Pees will take a different approach with Elliott and Pollard.
“When they get handed the ball, every player on that defense is at the point of the attack,” Pees said. “I’ve the seen the ball that’s supposed to be run in the A-gap, and (Elliott) jumps that thing all the way outside, and he’s got a big gain.”
Elliott’s and Pollard’s running styles are similar.
“They can run downhill,” Pees said. “They’ve got a low center of gravity. The other thing is that when you tackle them, you better bring everybody to the party because they’ll spin.
“I’ve seen one hand on the ground, and he comes up. Everybody thinks he’s down, but he’s not down. Both of those guys. I think they are really complimentary to each other. I just think that everybody is at the point of attack when they get the ball.”
