Justyn Ross, a former Clemson star receiver, may not have heard his name called in April but his teammate Patrick Mahomes believes in him.
Ross was a great freshman for the Tigers. However, injuries and a severe medical condition kept Ross from realizing all his potential at the college level.
The Chiefs shared a video of Ross making a catch from the sideline on Wednesday. It got the NFL world talking.

Mahomes believes there is more to it.
The next day, Ross told reporters that despite everything, the four-star talent is still there.
“You still see the talent. That’s the first thing. I mean, I know people saw the catch on Twitter, but it’s just the way he catches the football out of the air. He snatches it. There’s no drops or anything like that.”
“Now it’s about him learning the NFL offense. … I think you’ve seen the flashes of how talented he can be, and then you’ve seen times where he did something just barely off what we wanted. And he learns from that. He doesn’t make that same mistake. And so the more and more reps that he gets, I can only imagine how good he’s going to be because of the talent that he possesses.”
If Ross’ body isn’t failing him, it’s not doubt Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes will find a way for Ross to be his best.
