NFL Draft Rumors: Should Cowboys Consider Ezekiel Elliott After Alfred Morris Signing?

I would still consider Ezekiel Elliott at No. 4, but as of right now the Dallas Cowboys have a solid 1-2 punch at running back with Darren McFadden and now Alfred Morris.

The former sixth-round pick from Florida Atlantic should thrive behind the Cowboys massive offensive line, and will benefit from sharing the workload with McFadden.

The 28-year-old McFadden ran for 1,089 yards, averaging 4.6 yards per carry last season for the Cowboys with 10 productive starts.

Morris can still be the same back that rushed for 1,613 yards in 2012, but the question now has to be asked: will the Dallas Cowboys allow Ezekiel Elliott to drop past them at No. 4?

The former Ohio State star could be a game-changer running behind that offensive line, possibly extending Tony Romo’s career by four or five years.

Elliott isn’t Trent Richardson, and would be a special three-down back from day one, already displaying the ability to pick up blitzing linebackers or catching the ball out of the backfield.

Elliott would also help the defense, allowing Romo to throw the ball fewer than 30 passes per game, which he’s done just once in his entire career.

Pundits will argue that the Cowboys have more pressing defensive needs that could be filled by the likes of Joey Bosa or Jalen Ramsey.

Only time will tell.
