Selection: Dallas Cowboys select Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott

Analysis: Elliott is one of the best overall players in this draft. He's a complete back who can catch the ball out of the backfield and block as well as carry the football. 

A three-year contributor and two-year starter for the Buckeyes, Elliott rushed for more than 3,600 yards and scored 41 touchdowns the past two seasons. .

Dallas has a couple of other options in the backfield, but we feel confident Elliott will start from day one.
