TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have added a second running back in the draft, selecting Clemson’s Andre Ellington in the sixth round.
Arizona used its fifth-round pick on Stanford’s Stepfan Taylor and followed up by getting Ellington with the 187th overall pick.
The 5-foot-9, 199-pound Ellington was first-team All-ACC after finishing with 1,081 yards rushing, 232 more receiving and nine total touchdowns.
Though undersized, he has good quickness and speed, and has shown an ability to run inside.
