A native of Wauseon, Ohio, Elliott Mealer relocated to Orlando, FL and trained under Coach Shaw while playing professional football. Elliott played offensive line at the University of Michigan where he appeared in 50 games between 2008 and 2012. While at Michigan, Elliott made his mark as a player that could play all five offensive line positions, although he considers center his home. He had the privilege of snapping the ball to NCAA record holder Denard Robinson (Jacksonville Jaguars) and blocking for running back Fitzgerald Toussaint (Pittsburgh Steelers).
Upon graduating from the University of Michigan in 2012, Elliott signed with the New Orleans Saints as a free agent during the 2013 NFL draft. After being released by the New Orleans Saints, Elliott went on to play for the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes, the AFL’s San Jose Sabercats, and the FXFL’s Omaha Mammoths.
Elliott’s experience in playing all five offensive line positions throughout his career made him unique and versatile. In 2012, he led an offensive line that included first-round draft pick Taylor Lewan (Tennessee Titans), Patrick Omameh (Jacksonville Jaguars), and Super Bowl champion Michael Schofield (Denver Broncos). He’s also had the privilege to learn under the tutelage of Remington Award winners Dan Mozes (West Virgnia/Minnesota Vikings) & David Molk (Michigan/Philadelphia Eagles), as well as NFL Hall of Famer Will Shields (Nebraska/Kansas City Chiefs).
