Ezekiel Elliot has been a great running back during his early career. The Dallas Cowboys star seems to be working hard to make himself a part of the NFL’s elite.
Elliott’s worst NFL season was due to the Cowboys’ struggles. He had career lows of 979 yards and 4 yards per carry, along with six touchdowns that were tied with his 2018 output. His 52 receptions for 332 yards and 6.5 yards per reception were both more than his second-season.
The best year for Elliott is his 2016 rookie season, when he gained 1,631 yards and scored 15 touchdowns. He averaged over 108 points per game. The Cowboys are expected to be very successful this fall with Dak Preston returning from injury and Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys’ head coach, putting his back against the wall after the 2020 disaster.
After comparing videos of Elliott running backs doing the same drills months apart, Josh Hicks, Elliott’s personal trainer, told The Athletic that Elliott was faster, more elusive and fluent. “I know that he’s improving.”
Ezekiel Elliott’s workout videos have gone viral in recent months. His fellow teammates are also excited to see his progress.
“Zeke looks amazing. He is in the best physical condition of his life. Prescott stated, “Looking fast.” “Obviously, everyone has seen the videos of Prescott working out alone with his running coach. He is so explosive in his cuts.
In 2016, Elliott was the NFL’s rookie leader in rush yards. He also led again in 2018, 2018. He also had a strong 1,357 yard and 12 touchdown season in 2019. He’s as powerful as any running back in the league when he’s locked down.
This should be frightening for any defense in 2021.
