2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Rhett Ellison, TE, USC
A true locker room guy and hard worker in the weight room. Ellison played tight end in college and will likely be used on occasion as a No. 2 TE, he's a better fit as a fullback and occasional H-back. Ellison only had one career carry but has decent hands as a receiver.
Minnesota probably reached a bit here in a player that amounts to a special teams guy. He's not a big-play threat and will need some practice on the small fundamentals of being a fullback. When he does get his hands on someone, he plays to the whistle with a chip on his shoulder.
The Vikings special teams struggled at times last year and Ellison is someone who immediately will have an impact in that regard only.
