25 Young NFL Players Who We Already Know Are Busts

WR John Ross (2017, Cincinnati)

The disappointing start to John Ross’ career is a story that feels all too familiar within the NFL. Ross leaped up draft boards after posting a record-breaking 40-yard-dash time of 4.22-seconds at the 2017 NFL Combine. With teams yearning for a speed threat on the outside, Ross flew all the way up to No. 9 overall in the draft — ahead of names like Patrick Mahomes, Marshon Lattimore and Deshaun Watson. Ross has been plagued with injuries ever since, though he hasn’t exactly been productive when he’s suited up. In 27 career games, Ross is averaging just 27.1 yards per contest.
