He’s a capable runner, receiver and blocker, and while that didn’t always show up on the stat sheet, Casey’s pure ability will make him one of the most sought-after free agents on the market this year.
4. Rhett Ellison, Minnesota Vikings The Vikings used Ellison as a fullback and a tight end this season—a testament to his versatility and athleticism. As a run-blocker from the backfield and the edge, Ellison established himself as a valuable piece of the Minnesota offense.

That scheme requires versatility from the fullback position as a runner, receiver and blocker, and Young can do all three. He’s an up-and-comer at the position.
