Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has a chance to become the first rookie to lead the NFL in rushing since Eric Dickerson did it with the Los Angeles Rams in 1983. The Cowboys are expected to continue feeding Elliott the rock, unfazed by his workload through the first 11 games of his pro career.

Elliott, who was selected by the Cowboys in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft, has paired with fellow rookie Dak Prescott to revitalize a Dallas franchise that appears destined for a deep playoff run.

The annual Draftnik pilgrimage to Mobile, AL for the Reese’s Senior Bowl is one of the highlights of the NFL draft calendar.  With the list of accepted invites starting to roll in, it’s fun watching the senior prospects finish their college careers on a high note.

One such player is Syracuse WR Amba Etta-Tawo, who went wild against Pitt in what was a wild all-around game.  Syracuse lost 76-61, but it wasn’t without a fight from their senior pass-catcher.  Etta-Tawo caught 13 balls for 178 yards and five touchdowns, a stat line that certainly has the NFL taking notice.

With a big week of Senior Bowl practices, Etta-Tawo could throw his name into late-second day consideration.

Written by Jeff Risdon on November 24, 2016

Rivalry Week. So many great games spread out over the long weekend. Try not to eat too much while you indulge in the cornucopia of draft prospects on display.

This week is divided into Friday and Saturday in the interest of space and time.

All times Eastern…

Washington at Washington State, 3:30 PM on FOX

The Apple Cup being at a palatable hour for those of us in the Eastern Time Zone and the only real action going on makes this a great showcase for draft evaluation.

My focus here is Washington State QB Luke Falk against a loaded Huskies secondary that features top 125 prospects Sidney Jones and Kevin King at corner and Budda Baker at safety. Falk had some issues last week against a talented Colorado secondary, notably when under pressure.

I love Falk’s touch and easily natural arm strength; he can deliver a catchable ball (read more…)


Dak Prescott is making scouts re-evaluate their evaluation process

Dak Prescott

Raise your hand if you didn’t think Dak Prescott would be a legitimate starting quarterback in the NFL.

(In case you were wondering, my hand is raised.)

I watched the tape. I saw him up close and personal at the Senior Bowl.  There was no evidence to suggest he’d take the NFL by storm.

But after 10 weeks and an 9-1 record, Prescott has the Cowboys looking like the favorites to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. And no, he’s not simply a game manager. He’s winning games with his arm.

Prescott has thrown for 2,640 yards and 17 touchdowns compared to only two interceptions. Hardly the numbers anyone would have expected from a player who struggled with his accuracy at Mississippi State.

After watching his tape for the 2016 NFL draft, I came away thinking Prescott would fight for a job as an NFL backup, but that’s about (read more…)
