Strong Points

Has not missed a PAT in his career (202-of-202). Kicks have a quick rise.

Weak Points

Two-and-a-half step kicker. Kickoffs aren't where they need to be (63.7-yard average for career). Lacks a great leg. Inconsistent with FG accuracy, as he has made just 81.4 percent the past two years.

The Way We See It

Not a sure shot to make it, as he has inconsistent accuracy and may not have an NFL leg. Kickoffs lack the range special-teams coaches want, and 77.9 career percent on field goals is a low number for an NFL kicker. Elliott has converted field goals from 50 yards or longer in each of his four seasons at Memphis, and hitting from 54 and 56 yards definitely caught the eyes of some scouts. Elliott should also benefit from his week in Mobile at the Senior Bowl; all 32 teams know who he is. Will get in a camp, then it's up to him.
