Gamecocks in the NFL Draft: Bruce Ellington to visit Cardinals, Patriots, Rams


Bruce Ellington has a busy week ahead of him. The former South Carolina Gamecocks wide receiver looks to woo teams a little over three and a half weeks before the NFL Draft as he has several visits in store.

Ellington’s visit to Arizona is of note because his cousin, Andre, is a running back for the squad who will be entering his second season with the team after being selected in the sixth round out of Clemson. He had 118 carries for 652 yards and three touchdowns last season, with his longest run an 80-yarder.

The Patriots could use a boost at wideout to go along with what they already have in place. Of course, playing with Tom Brady can make any wide receiver look halfway decent, but Ellington would be an attractive addition to the team, especially given Danny Amendola’s recent injury history.
