Ezekiel Elliott is raising awareness for domestic violence at NFL combine

Ohio State Buckeyes star running back Ezekiel Elliott is hoping to blow scouts in Indianapolis away at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine. However, he will also be sending a message much bigger than football.

Elliott took to Twitter on Friday prior to on-field workouts for the group of running backs to announce he will be raising awareness for domestic violence during the combine.

Elliott will be working out in custom cleats which will later be auctioned for charity.

It’s a very classy gesture from Ezekiel Elliott and one that shows an impressive sense of maturity.

Considering all of the domestic violence issues the league has faced in recent years, it’s nice to see someone doing something positive regarding the issue.
