Ezekiel Elliott is doing whatever he can not to get himself into any trouble before the NFL draft.

Part of that includes avoiding certain topics of discussion. When he joined the ESPN show “Highly Questionable,” the Ohio State running back addressed his topics not to address.

The first, of course, was calling out the coaches after the Michigan State loss.

Elliott said he also wasn’t allowed to talk about the Heisman Trophy, which he wasn’t a nominee for. Perhaps that’s why he was advised to dodge it altogether.

It’s not a surprise to see someone come up with topics to avoid before the biggest job interview of their life. The Highly Questionable crew just happened to stumble on to the fact that Elliott had the piece of paper in front of him.

But when you’re talking about the possibility of millions of dollars, it’s not a bad thing to be overly cautious.
