CHICAGO, IL -- And the newest member of the Dallas Cowboys is Ezekiel Elliot. That's right! The Cowboys picked Ohio State running back as their number four pick overall.

"Well Ezekiel Elliot is a great running back and he'll bring something that we haven't seen. I don't know, maybe Ezekiel can be the next Emmitt Smith," said T.J. Weber, a fan of the Cowboys.

"My head was saying Ramsey but my heart was saying Ezekiel Elliot, and I’ll take Ezekiel Elliot all day baby! Go Cowboys," said another fan, Michael Hart.

It looks like the Cowboys' owner and GM, Jerry Jones, was looking to replace the empty space DeMarco Murray left on the field. Who knows, maybe the Cowboys front office is looking to relive the Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith team with Elliot and Tony Romo.
