Elliott is an elite running back prospect and despite there being a bit of a concern with drafting running backs high he should to in the top 15, and perhaps even in the top 5 of the draft. Elliott dominated the competition at the college level the past two seasons, with many of his top games coming against quality competition. In 2014 over a three game stretch Elliott ran for 896 yards and 8 TDs against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon to secure the Buckeyes National Championship.
Elliott is a complete back who can beat you inside or outside and can just as easily pick up a tough first down as he can break a long run. Though he hasn’t had to be used much as a receiver, he’s shown some natural hands and route running ability. Combined with his speed and agility he could be a nice threat out of the backfield at the next level.
There really aren’t any pressing negatives surrounding Elliott, which makes him one of the more interesting backs to come out of the draft in recent years. Barring any serious injuries, there is little reason to believe that he won’t quickly become one of the top backs in the league.
