NFL Draft 2016: Dallas Cowboys pick Ezekiel Elliott at No. 4


The Dallas Cowboys’ running game is officially going to be dangerous in 2016, as Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott was selected with the No. 4 overall pick.

There had been constant speculation that Dallas would select either Elliott or Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey. In turns out that owner Jerry Jones has opted to utilize his team’s iron-strong offensive line and select a running back that should excel in coach Jason Garrett’s offense-oriented system.

And Elliott is a great pick for the Cowboys. He ran for 3,961 yards and 43 touchdowns in three years in Columbus, and also caught 58 passes for 449 yards and was instrumental in leading the Buckeyes to the 2014 national championship as a No. 4 seed, pulling off a key run against a dangerous Alabama defense.

Simply put, Cowboys fans have to be loving this pick because with his skill set, Elliott may be in line for a Hall of Fame career now that he’s a Cowboy.
