Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

Philadelphia needed help all over the field at the end of the 2015 season. So after a busy offseason that started with the firing of Chip Kelly and continues with Jim Schwartz taking the Bills defense to Philadelphia, it has made RB and QB two of the biggest needs on the team. With both top 10 caliber QBs off the board Elliot becomes the logical answer and gives the Eagles a workhorse RB for the future. He has the size, strength and vision needed to play early in the NFL. When you read the comment "Poor man's Adrian Peterson" attached to an NFL ready RB, the pick becomes even easier.
