Both have potential but they're potential's where different. Houston showed to naturally have a great feel for how to stick with a guy and just needs to have experience while Ross still needs to get a good feel for how to stick with receivers. So both could be shut down, but Ross will need to be taught to be a shut down guy and Houston already knows, he just needs to work on it, plus he's younger. IMO Atlanta got the steal of the draft getting Houston in round two, and not Arizona getting Branch, who i also loved.
