He is a much tougher runner than I thought for his size. If he continue play well, and put on weight before combine time. I can see him moving up to atleast early 2nd , depends on the other backs that come out.

He really showcased his elite burst tonight. Tremendous athleticism and agility in the open field. Lattimore gets all of the publicity and Bell gave alot of people a wakeup call, but I do think Ellington has a really good chance to move up boards. That offense fits Ellington perfectly.

Andre was an absolute STUD today. Lets just see if he can be consistent throughout the year as well as staying healthy.

He looked good against Auburn, but to say that 229 yds earned him a first round selection is ridiculous. Where is the foundation of your assumption?!?

I've had him as a first round pick for over a year. It has nothing to do with the 229 yards.

I don't know why he's been getting so underrated on draft sites. The kid has the ability to be a very good back. I question his #1 ability in the NFL and I ultimately think he's a 2nd round pick on his best day.

I've shown love for this guy so far, I expect him to go higher than most people said he will.

I agree. I'm not sure if they've never seen him play and just look at his size? The kid is pretty tough.

Its very hard to be a 1st round pick at RB now. You cant just take a guy and label him as one anymore.

RBs around 200 usually don't go till around 50 unless you have All-Universe speed like Chris Johnson, Reggie Bush, C.J. Spiller, etc..... Ray Rice, MJD, LeSean McCoy, similar types of backs with the size and the nasty balance and acceleration. They fall lower than they should.

Similar players like Wilson and Martin went at the end of round 1 this year. The NFL is copycat league, im sure there will be a few RBs to get selected in late round 1.

Last year's class was pretty weak overall. And Martin was like 220.

I agree about RBs still going 1st round. I think people have lost their minds with the devaluation of the position. But I still think it's going to be big backs like usual.
