Rumor Mill: Dallas Cowboys Coaches Like Ezekiel Elliott

When you’re approximately a week away from the NFL Draft… any and every thought that is said out loud, mentioned to a friend, or floated out as a hypothetical is worth a discussion. The latest comes to us from the wonderful world of Twitter.

Back channel piece of info I heard on Cowboys draft, “coaches” like Zeke (including Marinelli) and scouts/front office like Bosa or Ramsey

Jeff Skin Wade is a media personality that covers Dallas sports. He knows what he’s talking about so this caught the attention of Cowboys Nation.

Ezekiel Elliott is the best running back in this draft. That’s about as set in stone that gravity is 9.81 meters per second squared.

Assuming the Cowboys Coaches do like Zeke then they are going to be throwing it down like gravity when the toe meets the ball this fall. One doesn’t really have to assume anything, though. Zeke is incredible and anybody would like him, but the Cowboys have certainly done their homework on the Buckeyes.

Only at Ohio State….#DevelopedHere

That tweet is obviously from March 25th. It was that day that the Cowboys Coaches flew to Columbus to work out the best that The Ohio State had to offer this Draft season.

The best of that bunch might very well be Ezekiel Elliott. A few weeks ago my fellow Staff Writer Brian Martin took the opportunity to beat the drum on a case for the Cowboys drafting Zeke.

Can the Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line make any running back great? Sure. Darren McFadden can answer that question for us, and for that matter so can DeMarco Murray. Imagine though, this elite Offensive Line paired with one of the best Running Backs to enter the Draft in quite some time. That’s one spicy situation!

Perhaps that’s just the spice that Jason Garrett and his staff are interested in. While the Front Office might be craving something different on their palate to the tune of Joey Bosa or Jalen Ramsey, the prospect of Zeke in Dallas is enough to get us all excited.

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll.

@RJOchoa if you wanna shout!
