Ezekiel Elliott Will Be Visiting The Nova Care Center SoonBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Running Backs Friday, April 8th, 2016
Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott was being interviewed on the NFL Network yesterday and he let the audience know that he’s going to be visiting the Nova Care Complex in the near future.
“I’m lucky to be in this situation, and I’ll be happy with whoever drafts me,” Elliott said.
The Eagles could use a running back. Right now they have Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner to carry the football. Mathews is injury-prone. Sproles isn’t a full-time player, plus he’s getting near the end of he road. Barner hasn’t proven he’s a NFL running back.
I think Elliott is a game changer, who can make the difference as a ball carrier and as a receiver, but I still wouldn’t have a problem with the Eagles drafting Michigan State’s offensive tackle Jack Conklin. I would love to see they physical Conklin and big bruiser guard Brandon Brooks on the right side of the Birds offensive line. They would be able to pound teams with a physical running game.
Still I’m very impressed with Elliott. He can make the short inside run and he can take it the distance with his big time speed.
He can shift out of the backfield and beat linebackers and safeties as a receiver. Elliott catches the football in tight areas. The Buckeye running back is also a very good run and pass blocker.
