The Dallas Cowboys have an amazing offensive line, and when the Cowboys were on the clock in the 2016 NFL Draft, many teams feared they would draft Ezekiel Elliott to be their running back.
The Cowboys did just that and selected the best offensive weapon in the NFL Draft. Now the best running back from college will run behind the best offensive line in football and Ezekiel Elliott understands that.
“I think I probably have one of the easiest jobs in America,” the former Ohio State star said, per Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News. “I get to run behind the best O-line in America, run through those huge holes, they make your job easy.”
When DeMarco Murray was given the ball in Dallas he was the leading rusher, so Zeke may have a point.
