Ezekiel Elliott is the top-rated running back in the 2016 NFL Draft and there is some chatter that he could go as high as No. 4 overall to the Dallas Cowboys. But if Elliott stays on the board, it doesn’t look like he believes he will be available past the No. 10 pick.
While appearing on “The Dan Patrick Show,” Elliott was asked which NFL team likes him the most.
When Elliott gave his answer, it was none other than the Chicago Bears, who host the NFL Draft for a second straight year beginning on Thursday night.

The Bears currently hold the No. 11 pick in the draft, so there is a chance Elliott could still be on the board if Dallas passes up on him. Of course, if the Bears really are fond of Elliott, they could decide to make a trade up.
And if the Ohio State star does end up heading to the Windy City for the start of his NFL career, he will waste no time familiarizing himself with the fans.
