Throwback Video: A Freshman Ezekiel Elliott Levels A Player On Special Teams

Ezekiel Elliott has become one of the NFL's biggest stars as a rookie.

Before Ezekiel Elliott became a star running back for Ohio State, he was a backup and special teams player as a freshman.

That season, he made perhaps one of the most-impressive plays of his Buckeyes' career.

Remember this?

Elliott has taken his blocking skills into the NFL, becoming one of the league's best pass blockers at the running back position.

He's now the favorite for the NFL's offensive rookie of the year award, and a contender for MVP.
