Default Re: Todd Mcshay thinks Bruce Ellington will go in the 1st round.

I think people get confused and think every receiver needs to be over 6" 3' or so. It is true that those types of receivers, those who are tall and fast, are very important to any offense. Those guys are going to stretch the field.

But teams also need those fast recievers going across the middle, running slants, slipping out and running exact routes.

I don't think Ellington will be drafted in the first or second round. There are a lot of X receivers that will go before teams draft slot and flankers.

Bruce will be a very good player in the NFL though.

Being a good basketball player makes you a better WR- you know how to attack the ball in the air and control space and your body while in the air.

Said from day 1 Bruce should have focused on F-Ball, the NBA is extremely difficult to crack into but he has the talent to be a good #2 WR in the NFL.

Don't really know when he'll get drafted, but on a positive note. HE WILL BE DRAFTED. Whoever gets him knows he'll be a starter by fall. Two teams I'd like to see possibly draft him. Carolina or Miami.

Dont know why but he reminds of the WR's that the Steelers try to draft. He will be good pro and can be solid starter.

If Sammy is a first rounder and he's getting lessons on route running from Bruce and with Bruce's speed and hands, he is first round worthy. Watch the Missouri and Wisconsin games and that's all you need to see.

3-cone -7.09 s
Vert - 30 in
Broad - 9 ft 5 in

Wes Welker, who is I think a good comparison, had worse combine numbers and has done ok at the next level...he ain't the biggest or the fastest but he has great hands, is incredibly reliable, and is a great team player. Ellington has all those attributes and is a little faster and more athletic not to mention, he makes spectacular catches look mundane.

But the question is, "Is he first round material?" I cannot remember when a guy like Bruce went in the first round. I would be thrilled for him if he did, but I just do not see that happening. Welker went undrafted. I do not see that happening either.

Welker has been a heck of a lot better than "ok" in the nfl.

Bruce has still got a lot of big plays left in him...he's going to make some noise once whoever takes him figures out what he can do.

Guys a straight out ball player. Just seemed to get better & better the longer he was here. I also think his measurable, other than height, were a positive surprise to the scouts. I hope he gets a good pay day, kid deserves it

Welker went undrafted then proved what he was capable of. Teams just do not scramble after slot guys.

Exactly, like i said short guys can be successful. However, most arent and they get beat up quickly. I just dont think of Bruce as explosive, not big plays but being able to break open field tackles and zoom past defenders. I just dont think his game translates exceptionally well to the pros. 3rd round would be high for a slot receiver.

If one team falls in love with him thats all that matters.

Bruce is quicker and more solid than Welker. I think he's had bunch of concussions in the NFL.

Yep, slot receivers take a lot of punishment in the nfl. Thats why you dont draft them very high they have a short career.
