New Mexico State corner Winston Rose to work out for Rams

New Mexico State cornerback Winston Rose is looking forward to participating in the Los Angeles Rams' local prospect day this weekend in Oxnard, Calif. Rose played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl all-star game. "I'm excited," Rose said. "It's another opportunity to display my talents. It's a job interview." Rose ran the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. The 5-foot-11, 177-pounder had a 10-3 broad jump and a 36-inch vertical leap. He bench pressed 225 pounds 10 times. He had a 32 3/8 arm length, 9 3/8 hands and a 74 1/2 inch wingspan. Rose had a 11.13 60-yard shuttle and a 6.72 three-cone drill. Those are among the best of any draft prospect. "My skills, obviously my speed and my athleticism and my overall ball skills," Rose said. "Winston Rose as a person, I'm going to help a team. I have length and quickness. I want to improve on being consistent." Rose intercepted five passes playing for former NFL defensive coordinator Larry Coyer. "I feel that I'm ready for the next level defensive schemes because I played under Larry Coyer, a NFL Super Bowl coach, which I had my best season at New Mexico State," Rose said. Rose majored in individualized study with a minor in business. "I'd like to go into business, restaurant catering business and give back to youth," Rose said. An Inglewood native, Rose excelled on special teams. "I just want to make the 53-man roster and contribute on special teams and pretty much anything," Rose said ."I feel ready." Rose trains at IX Innovations with Abdul Foster and is represented by Houston-based agent J.D. Ogilvie, a former Utah State football player and Columbia University alumnus. Rose played at Los Angeles Valley Junior College before transferring and was a first-team all-conference selection. He had three interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. He was a first-team all-league wide receiver and defensive back at St. Genevieve High School. "Winston has everything you look for in a starting cornerback," Ogilvie said. "From his length, his agility, speed, the numbers he put up at his Pro Day are top tier in every single category. On top of that, he has gained 10 pounds since he's been out here in Houston. He has the natural skill set of a starting cornerback. He's going to get a chance to develop his skills and work his way to earning a starting role."
