When you draft a running back early in the NFL, you have to make sure he can do multiple things. Many running backs can run for 100’s of yards, many score touchdowns, but how many can catch out the backfield and block?
Ezekiel Elliott is by far the best back in the 2016 NFL Draft, and this stat from Pro Football Focus, makes you love him even more. Out of 102 pass blocking snaps, Elliott only allowed 1 QB pressure. I think the Dolphins would love to have an extra blocker like Elliot, what do you think?
