Cowboys Draft Ezekiel Elliott Fourth Overall: Twitter Reacts
Jerry Jones must have liked what he saw when Ezekiel Elliott walked into the Auditorium Theatre with a crop top prior to the 2016 NFL Draft, because Jones’ Cowboys used their fourth overall pick in the draft to take the Ohio State running back.
According to reports from ESPN, the entire staff was on board with this selection after the Chargers used the third-overall pick to take Buckeyes defensive end Joey Bosa. Even the defensive coaches realized the importance of having a strong running game to help keep their defense off the field.
What did the Twitterverse think of the pick? Find out below:

Last time the Cowboys took a RB in the 1st round was Felix Jones in 2008. Before him, Emmitt Smith in 1990 and Tony Dorsett in 1977. — NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) April 29, 2016
The Cowboys don’t value RBs they said… Darren McFadden is good enough they said… pic.twitter.com/BjWFYttVGL

Cowboys OC Scott Linehan walks out of war room & asks if people are celebrating. Is he? “Oh hell yeah,” Linehan says. “We got a good one.” — David Moore (@DavidMooreDMN) April 29, 2016
To be fair, the Cowboys did get the most can’t-miss RB prospect since Trent Richardson.

Forget value for a sec. Darren McFadden rushed for 1,100 yards behind the Cowboys’ line last year. Without Romo. This could be silly. — The Ringer (@ringer) April 29, 2016
Elliott was a great pick by the Cowboys. He’s going to win NFL Offensive Rookie of theYear behind that line. Rushing title over Peterson, 2!

If there’s any team that would be fine with mediocre RBs, it should be the Cowboys with that line. Should have spread out resources.
