BIOGRAPHY: Junior college transfer who broke into the starting lineup last season and totaled 41/3.5/2. Rotated at defensive end as a junior and finished with 10 tackles.
POSITIVES: Underrated defensive lineman who showed a lot of ability last year. Very quick off the snap, is strong at the point of attack and holds his ground against blocks. Shows a fluid change of direction with the ability to make plays down the line.
NEGATIVES: Slow shedding blocks. Must develop more moves and protect himself with better hand technique.
ANALYSIS: Displayed a lot of progress on the field last year. Ellis is a developmental player with potential as a rotational lineman.
