Rhett Ellison   #85 RB

Height: 6-5   Weight: 250   Age: 29

Born: 10/3/1988 Foster City , CA

College: USC

Experience: 7th season

High School: St. Francis HS [Mountain View, CA]









Draft 2012

Pick No.128

Selected By: Minnesota Vikings

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 33 (128)

Pick Analysis: Ellison is a hybrid fullback/tight end who could play either role in the NFL. He is the beneficiary of a light tight end class in 2012, projecting to be one of the first off the board. A bruiser with a punishing frame, Ellison is a reliable blocker, both in-line and out of the backfield. He displays the same consistency in his pass-catching skills, both out of backfield and working upfield. Ellison likely will be selected in the middle rounds of the draft by a team looking for a physical player who can bring a workman-like attitude to the facility.
