Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Dayvon Ross, WR, Central State
Dayvon Ross has quite the fan base and it is understandable. Ross is a bigger receiver with great hands and great routes. I was contacted by Rahim Moore of the Denver Broncos, who told me more about Dayvon, and when you have a guy that is in the league raving about a player you have to dig deeper. Ross has great skills and will be a very solid player at the next level. Teams have already shown interest in the Junior who decided to leave early after a wild college career path.
