    Sorry guys I had to.
    Edit title should have been "According to"


    Pick 1 Los Angeles Rams
    Original No. 1 pick: Jared Goff

    Dak Prescott
    QB, Mississippi State

    Prescott was amazing as a rookie and he's reached at least 3,300 passing yards and 28 total touchdowns in every full season he's played. And he was absolutely crushing it last year before his injury. The guy's good. You almost worry that he was so good as a rookie that he would have saved Jeff Fisher's job, resulting in the Rams never hiring Sean McVay. Maybe Goff was the right pick here after all! I'm kidding. But I would like to think about that for a future podcast or something.

    Pick 4 Dallas Cowboys
    Original No. 4 pick: Ezekiel Elliott

    Ezekiel Elliott
    RB, Ohio State

    The Cowboys selected Zeke here in real life. And I would say that it was a smart pick. Even though the "running backs don't matter" crowd still hates it to this day. But Elliott has been good for the Cowboys. The guy did lead the league in rushing twice, rolling up 1,631 yards and 16 total touchdowns as a rookie. It hasn't been Zeke's fault. I would still make that call today. Like, do you think the Cowboys were a Jalen Ramsey away from winning a Super Bowl?

    I would take Ramsey and Hill easily over Zeke.

    I think Ramsey or Chris Jones should go over Zeke. DTs like Chris Jones are so valuable I think I'm leaning Jones.

    Uhhh give me Chris Jones, Ramsey, Hill, Buckner, or Howard. Then maybe I’d consider Zeke, and I’m a Zeke fan.

    Ezekiel Elliott was one of the best players in the league in 2016.

    He won in college prior to that.

    That was FIVE years ago.

    What's he done since except put himself before the team?

    He personally ruined 17 and 19.

    Actually, FORGET about what he has or hasn't done.....the position ALONE should make him slide in a redraft.

    I understand the Zeke hate after 2020, but let's remember he was probably banged up more than we know (calf, hamstring, etc.) and the patchwork offensive line didn't help. The fumbling issue is the only thing that truly bothers me.

    Let's wait one more year before we write off his career.

    No RB is worth the 4th pick in the draft. Plain and simple.

    Apparently the Cowboys weren't an Ezekiel Elliott away from winning the Super Bowl either.

    We got the best player in the 2016 draft with the 135th pick and still couldn’t capitalize on it.

    Well, Jerry was trying to create his own personal Tom Landry.

    Didn't work.

    Yeah, that is hilarious. I guess Henry just isn’t that good without Tannehill at the helm. :muttley:

    Let's all remember that Zeke was the last piece to an offense that was designed for a real QB. A QB that got broke and when fixed wasn't allowed to have his job back for whatever reason. When this franchise made the decision to move on from that QB to the new one, they should have let Zeke go or tried to get something for him. Now it's too late for that.
