Lacks a great first step firing off the football in the run game. Possesses good size, but isn't a real powerful striker and struggles to generate leverage at the point of attack. Lacks body control into blocks and typically ends up on the ground. However, he is a fighter and a real blue-collar type blocker who exhibits long arms and consistently scraps till the whistle. Has some experience at right tackle as well. However, just isn't real rangy/coordinated on his kick-slide and will struggle with speed off the edge.
Impression: He's just a guy. Possesses a big frame and works hard to stay engaged. But is really going to struggle vs. the caliber of athlete in the NFL."
Positive: Hard-working small area right tackle with limited upside. Goes after assignments, blocks with good lean, and works until the whistle blows. Keeps his feet moving and controls defenders once engaged at the point.
Negative: More for an arm wrestler and does not correctly places hands into defenders. Not light on his feet and looks unathletic at times.
Analysis: Ellis has the size to play the next level yet has been an average college tackle who really never took his game to another level."
