Strong Points

Very good athlete who is quick and sudden. Can turn and run and transitions quickly. Tough and competitive, plays bigger than his size. Not afraid to defend the run and is a good tackler. Plays the ball well in the air and has good hands for the interception. Should be able to make an impact on special teams. Can return kicks.

Weak Points

Measured a shade over 5-foot-10 and that could drop him a bit on some teams' boards. Plays fast but might be a little slower than his game speed. Doubt he can get much bigger than 185.

The Way We See It

Elder is a fun player to watch on tape. He is tough and competitive and plays bigger than his size. He has a quick pedal, can turn and run and shows he can transition quickly. Willing run-support player and he can tackle. Can play man or zone in coverage and has good mirror skills as well as top ball skills. Where he gets drafted will be determined by his verified measurables. If he runs slower than 4.50, he will drop on some teams' boards. I see him as a slot corner who should be able to match up well versus the smaller slot receivers in the league.
