Overview

Ewing is the beneficiary of a thin fullback crop this year, although there's growing sentiment that the position is being eliminated entirely from offenses in the NFL. A throwback player -- a block first guy who will need to be selected by an offense that intends to use him that way, and as a special teams contributor. Ewing came into Wisconsin as a running back, and was Wisconsin's special teams player of the year as a senior.

Analysis

Strengths

Ewing is a powerful blocker who hits the hole hard and can dip, sit, and uncoil his hips for an explosive block into a linebacker. He had few carries or catches in his career, but was reliable when thrown to. While he can be explosive, he is more of a seek-out, engage and stalemate blocker. He is quick off the snap for his size and it's obvious he understands how to maximize his opportunities. Took a backseat in his senior year due to the rise of QB Russell Wilson. He is an NFL-ready player who has played in professional blocking schemes for years at Wisconsin.

Weaknesses

Ewing is not going to make any electric plays with the ball at the next level. Compared to fullbacks who have been successful of late in the NFL, such as Vonta Leach of the Ravens, he has the ability to block with the same tenacity. A decent athlete but very stiff and straight-line as a runner.
