Patriots Attend Pro Day of Lakendrick Ross

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Supplemental Draft is this Friday, and the Patriots were reportedly in attendance for the Pro Day of defensive tackle LaKendrick Ross.

The NFL's Supplemental Draft is scheduled for this Friday, and the New England Patriots have shown interest in one of the top available prospects. According to Damond Talbot, the Patriots were one of twelve teams attending the Pro Day of Virginia University of Lynchburg defensive tackle Lakendrick Ross Monday.

To be honest, I haven't seen even a single snap played by Ross.  But he is intriguing for two reasons: size and athleticism.

According to Talbot, Ross measured in at 6'4" and 366 lbs with an 83.5 inch wingspan.  He unofficially ran a 1.81 in the 10 yard split and between a 5.4 and 5.5 in the 40.

No team is likely to use a high pick on Ross, but it wouldn't be surprising to see a team use a 7th round selection or perhaps pick him up if he goes undrafted through the process.  The Patriots have a plethora of defensive tackles on the roster, but have taken on similar projects before, such as college wrestler turned defensive tackle turned offensive guard Stephen Neal.

Some team, perhaps the Patriots, could stash Ross on their practice squad for a year and develop him for 2015.  In all likelihood, that team won't be the Patriots, but Ross will remain a player to keep an eye on this Friday.

And before I forget, here's a video of this very big man dunking a basketball:
