Actually, Ellis is more versatile than Dorsey. Dorsey is a 3-tech guy. He cannot play the nose position. In addition, he'll say that he can play in a 3-4 but he would be very limited there. He'll give you heart and passionate play but he would not be as effective in that type of defense. Ellis, on other hand, can play the 3-technique and as a one-gap NT.I would go with Dorsey mainly because of his versatility.
That's actually not correct. Ellis is bigger and is stronger. Heck, Ellis benched 225 34 times and called it a disappointment. Ellis weighs in at 306 to Dorsey's 297.i would go with dorsey because he is bigger and stronger and they have pretty much the same burst off the line.
Where do you get that from? Both are disruptive, pass-rushing 3-techs. There is very little difference between the two.I think they are different breeds so it's difficult to compare. Ellis fits more into the 2-gap technique more than Dorsey, who is seen as a 3-tech.
