Prospect Profile: Lydell Ross
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 225 40: 4.57 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Ohio State's top rusher the past two seasons totaling 117/475/4 as a senior and career numbers of 193/826/10 the prior campaign.
Positives: Well-built running back with solid/speed numbers. Displays vision as a blocker or ball carrier and adequate quickness. Quickly cuts back avoiding defenders, works his runs to the outside and keeps moving up the field. Squirts through the small openings and keeps his feet off initial contact. Picks up blitzes in pass protection blocking with forward lean and displaying strength at the point of attack.
Negatives: Lacks focus, concentration, and must improve his ball security. Has an upright running style and prone to taking big hits. Could turn up the intensity on a number of fronts.
Analysis: A prospect who flashes ability, Ross has the size and skill to play at the next level. Comes off a disappointing senior campaign.
