Pat Ross C 6í4 295 Boston College
By: Robert Davis
Pat Ross had some big shoes to fill in 2003 stepping in for Dan Koppen who moved on to the NFL with the Patriots. He has filled in very nicely, starting every since Koppenís departure. As a junior in 2004, Ross was named to the Big East second team for his success on the field.
Ross is your typical Boston College lineman. He is smart, tough, and will never be outworked. He sets up quickly and can block on the move. Ross is a very good finesse blocker. His technique and footwork are excellent.
Finesse blocking is his game because he isnít very powerful at the point of attack. He needs to get stronger and bulk a bit for the next level. Despite his good footwork, his athleticism is marginal and he may have trouble at the next level with the quicker interior rushers.
With the success of BC lineman, Ross should be drafted. Dan Koppen wasnít very big or strong, but he has done very well in New England. He is not a physical standout, but his intelligence and work ethic should find him a role in the NFL. Ross will likely be drafted on the second day somewhere.
