So far in training camp, we have had a few standout players. Some were to be expected, like Stephen Hill, but some are not as well known to Jets fans. One is a defensive back that we are going to talk about this morning. He has been all over the field and turning heads while doing it. He is trying to earn a spot in a crowded area. Today we profile Ellis Lankster.
The twenty five year old back was not a standout player growing up. He actually spent two years in junior college at Jones County Junior College, before transferring to West Virginia University for his junior and senior seasons.
He earned second team All-Big East in 2008, and was a participant in the Senior Bowl following the 2009 season.
Ellis still went unnoticed in the NFL draft, as he was chosen in the 7th round of the 2009 draft by the Buffalo Bills.
