Ranking the Pac-10's 30 best players: No. 27

No. 27

Ross
Devin Ross, CB, Arizona: Big corners are in vogue now, and at 5-foot-10, 178 pounds, Ross isn't big, but he has a chance of making it into the first day of the NFL draft this fall because of one thing: He's got cover skills. Just ask California, which saw Ross take an interception back 21 yards for a touchdown that broke open Arizona's 42-27 victory over the Bears, the Wildcats biggest win in 2008. Ross earned second-team All-Pac-10 honors after breaking up 13 passes and intercepting three. His 16 passes defended ranked 16th in the nation, and he also had 50 tackles. The Wildcats ranked 14th in the nation in pass efficiency defense and yielded just 12 touchdown passes, tied for second fewest in the conference with Cal.
