Overview

Elmore has great intangible qualities and should provide some value with his pass rushing ability and hustle. However, he does not possess enough strength in the running game or elite athleticism to be considered a future starter. Can get off the ball, occasionally turn the corner, and close on the quarterback but won't set up his man, counter, or use the bull rush. Has a motor that doesn't stop and will make some plays chasing ball carriers down the line but is a liability when run at and can be a tick late to find the football. Elmore carries a late-round grade.

Analysis

Strengths

Elmore has adequate size and speed. Possesses good get off. Enough athleticism to get the edge at times. Can close on the quarterback when beating his man. Will chase down some running plays from the backside. Has outstanding intangibles. Great work-ethic. Exhibits a good motor.

Weaknesses

Lacks elite explosion to consistently pose a threat as a speed rusher. Does not show the ability to bull rush to the passer. Needs to widen his array of moves. Struggles to anchor at the point of attack and must watch his pad level. Can be fooled by misdirection. Needs to find the football faster.
