Corey Ellington Scouting Report
Corey Ellington is a Sports Illustrated All American candidate. Extremely able athlete who was used all over the field on defense and at receiver. Ellington's ability as a receiver and lengthy frame translate well to defensive ball hawk skills where he projects as a safety. Excellent vision and concentration. Was given a lot of room to play over the top at safety where he could run downhill to disrupt passes. Great balance and footwork on his backpedal, moves fluidly while changing direction. As shown in the video below at the 04:43 mark, Ellington perfectly reads the quarterback on the slant route before a pick that nearly leads to a score. (DT Yates)
