Bio: 
Started at fullback his final three seasons at West Virginia. Named Honorable Mention All-Big 12 in 2015 and 2017. Rushed 35 times for 137 yards and one touchdown and caught 16 passes for 71 yards and three scores over his four-year career.
Pos: 
Large, nasty lead blocker with a bit of a one-dimensional game. Physical, explosive and always looks for someone to hit. Sets with a wide base, displays outstanding vision and easily turns defenders from the action. Effectively seals the corner for ball carriers and sets the edge on the outside.
Neg: 
Rarely asked to handle the ball and had just 30 rushing attempts and 13 receptions during his career. Limited long speed.
Analysis: 
Wellman possesses the size and mentality to be used in a lead-blocking role but comes with limitations.
