Ezekiel Elliott is in the ideal situation and he knows it.
The Dallas Cowboys' rookie running back is poised for a breakout campaign after being drafted No.4 overall in this year's draft. He is afforded the opportunity to run behind the NFL's best offensive line in his very first season, something he is not taking for granted.
"I think I probably have one of the easiest jobs in America," Elliott said, according to Jon Machota of The Dallas News. "I get to run behind the best O-line in America."
'Zeke' is currently recovering from a hamstring strain suffered during practice, but all reports indicate he will be ready for the start of the regular season. He is likely to be thrust into a featured role right off the bat, and is prepared to show the skill-set that helped him rack up an impressive 3,699 rushing yards and 41 touchdowns over two seasons at Ohio State.
