Pos: 
Nice-sized running back with a hard-charging style. Runs behind his pads, keeps his feet moving and does not go down without a fight. Quick, has a burst and squirts through small openings in the offensive line. Picks his way through the trash, keeps his feet moving and falls forward when tackled. Displays vision and instincts and effectively helps the quarterback sell ball fakes. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield and makes the reception with his hands.
Neg: 
Possesses more of a short burst rather than breakaway speed. More of a straight-line ball carrier and really doesn't create yardage.
Analysis: 
Ellis is a well-rounded running back who can pick his way on the inside, get the tough yardage and catch the ball out of the backfield. He lacks great upside but has the makings of a fourth back at the next level.
