Todd Mcshay thinks Bruce Ellington will go in the 1st round.
 
"With the No. 26 pick in the draft, acting as the Cleveland Browns GM, McShay selected South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington. Ellington has been moving up draft boards since the NFL Combine, where he ran a 4.45-second 40-yard dash, a 3.95-second pro agility shuttle and had a 39.5-inch vertical."

Ellington's 40 time at one pro day was 4.31
I think it is extremely likely he is drafted rnd 1. He has everything the pros regard as important: he is a studious guy who has proven he can function at a high level within a large system. He's got pro written all over him.

except that hes tiny. Not that tiny guys cant succeed but in a draft loaded with wrs its not exactly a selling point. Hes a slot receiver who isnt explosive at the next level, i still say 3rd round.

Ellington has more off field positive attributes than many top WRs 6-4. There is not a single NFL team that doubts his ability to handle the mental side of football because of his two sport ability and the fact that he graduated in under 4 yrs. The NFL looks for smart guys. He also will continue to become an even better football player. He just gets better and better. 4.31 can negate any size disadvantage. He will be one of the fastest guys in the NFL. Rnd 3 is pretty darn good too

He is short not tiny. He is about 200lbs. Has good power, deceptive speed, and I mention exceptional hands.

It is nice to see players other than Clowney get some attention.

I hope he goes in the 2nd round to my Raiders.

He ran a 4.3? I have doubts.

He taught Sammy how to run routes better

Ellington will be an excellent pro receiver. He's not tiny by any stretch. I dare anyone to walk up to Steve Smith and call him tiny.

I just don't understand how someone can say Ellington isn't explosive. The dude makes plays and is a threat to take it to the house on any given play. Would be a good replacement in Seattle for Golden Tate.

I wish Bruce the best, but 1st round?

Im thinking 3rd or 4th round... As others have stated, his size is what will keep him from being drafted early.

Re: Todd Mcshay thinks Bruce Ellington will go in the 1st round.
 
Crazy!! And he's a two sport athlete where initially football was his second sport. Good decision I'd say. Could you imagine if he concentrated solely on football from the beginning?

True. Ellington may have less locker room fight than Smith though.

Would be awesome to see him go first round. There's really no bust factor with him. He's a phenomenal athlete, works his tail off all the time, coaches love him, and he's a great teammate.

Who's to say he can't be as good as a Wes Welker? He runs great routes, very quick, and never drops passes.

Thanks. Always pegged him as a 4.4 guy.

Ellington is a natural. Hope he ends up on a team that knows how to use a guy like this.
