With the 9th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected University of Washington wide receiver John Ross, a former member of the Snoop Youth Football League.

Ross grew up in Snoop's native Long Beach, California and according to "Coach Snoop" the kid has the most potential of any player that's ever come out of his youth league. 

The 22-year old speedster ran a 4.22 40 at the NFL Draft Combine and will have plenty of opportunities to shine lining up alongside Bengals Pro Bowl wideout A.J. Green.

Check out what Snoop had to say about John "PeeWee" Ross and his journey to the NFL below.

Coach Snoop is for the kids for real. I love this!!!! @snoopdogg #JohnRoss3
