It's a 'tankless' job - Cincy Enquirer
Pro Football Weekly's 2008 NFL Draft Guide describes Southern Cal defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis as being "built like a tank with broad shoulders and a powerful base."

Ellis, one of the top two tackles in the draft and a player many mock drafts say will end up with the Bengals with the ninth overall pick, enthusiastically concurs with the "tank" assessment.
