Bio: 
Three-year starter at nose tackle who made 19 tackles (2.5 for loss) in 2016. Earned Second Team All-Sun Belt honors as a junior with 33 tackles (3.5 for loss) and 2.5 sacks. Named Honorable Mention All-Sun Belt in 2014 after making 36 tackles (four for loss) with two sacks.
Pos: 
Quick, explosive three-technique prospect. Fires off the snap, plays with good lean and easily changes direction. Shows the ability to pursue down the line of scrimmage and make plays outside the box. Battles hard throughout the action.
Neg: 
Gets a little tall as the play proceeds and makes himself an easy target for opponents. Average strength at the point.
Analysis: 
Ellison flashes ability and offers the size as well as playing style to get consideration as a three-technique tackle. He must improve his strength and consistently play with proper pad level to have any opportunity of getting out of camp this summer.
