Ohio State star RB Ezekiel Elliott wants to be drafted by Cowboys

BY foxsports • February 5, 2016

The Dallas Cowboys have arguably the best offensive line in the NFL. 

But after DeMarco Murray, who was the league's leading rusher in 2014, left for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cowboys struggled with several running backs during a disastrous 2015 season. 

Ezekiel Elliott wants a chance to show what he can do in Dallas. 

The former Ohio State star said on the NFL Network during Super Bowl 50 festivities where he wants to go in the draft. 

"The Dallas Cowboys," Elliott said on "NFL Now". "I want to go play behind that great offensive line they have down in Dallas."

Elliott finished his Buckeye career with 3,961 yards rushing and 43 touchdowns. He was named the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship Game MVP where he rushed for 246 yards and four touchdowns in Ohio State's upset win over Oregon.
