2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Bruce Ellington, WR , South Carolina

During his time at South Carolina, Bruce Ellington established himself as an athletically explosive slot receiver with some playmaking potential. A tad bit undersized, but dynamic enough to require lots of attention from defenses. Cousins with Andre Ellington, current RB with the Arizona Cardinals.

Fluid athlete. Can contort his body to make difficult catches. Very good hands. Displays great evasive agility. Not particularly strong. Looks to dodge or shake his way out of press man coverage. Lacks discipline as a route runner. Can get separation on just about anybody. Would be a nightmare with an accurate QB with a strong emphasis on the short passing attack.

Decent leaper but not strong enough to consistently challenge on 50/50 jump balls. Needs to do a better job of not allowing corners to redirect him during his routes. Decent catching radius. Can pluck the ball away from his body. Very rarely allows the ball into his frame.

Ellington projects as a late second round option in the 2014 NFL Draft.
