Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior with 41 receptions/720 yards/5 TDs. Junior numbers included 30/381/1.
Positives: Adequately sized possession receiver who also helps out as a downfield blocker and special teams player. Gives effort running routes, comes back to the ball out of breaks and lays out or extends to make receptions. Makes the catch with defenders draped on him. Offers the quarterback a big target. Solid downfield blocker who seals running lanes for the ballcarrier.
Negatives: One-speed receiver who lacks a burst. Average production on the small school level.
Analysis: Elliott was consistent on the college field but never an outstanding player. He does the little things well, offers reliable hands and can play special teams, which could help him secure a roster spot as a fifth receiver.
