He transferred to Missouri from Texas after his freshman season.
Elliott played in only 26 games in 3 years at Missouri, but flashed plenty of ability in that short time.
Elliott is known as an explosive pass rusher and strong in the run game.

In the past 2 years, Elliott had 5.5 sacks, but his impact was felt beyond his numbers.
According to PFF, Elliott forced 34 pressures on only 290 pass-rushing snaps.

This was the best pass rush win rate amongst all defensive tackles in the class.
“Skilled hand-fighter with explosive upper body strength to stack, read and react in an odd or even front,” writes NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein. “Elliott has experience in a variety of alignments, allowing teams to move him up and down the line depending on matchups.”
