Draft 2017

Pick No.152

Selected By: Carolina Panthers

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 8 (152)

Pick Analysis: Elder is one of many players that changed positions when they entered college -- and the move has paid off. He was a top 30 running back prospect nationally, however, coming out of Nashville as he was named Mr. Football Running Back of the Year for Tennessee as a junior and senior (2,618 rush yards, 39 TD). Given his size (5-foot-10, 180) and tenacious attitude, Miami coaches moved Elder to cornerback for his true freshman season in 2013 (seven tackles, missed two games with injury). He played often as a reserve, plus one start, in 2014 (34 tackles, three for loss, four breakups) before becoming a key member of the secondary as a junior (seven starts, 41 tackles, four for loss, two sacks, two INT, 11 pass breakups). Elder also returned both a kickoff and punt return in 2015. ACC coaches named him first-team all-conference for his play as a senior, as he made 76 tackles, 4.5 for loss, intercepting one pass and breaking up 12 others.
