BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors every season since his junior campaign. Led Hawaii in tackles the past two
seasons, posting 121/10.5/4 as a senior with 141/12/1.5 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Elimimian is a fierce run-defending linebacker best playing downhill. His marginal change of direction skills and the lack
of ability to make plays when the ball is in the air will limit him. That said, Elimimian does play with a special teams mentality
and could surprise at the next level.
NEGATIVES: Undersized, slow to shed, and handled at the point by a single blocker. Does not show a quick change of direction or the ability
to immediately alter his angle of attack without losing momentum. Marginal skills in coverage.
ANALYSIS: Productive run-defending linebacker with good instincts. Recognizes assignments, fills the right gaps in run defense, and
has a quick burst to the action. Flows well laterally, displays a good head for the ball, and is a hard-hitting linebacker
who wraps up at the point of attack. Quarterbacks the defense and gets his teammates in proper position.
