Most mock drafts projected former Clemson wide receiver Justyn Ross to be a day two or early day three prospect, but after Ross waited and waited for hours, he went undrafted, sending Twitter into a frenzy.

Similar to Andrew Booth Jr., Ross’ biggest concern heading into the draft was his injury history. He missed the entire 2020 season because of spinal surgery and battled through a foot injury in 2021 that forced him to miss three games.

It seemed like Ross’ injury history was the main reason for his fall, but even with his struggle to stay healthy, the upside for the wideout is massive.

On one of the most inconsistent offenses last season, Ross had a team-high 514 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 46 receptions. As a freshman in 2018, Ross had 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns on 46 receptions. He followed that season up with a strong sophomore campaign, recording 865 yards and eight touchdowns on 66 receptions.

Ross will now try to find his team as an undrafted free agent.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Ross not being drafted.
