Raiders take DT Justin Ellis

The Raiders added to depth on their defensive interior Saturday by drafting Justin Ellis of Louisiana Tech in the fourth round, No. 107 overall.

Ellis, 6-foot-2, 337 pounds, is stout against the run who looked strong Senior Bowl workouts.

Current defensive tackles on the roster include returnee Pat Sims, free agent-signing Antonio Smith and second-year player Stacy McGee, a promising rookie last season as a sixth-round pick from Oklahoma.

Ellis has worked to manage his weight, having reportedly reached close to 400 pounds at times.

    Apparently some coaches now are willing to give up on a little speed in their corners if they are big. The new style CB.
