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.
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:
The workout took place at Norcom High School in Portsmouth, Virginia. Here is a report on Ross' journey to where he is today.
The Raiders drafted a big defensive tackle in the fourth round of the draft when they grabbed Justin Ellis out of Louisiana Tech. He is expected to compete with Pat Sims for the starting nose tackle job.
