Re: Team-by-team look at who would/could/should be tagged

I must admit, as ridiculous as it sounds I'm intrigued withthe Ellis-to-DE comment.

I can sort of see him playing that strongside DE which does require a DE/DT hybrid since they're taking on 2 gaps.

Or maybe its the off-season and I'm bored and desperate for a football discussion?

Thoughts on the move?

Wouldn't work.

Ellis has shown that he can't take on double teams at the LOS successfully and constantly, and in fact this past season he was free from double teams as Bunkley and Johnson were given doubles beside him (maybe Hicks as well, but I remember occasions with the other two for certain). Only, even on those occasions Ellis was negated quite easily by the opposition's guards - hard to think he'd fair any better against a guard and a tackle or an OT and a TE.

His strength isn't enough for guards and his athleticism isn't enough for tackles, and he doesn't have particularly long arms which further complicates taking on double teams... I just can't see him fitting in.

I would be flabbergasted if the Saints announced the re-signing of Ellis this offseason - and definitely not with positive undertones.
