2013 NFL Draft: Gem of the Week- Andre Ellington

Andre Ellington- Daniel Shirey

Daniel Shirey- US Presswire

 

With the college football season finished, seniors say “good-bye” to their teams as they prepare to enter the NFL Draft. An under-dog this year will be Clemson running back and captain Andre Ellington.

Ellington had a solid year rushing for over 1,000 yards and scoring eight rushing touchdowns. He is one of the smaller running backs in the draft pool this year, but he may have the best vision out of any of the backs who has top speed.

His burst in the NFL has a chance to be incredible, and with his vision, he could be a big play maker as a third-down back. The one thing Clemson failed to do with Ellington that he could really become great at is being a receiving scat-back. He has the speed to bust open in the open field. He had only 14 receptions in college, but averaged 14 yards for every catch.

Ellington is expected to go  late in the second round or early in the first, but honestly, he has the ability to be drafted in the top 50 picks of the NFL Draft. He has the talent and the positional value to be an x-factor type of situation player.

Expect a team with a heavy passing game to go for Ellington, a team that would use screens in certain situations for a player. In a passing league, it should be anticipated that a team will over-value him, but he will be a contributing player to whatever team wants him.
