Andre Ellington’s skill set is different from other’s in the NFL. The former Clemson Tiger was a terror in college, but had a poor pro-day which eventually cost him his draft fall. He has great explosion but doesn’t have as much power as some backs in the NFL. He’s a smaller back — he stands at just 5-9 — and is the shifty, home run hitter to complement bruising Rashard Mendenhall for the Arizona Cardinals.
Ellington racked up 83 total yards, including a career-high 52 rushing yards on seven carries, in a Week 5 win over the Carolina Panthers. He played the same number of snaps as Mendenhall and could continue to get increased attention.
I like Ellington, people need to be targeting him, because if something happens to Mendenhall he could be a huge pick up.
