Ezekiel Elliott told Adam Schefter what team he thinks he's going to
The other day, Ezekiel Elliott was asked on the “Dan Patrick Show” which teams loved him.
Elliott said that he thought that the Chicago Bears were in love with him. That made sense, considering Bears running backs coach Stan Drayton was Elliott’s position coach at Ohio State.
Patrick then asked Elliott if Dallas was in love with him. To that, Elliott said he didn’t know and that he’d have to ask them if they were.
But during a conversation with ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter at an event on Wednesday night, Elliott apparently told him that’s where he thinks he’ll end up.
“He thinks he’s going to the Dallas Cowboys,” Schefter said on ESPN’s Mike and Mike. “I should say that players rarely know where they’re going. But his belief is that he’s going to Dallas.”

What Dallas thinks, of course, is still a mystery. There’s talk that if Jalen Ramsey is on the board, Dallas would pull the trigger on him. That could only happen if the San Diego Chargers went with Ronnie Stanley or DeForest Buckner, as some suspect they’ll do.
What we do know is that Elliott is the consensus top running back in the draft and he figures to have plenty of suitors. Dallas would certainly be an ideal landing spot for Elliott given their dominant offensive line.
Schefter added that if Elliott doesn’t go to Dallas at No. 4, that he doesn’t see Baltimore or Cleveland taking him and that New York (NYG), Chicago or Miami could be his possible destinations.
Fortunately, months of speculation will turn into reality in a matter of hours.
