We all remember Luther Elliss the pass rusher of the Detroit Lions back in the day. Well his son Christian has been taught well because he is giving opposing quarterbacks fits in the backfield.
Christian has 11 siblings and his father is the defensive line coach at Idaho. His brother Kaden played on the Vandals as well.
Elliss success did not just begin at Idaho, he was the co-defensive player of the year in high school at Valor Christian. As a senior he racked up 65 tackles, 10 of those were for a loss and he also finished with 6.5 sacks.
Elliss would end up heading to Idaho to play for the Vandals, and as a true freshman he played in 11 games. He registered 30 tackles as a true freshman including 2 tackles for loss. He also registered an interception against South Alabama.
In 2018, Christian began to really tear it up. He finished 11 games as the teams middle linebacker. He was All-Big Sky Third Team as a Sophomore and led the team in tackles with 81. He has a knack for blocking kicks too, because he has long arms. Elliss stands at 6030 and weighs 233 pounds.
Last season, Elliss really began to put on a clinic. He finished the year with 104 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. That is in 11 games, which is very impressive for a pass rusher. Elliss is a special player with big time play making ability.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Christian Elliss is one of the best players in the FCS. He has a knack for stopping the ball carrier in the backfield. He has great length and speed. Having a father as your coach helps as well, especially when your father is an NFL veteran. Elliss will need another huge year in 2020, and hopefully he can finish the year with at least 5 more sacks. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
