Emmitt Smith Shows High Praise for Ezekiel Elliott

They say you can’t draft a running back in the top 5 anymore. They say the Cowboys offensive line is good enough for any back to run behind.

They say Ezekiel Elliott is the most complete running back to come out of college and enter the draft in recent memory, and his services will now be employed to the Dallas Cowboys as they selected Zeke with the fourth overall pick last night.

The Cowboys pick last night should have Cowboys Nation jumping for joy, as Ezekiel Elliott will instantly provide a significant boost to the entire team. Click here to read about just how much of an impact the newest Dallas Cowboy could have. 

By adding the dynamic Elliott at the running back position, the Cowboys organization can have flashbacks to the glory days of the 1990s. Super Bowls XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX all belonged to the Cowboys – thanks to the triplets of QB Troy Aikman, WR Michael Irvin, and RB Emmitt Smith.

With this pick, it’s now time to get Tony Romo and Dez Bryant their Super Bowl. To do so, they need their Emmitt Smith, which very well may be Ezekiel Elliott. Just ask the league’s all time leading rusher himself:

@jfo1229a he’s better

Tyron Smith, La’el Collins, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, and Doug Free, blocking for a back that Emmitt Smith says is better than Emmitt Smith. This is what we get to witness in 2016 and beyond in Dallas.

Yeah, we’re excited –
