Elliss is an interesting edge prospect that lacks some traits but has a nice overall game. His frame isn't quite as long (6'2") or as large (245 pounds) as some teams like for their edge players. His high motor, strength, and impact in the run game will make him a likely day-two selection. However, Elliss has had a big year with 12 sacks and 16 tackles for loss. He also has a higher PFF pass-rush grade than Jared Verse and Dallas Turner and will be just 21 years old in April.

How he fits: Effort, bull rush, and setting the edge are all three things both Jonah Elliss and Mike Danna can do for the Chiefs. Danna notably was one of the smaller edge players the Chiefs have drafted in recent years. Steve Spagnuolo tends to prefer long and large edge defenders who can move inside as well. Elliss is a nice upside player who doesn't have a secondary pass-rush move. A room with him, Charles Omenihu, George Karlaftis, and Felix Anudike-Uzomah has lots of youth and upside.
