The Dallas Cowboys are “struggling” with the decision as to whether they should use the No. 4 pick on Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott in tonight’s NFL Draft, according to NBC Sports.
Per the report, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants to draft Elliott with the fourth pick even though this year’s draft class is full of talented running backs that can be found in any round, and taking any running back in the Top 10 is something of a reach.
Still, the then-St. Louis Rams drafted Todd Gurley out of Georgia with the 10th overall pick last year and Elliott is arguably on the same level as him, if not even higher. He ran for 3,961 yards and 43 touchdowns at Ohio State and won a national championship in 2014 and paired with a fantastic offensive line, plus a (hopefully) healthy Tony Romo, he could instantly make Dallas’ offense better.
But let’s not forget that Dallas’ defense could also use some help, so drafting someone like Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey would also be highly beneficial.
