John Ross – WR, Cincinnati Bengals
Full of speed, but thus far failing to live up to his lofty potential, Ross has the chance to be a low-risk, high-reward addition for a team at the trade deadline and there’s no reason that team can’t be the Giants.
Ross was the runaway MVP, quite literally, of the 2017 NFL Combine, when the former University of Washington receiver ran the 40-yard dash in 4.22 seconds.
Unfortunately for Ross and the Cincinnati Bengals, that track star speed has yet to translate into on-field production in the NFL.
Last season, Ross flashed some of that big-play potential, while averaging 18.1 yards per reception, but he has caught just two passes for 17 yards this season.
If the price is right, and Gettleman can pry Ross away for a late-round draft pick, lining him up opposite Slayton could give Jones two receivers capable of taking the top off of defenses and allow offensive coordinator Jason Garrett to move the Giants’ offense significantly more vertically.
