There is no more risk with him at 16 than any other player who got hurt once or twice. As I said, Camp was always hurt in college, missed almost more games than he played every year, not Ross.

I agree, the biggest risk is the way the Ravens struggle to develop wide outs no matter where they draft them.

With that said, he is a polished receiver, has been working out with, for many years, pro players to hone his craft.

I doubt they take him or any wide at 16 though. I am more inclined to think they trade back, given their recent free agent moves.

So you are equating a 1st round #16 pick to a seventh round when it comes to risk?

Not at all. Ross had an acl and a meniscus, yet returned to play in each of the following seasons, playing in every game and, playing exceptionally well.

Camp miased games in every season with nagging, gnit-picking injuries. He showed a history of missing games each season, to most scouts, indication a lack of toughness, thus his fall all but out of the draft.

Ross has shown none of that, proof in his toughness, if you will, in that he played the receiver and punt return positions with a torn labrum and never missed a beat.

Knees, once repaired, once shown to be healthy, as in Ross's case, are rarely a problem moving forward, unlike hamstrings, or high anckle sprains or turf toe, which always have reoccurring issues.

Yes, I would take Ross at 16, for all the reasons I have stated in this thread plus a few more...

But at a 16 pick with that many injuries and the shoulder seems excessive to me.  Especially with the Ravens lack of ability in picking the position..
