Ross' playing career and forced him out for the entire 2020 season. After a decent return in 2021, he went to the NFL, where he went undrafted due to his medical history. Understandable. Then, a foot injury struck that forced him to miss his entire rookie campaign as a pro.

With such serious injuries keeping him down so often of late, you'd think he'd be done. Nope. Not only does the camp footage of Ross show a potentially dynamic weapon for an already almost unstoppable Chiefs offense, but Patrick Mahomes is out here saying things such as this about Ross' progress:

COME ON, MAN. As loaded as the AFC is, you can't help but view Kansas City as a cut above everyone — Cincinnati included, despite the Bengals' 3-1 edge in recent head-to-head meetings. Bottom line: The Chiefs shipped away Tyreek Hill last season, didn't have Ross at all, saw Tyreek finish second in the league in receptions and yards in Miami…AND STILL won the damn Super Bowl.

If the Chiefs get anything from second-year wideout Skyy Moore, rookie Rashee Rice and/or Ross shows any of the dominant form he did at Clemson once the real games start, the rest of the NFL is in serious trouble. The ESP connection Mahomes and Travis Kelce already have makes KC hard to defend as is. OH. AND. They might've found another backfield gem in UDFA rookie Deneric Prince out of Tulsa.

We're one year removed from seventh-round Rutgers wonder Isiah Pacheco taking over starting duties at running back. If there was ever an argument to not pay a premium at the position, look no further than what Chiefs GM Brett Veach and his scouting department have done in hunting down these overlooked ball-carriers.

I mean like yeah sure fine cool bring on the competition, Chiefs. Nobody's afraid of you. You've only hosted the AFC Championship Game for the past half-decade and have maybe the already-second-best-quarterback-ever on your team. Possibly a top-three coach of all-time as well. Yeah. It's all good! We still gonna get you!!

More Justyn Ross highlights for the football purist who can appreciate them to the fullest and doesn't have to necessarily worry about him going against your team with any regularity.
