    Raiders Attend Workout for Lakendrick Ross - Supplemental Draft Prospect

    Raiders attend supplemental draft workout for massive defensive line prospect

    http://www.silverandblackpride.com/2...ssive-prospect

    The Raiders were one of 11 or 12 NFL teams in attendance at the workout for supplemental draft prospect Lakendrick Ross as first reported by Draftdiamonds.com. Ross is a massive 6-4, 366-pound defensive tackle out of Virginia-Lynchburg.

    He played at Virginia-Lynchburg in 2012 and was transferring to Morgan State but was ruled ineligible so he opted to hire an agent and declared for the supplemental draft instead.

    Other teams also said to have attended the workout include the 49ers, Bears, Cardinals, Chiefs, Colts, Eagles, Falcons, Patriots, Rams and Texans.

    The interest in a player of his size is understandable. Adding to his intrigue is his surprising athleticism for such a large man. As shown here with Ross dunking a basketball:

    Interesting, a big DT for sure. I wonder what round they would consider using for him in the supplemental draft if they think he is draftable.

    It looks like the supplemental draft is on July 11th so we should know soon enough.

    even if we don't draft him, I'd still definitely pull for him. From what he said during his interview, he sounds like a great guy and someone who has overcome a lot of adversity.
    RAIDERS. ARE. BACK.

    Few supplemental picks pan out...not saying he won't, but the odds aren't in his favor, imo...

    So hard for a supplemental guy to keep up. But, a run stuffing, two man taking DT would be one of the easier positions to learn, but will more than likely be sitting on the PS for a year. we got Ellis in the 4th, 4th-5th at best.

    I know my job is on the line!!

    Berr, you can put your sig on the Boyz forum now.

    PS, I actually hope Rolondo rebounds.

    I would pass on him in any early rounds. He needs a lot of development that I don't think we could give him. He did not impress me needs a lot of work. He has the physical tools but so do many people who don't make it in the NFL. If he is still there around the 5th or 6th round however I would consider it..

    And you are what your record says you are.
    Sure liked the two years before DA and RM 1 game away from playoffs.
    And some say we are better off today.

    I think he would be worth risking a 6th or 7th round pick on. Besides, the way Reggie likes to trade back he should easily be able to get the pick back next year during the draft.

    Hey maybe he has a Josh Gordon type impact (not the off the field issues)

    That is an incredible feat. The record is 51 by Justin Earnest back in 1999, 47 would put him at third right behind Stephen Paea who had 49 in 2011. Still, that by itself doesn't warrant spending a pick on him.
