Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 49/13/11. Junior totals included 44/11.5/10.5.
Positives: "Productive college pass rusher with marginal size/speed numbers. Breaks down well, plays with good pad level, and gets off the snap with a quick first step. Uses his hands to protect himself, changes direction well, and keeps his feet driving up the field on contact. Deceptively strong, holds his ground against blocks, and flashes speed off the edge. Plays with good balance and works hard."
Negatives: Slow regaining playing form off the initial block. Has marginal closing burst and displays limited ability in pursuit.
Analysis: Elmore was a productive three-year starter and who made a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage for Arizona. He lacks the size to line up in a three-point stance at the next level and does not possess the speed to be an outside linebacker. Elmore projects as a nickel pass rusher who could develop into a defensive end as he fills out his frame.
