The New York Giants continued on Thursday to shuffle their 80-man roster, waiving undrafted free agent linebacker Dominique Ross.

Ross, a 6-foot-4, 228-pound linebacker from North Carolina, was a coverage specialist for the Tar Heels.

This is what Emory Hunt said about Ross in the 2020 Football Gameplan Draft Guide:


Good athleticism; versatile player, who can also play OLB. At times you’ll see him walk out over No. 2 in coverage. He looks very capable in zone. Also able to cover backs in man coverage.

Good quicks to be an effective blitzer.

Shows good technique in using his hands to shed blocks.

Areas of Improvement:

Has to be a bit more forceful at the POA; at times he’ll wait and see before reacting; You can tell that he’s stuck in that grey area of being an OLB & ILB. Because of that, he’s probably a guy that you’ll have in on obvious passing downs, as his coverage skills are solid.

Could stand to get stronger and add some mass without losing speed and athleticism.

There was hope that Ross might be able to become a coverage linebacker at the pro level. He won’t get that chance with the Giants now.
