Unfortunately I couldn't find a working scouting report on him from Scott. This is from nfl.com's prospect profiles.

Ellis Hobbs
Position: Cornerback
College: Iowa State
Height: 5-9
Weight: 188
Hometown: DeSoto, Texas


OVERVIEW

A smart, instinctive player, Ellis Hobbs has been a mainstay in the Cyclone secondary the last three years, doing a very good job of calling assignments. A National Honor Society member, Hobbs was originally recruited as a running back, but shifted to the defensive side of the ball when he reported to fall camp as a true freshman.

Hobbs was All-Dallas Metroplex, Offensive MVP for Texas Class 5A District VII, and was named to the Texas Sportswriters' Association Class 5A honorable-mention team as a senior at DeSoto (Texas) High. He ran for 1,701 yards on 233 carries with 29 touchdowns at the same school that produced Texas Tech All-American Byron Hanspard. He also caught 18 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns. The team captain as a junior and senior, Hobbs battled injuries his freshman and sophomore seasons, then backed up former Oklahoma State running back Tatum Bell (Denver) as a junior. He also lettered in track, competing in the 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays and the long jump.

In 2001, Hobbs appeared in 11 games as a reserve cornerback, posting 16 tackles (11 solo) with an interception, and gained 91 yards on six kickoff returns. In 2002, he began a string of 38 consecutive starts, producing 51 tackles (40 solo) with two interceptions and 12 pass deflections as a sophomore.

He earned game MVP honors three times in 2003, as Hobbs collected 71 tackles (51 solo) with an interception, nine pass breakups, a 53-yard return on a fumble recovery and 111 yards on six kickoff returns. The three-time ISU Scholar-Athlete was also named to the All-Big 12 Conference first team as a senior. He registered 71 tackles (53 solo), a sack, eight pass deflections and five interceptions. He also averaged 24 yards on 12 kickoff returns.

Hobbs closed out his career with 209 tackles (155 solo), two sacks for minus-14 yards, 3 stops for losses of 20 yards, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and 29 pass deflections. He gained 121 yards and a touchdown on nine interceptions and 490 yards on 24 kickoff returns (20.4 avg.).

ANALYSIS

Positives: Has a tight waist and hips and minimal body fat (5.7 percent) Aggressive athlete who makes plays against the run and pass and has also proven to be a very effective gunner on the punt coverage unit Can also handle kickoff return duties in an emergency Coachable, committed player who sometimes overworks in the weight room but shows good dedication Has a good nose for the ball and is especially active in run support Plays the ball aggressively Has the leaping ability to play bigger than his size indicates and will not hesitate to sacrifice his body and go vertical to make the play Solid tackler who will break down, face up, wrap and secure, showing aggression making the hit Better in press coverage than playing off the receiver, as he uses his hands effectively to reroute his opponent Has a good shuffle/slide technique in his backpedal and shows the range to cover ground in plays in front of him Takes on blocks with determination and is very active with his hands in attempts to disengage Made very good improvements with his hands in 2004, extending away from the frame to snatch and pluck the ball For a player with such marginal size, his frame displays impressive strength Can plant and accelerate quickly out of his breaks Has very good field instincts and intelligence and will not have problems dealing with the mental aspect of the game Shows very good leadership ability and will not hesitate getting on teammates when needed.

Negatives: Has marginal size (5-foot-9) and a lean, yet compact build Does not do a good job of playing off the receiver, as he tends to lose a step because of hip stiffness and does not have that second gear needed to recover Eyes the backfield too much and this causes him to lose a feel for the receiver's location, resulting in getting beaten in man coverage Shows good aggression as a run stuffer, but a lack of size will see the bigger runners bounce off his tackles Needs backpedal technique refinement, as he shows some wasted motion in his turn (tight hips) and this will result in him losing position on the receiver If the receiver shows a good burst in the go route, Hobbs does not have the recovery burst to compensate.

INJURY REPORT

2001: Suffered a left knee partial meniscus tear Nov. 1, but did not miss any games.

AGILITY

4.46 in the 40-yard dash 380-pound bench press 505-pound squat 36-inch vertical jump 10-foot-3 broad jump 30-inch arm length 9-inch hands Right-handed Wears contacts.

HIGH SCHOOL

Attended DeSoto (Texas) High, playing football for coach Ben Dial Named to the All-Dallas Metroplex Area first-team Offensive MVP for Texas Class 5A District 7 and selected to the Texas Sportswriters' Association Class 5A honorable mention team Ran for 1,701 yards on 233 carries with 29 touchdowns at the same school that produced Texas Tech All-American Byron Hanspard Also caught 18 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns Team captain as a junior and senior Battled injuries his freshman and sophomore seasons and then backed up former Oklahoma State running back Tatum Bell as a junior Participated in track, competing in the 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays and the long jump Member of the National Honor Society.
