Where will Elliott land in NFL Draft?
The 2016 NFL Draft is set to take place later this week and one intriguing selection is Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott. Where will the stud back go?
Elliott is largely considered to be the top running back in this draft. The 5-11, 225-pound back from Ohio State rushed for 1,821 yards and 23 touchdowns last year while catching 27 passes for 206 yards. He also rushed for 1,878 yards and 18 touchdowns during the 2014 season.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the over/under for Elliott’s draft position this weekend has been set at 8.5. The over has a money line of -185, while the under is listed at +140.
There has been some speculation on where Elliott might land. One rumored spot is No. 4 to Dallas. Todd McShay has Elliott going fourth to the Cowboys in his latest mock draft, as does Peter King. Dallas is in need of a young, play-making RB after losing DeMarco Murray after the 2014 season. Some NFL.com mock drafts have Elliott going eighth to the Cleveland Browns while other speculation has the Dolphins at No. 13 taking Elliott if he is still available at that point.
