There is no question that Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott is the best in the 2016 NFL Draft at his position. Many expect him to go in the top ten, but he could go as high as No. 4 to the Dallas Cowboys, which is probably why three teams are bringing him in for a visit in the coming weeks.
Elliott joined NFL Network’s “Total Access” and discussed having a meeting with three teams picking in the first 15. The Philadelphia Eagles (8), Chicago Bears (11), and Miami Dolphins (13) are all looking to try and snag him in the first round and have set up late pre-draft visits with Elliott.
“I’m lucky to be in this situation, and I’ll be happy with whoever drafts me,” Elliott said.
Many believe that the Eagles, who swapped first-round picks with the Dolphins after sending them linebacker Kiko Alonzo and cornerback Byron Maxwell, asked for the top-ten pick just so they could take Elliott.
However, it looks like Ezekiel Elliott would be excited to play with another pair of NFC East rivals. He stated that he would love to play with New York Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
No matter what team picks him up, Elliott is certainly going to be in line to be one of the best rookie players in the NFL this season.
