“…What he lacks in size, Elder makes up with his athleticism, toughness and cover skills. ” –Dane Brugler
A compact, smallish defensive back that projects as a slot/nickle corner in the NFL. Uses every ounce of his size correctly, with great tackling technique and the swiftness to avoid blockers in space. Anticipates plays very quickly, and is seemingly always able to get to the receiver because of his awareness. Very tough.
