RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Ellis was selected by the Raiders in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and he had an impressive rookie season for the Oakland defense. The 24-year old defensive tackle started to see more snaps as the season progressed and he ended his rookie campaign with 21 total tackles. He's currently listed as the starter at left defensive tackle on the Raiders' depth chart in the base 4-3 defense. At 6-foot-2, 335 pounds, Ellis should provide good stability in the middle of the Raiders' defensive front.
A fourth-round pick out of Louisiana Tech, Ellis is a load at 6-1, 334 pounds, and he could end up seeing a fair number of the snaps if defensive coordinator Jason Tarver deploys the 3-4 a bit more this season. That said, Ellis recorded just 2.5 sacks in his four-year collegiate career, so his fantasy upside is limited.
