RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chris Ellis.
Ellis is likely to be transitioned to outside linebacker in Buffalo's new defensive scheme. That certainly improves his prospects to be a contributor, but just because he's making a position switch doesn't mean the disappointing-to-date Ellis will become an IDP guy. He only has eight tackles in two NFL seasons, and is still looking for his first sack. We'll see if the new coaching staff can get Ellis straightened out, but for now there's no need to act in your next draft.
Ellis only played in seven games in a rookie season that ended with him on injured reserve with an ankle injury, and some are already calling him a bust. He was supposed to be a top depth guy for the defensive end spot but was slow to develop, finishing with only three tackles and no sacks before the injury. Given the slow start, he'll probably need a full season of getting his feet wet before we have a better hope of him becoming an NFL regular. And entering 2009, he's probably sixth in the defensive end rotation behind Aaron Schobel, Chris Kelsay, Ryan Denney, Copeland Bryan and rookie Aaron Maybin.
