    What’s To Be Learned From Past Top-Ten RBs?

    As soon as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the Dallas Cowboys' intentions to draft Ohio State Buckeyes Running Back Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick, the projections for his rookie season numbers began. Fans, analysts, and writers alike all began predicting incredible feats for Zeke's rookie year. We heard it all from 2,000 yards to being a lock for Rookie of the Year. It was almost impossible to temper our excitement and expectations. But, without reeling in our expectations a bit is it possible we are setting Zeke up for failure before he even takes a snap as a Cowboy?

    Cowboys Running Back Carousel Stops At Ezekiel Elliott

    The greatest running back in the history of the National Football League, Emmitt Smith, played for the Dallas Cowboys. A fellow Pro Football Hall of Fame running back, Tony Dorsett, preceded Emmitt as the ball carrier for America's Team. This is a team with a rich history when it comes to running backs. For a long time all Dallas Cowboys fans have been able to hang their hat on regarding the running back position - is history. In the Tony Romo era, which current Cowboys fans know very well, we've had the likes of Julius Jones, Marion Barber III, Tashard Choice, Phillip Tanner, Felix Jones, and DeMarco Murray tote the rock.

    How Ezekiel Elliott Improves All Phases Of The Game

    As this past week moved along and we inched closer to the start of the NFL Draft, the fight for Ezekiel Elliott seemed like a lost one. All signs seemed to point to Jalen Ramsey, that is, unless the Chargers snatched him first. Instead the Cowboys decided to sort of shock the world with their selection of Elliott at #4 overall with Ramsey still available. It is easy to get excited about the selection of Zeke. Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, and now Zeke Elliott with that incredible Offensive Line in front of them gives this offense a chance to win each and every week.

    Ezekiel Elliott Ready to Run: “I’m Coming to Dallas to Win a Super Bowl”

    Has it settled in yet? The Dallas Cowboys added Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick tonight in the NFL Draft! Fans can brace for a dynamic offense with Zeke in the backfield, along with lofty expectations to follow. Elliott, who bursts with confidence in everything he does, appeared ready for these expectations when he came off the stage in Chicago to join Cowboys' great Deion Sanders on NFL Network. In this post-draft interview, Elliott declared:

    We did it. #TeamZeke won. Remember all of the feels when Murray posted that 1800 yard season. Get ready for that. And more.

    The Dallas Cowboys Select Ezekiel Elliott at #4

    This past Christmas, I wrote about how the Dallas Cowboys can further build around their star-studded offensive line to win games.  Tonight, in an event that many fans refer to as "Football Christmas", the Cowboys gave us this answer - drafting running back Ezekiel Elliott out of Ohio State University with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Elliott is one of the most dynamic running back prospects we have seen come out of college over the past few seasons, thriving in a zone-running scheme with the Buckeyes. We all know the narrative far too well by now. DeMarco Murray led the league in rushing in 2014 behind this offensive line.

    [VIDEO] Ezekiel Elliott Dominates in Zone Blocking Scheme

    The Dallas Cowboys offensive line is very good. Ezekiel Elliott, the highly coveted running back prospect out of Ohio State, is very good. Combine these two things together scientifically, and it doesn't take a notebook full of equations to figure out that the Cowboys drafting Zeke could lead to a dominant ground game in 2016. In the video above, ESPN's Sport Science breaks down Elliott in his college zone-blocking scheme by the numbers to show how dominant he was. The amazing metrics only further prove what scouts have been saying about the prospect for a long time now, in that he hits the hole quickly and will always be a threat to take the ball to the end zone.
