Kenrick Ellis   #72 DT

Height: 6-4   Weight: 346   Age: 29

Born: 12/10/1987 Jamaica

College: Hampton

Experience: 5th season

High School: John I. Leonard HS [Lake Worth, FL]









Draft 2011

Pick No.94

Selected By: New York Jets

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 30 (94)

Pick Analysis: Ellis is an intriguing prospect who could develop into a complete starting defensive tackle capable of clogging up the middle, making plays in the backfield off penetration, and collapsing the pocket. Has a pretty rare combination of size and explosiveness. Can be disruptive with his power or quickness. Counters and the screen game can be used to beat him at times. Plays with some fire and has a solid motor. Teams will need to further investigate his dismissal from South Carolina.
