Ezekiel Elliott

School: Ohio State
Position: RB
Positive: Two-year starter named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year after totaling 1821 yards on the ground with 23 TDs and adding another 27 receptions for 206 yards. Explosive ball carrier with outstanding vision and a well-rounded game. Displays terrific running instincts and overall awareness. Will pick and choose his spots, weaves through the defense and consistently finds the running lanes. Patiently waits for blocks develop, effectively follows them everywhere on the field and a multi-cut ball carrier that strings several moves together over the course of a carry. Runs with good lean, keeps his feet moving forward and tough to bring down. Shows a burst through the hole. Has an aggressive style, runs over defenders and picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Terrific receiver out of the backfield, extending and snatching the ball from the air. Sees the blitz and attacks blocking assignments.
Negative: Not a truly creative ball carrier that makes defenders miss. More of a one speed skill player and struggles beating defenders around the perimeter or running to daylight.
Analysis: Elliott is a terrific ball carrier as well as up legitimate pass catching threat out of the backfield. He possesses the skill necessary to line up as a feature back in the NFL and will be the only running back selected in the first round of the draft.
