Plyler on Ellington: "I saw Ellington twice. I think he is special. He has tremendous acceleration. He really can come out of a cut and explode. Despite not being a big back, he is a lot tougher then you think. He is rare because even though he is a break away threat he gets the tough yards in between the tackles."
