Dawson Tanner Elliott (b. Dec. 4, 1992) is a walk-on wide receiver who played two seasons at Butler Community College under head coach Troy Morrell. He enrolled in time for spring practice, but did not play in the spring game.

Elliott totaled 17 receptions for 227 yards and one touchdown as a sophomore, while he had 18 catches for 165 yards as a freshman. He helped the Grizzlies to register a combined 20-3 record during his two years, including the 2012 season in which Butler was the National Junior College Athletic Association runner-up.

Prior to his JUCO stint, Elliott prepped at Goddard High School under head coach Charlie Nally. He earned first-team all-league honors and was an honorable-mention all-state performer after rushing for nearly 1,000 yards.

He also lettered three years in wrestling, his team was three-time state champions and he finished fourth individually in 2010. A wrestling background is indicative of a strong athlete who can block well.

JUCO walk-ons usually redshirt before contributing on special teams, if they're above average. I expect he will, too.
