Former Ohio State Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott is hoping to make an early impact with the Dallas Cowboys, who selected him with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Elliott got his first chance to impress the coaches when the team’s rookie mini-camp opened, but it seems as though he may have been a little too eager to get back out on the field.
According to Cowboys running backs’ coach Gary Brown, Elliott slipped during a zig-zag drill which caused a moment of panic for the staff.

By all accounts, Elliott went on to have an impressive practice.
With two days remaining at the team’s rookie minicamp, all eyes will continue to be on the first-round pick who could is considered one of the early favorites to win the NFL Rookie of the Year award.
