Prospect Profile: Dwight Ellick

Dwight Ellick School: Notre Dame
Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 185 40: 4.40 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Two-year starter who posted 44/2/7 as a senior after 19 tackles the prior year.

Positives: Top athlete with excellent size/speed numbers. Fluid transitioning to run with opponents and quick to close on a play. Displays ability backed off the line of scrimmage facing the quarterback.

Negatives: Does not do a good job reading receivers' eyes or turning back to the ball. Not a physical cornerback. Does not time his defenses well. Marginal skills in man-to-man coverage.

Analysis: Still more athlete than football player, Ellick is a track and field sprint champion who has yet to translate that speed onto the football field. Needs a lot of work and repetition yet his computer numbers make him worth a look.
