Atiyyah Ellison School: Missouri
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 305 40: 5.05 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Junior college transfer who's started the
past three seasons winning All-Conference
honors as both a senior and junior. Posted 60/
12.5/2.5 last season after 72/14/4 the prior year.
Positives: Nice-sized athletic prospect still trying to
translate his natural abilities onto the football
field. Quick off the snap, plays low with leverage
and breaks down well. Strong at the point, tough
to handle and fluid changing direction, displaying
the ability to get out to the flanks and chase
the action. Possesses a closing burst of speed
and plays with a good degree of suddenness.
Slides off blocks, easily redirects to the action
and brings ball carriers down on initial contact.
Negatives: Does not play with great balance and easily
knocked off his feet. Must improve his hand
technique and moves to get around blocks.
Not quick locating the action nor very instinctive.
Analysis: Possessing good size/speed
numbers as well as growth potential for the next
level, Ellison continually flashes ability, yet has
shown little consistency. At times looks more like
an athlete running around the football field rather
than a defensive lineman making plays. Needs
time and one-on-one coaching, yet offers a good
degree of upside potential.
