Don't get me wrong, Zeke is a beast & will thrive with the Cowboys, I just think the Cowboys get good enough production from the run game due to their O-line anyways, for example Demarco Murray running for 1800+ yards & DMC last year had 1000+ rushing with over a 4.5 YPC.
Imo the Cowboys didn't need a star RB as much as they needed talent on Defense. While Jalen Ramsey didn't have a lot of picks due to atleast 4 drops in 2015 he was still a top 3/5 Player & lock down Corner. If you look at the last few SB champs they had stud DB's like Aqib Talib, Chris Harris, TJ Ward, Darrell Revis, Devin McCourtey, Legion of Boom. The Cowboys could of have a Byron Jones-Jalen Ramsey tandem at CB & then with 2d RD pick could of gotten Noah Spence which would of been huge as well for the Cowboys Defense & their passrush but instead they went with a player who might be the overall best talent in the Draft in Jaylon Smith, too bad the guy has a possible career ending nerve injury & might never play or be the same player he once was, really a shame too because Jaylon Smith is 1 of the most talented LB's I have seen coming out of CFB.
Again I think the Cowboys got a legit RB in Zeke Elliot & I am not looking forward to having to watch the Eagles try to contain Romo, Dez, Witten, CBeasley, & Zeke Elliot twice a year but I rather have that situation than for the Cowboys to have gotten legit talent for the Defense that it sorely needed. Other than Romo's health it's the Cowboys Defense holding them back from winning right now & the pairing of Ramsey & Spence/Jack would of been huge for the Cowboys Defense, just glad I don't have to see a pairing of Byron Jones & Jalen Ramsey twice a year tbh.
