By now, it’s no secret that the Dallas Mavericks are a team that desperately wants to add a running game to their roster.
This year’s draft saw the Cowboys add a potential franchise-record 13 running backs to fill the void left by Darren McFadden, and this was no different.
While McFadden is gone, Ezekiel Elliott has proven that he is the clear number one running back on the board.
Now that Elliott has a proven track record, it seems that the Cowboys are open to adding a runner in the 2019 NFL Draft.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Cowboys have reportedly reached out to two potential running backs, according to the ESPN Insider.
Wojnarows report says that Dallas is interested in drafting Ezekiel Elliott, but that the team’s “interest” in the Tennessee Titans is not a priority.
Woj says that Elliott is “very interested” in coming to Dallas and that he would be interested in playing with the team if given the opportunity.
If Dallas is able to secure Elliott’s services, it would be a huge boost to the Cowboys’ backfield and possibly make him a priority to sign.
The Cowboys also had a very strong draft in 2018, with several potential running back targets that they could have used in the first round.
Although, the team will have to wait a few weeks to see if Elliott signs with Dallas.
If Elliott does end up in Dallas, it could be one of the most significant moves in franchise history.
If not, the running back position could be a major issue for the Cowboys going forward.
