Ezekiel Elliott: Stats, Bio & Draft Status

National Championship - Oregon v Ohio State

Ohio State Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott has emerged as one of the best running backs in college football.

Elliott has rushed for 1,632 yards this season. With his 200-plus yard performance in the 2014-15 National Championship Game against the Oregon Ducks, he finished the season with three consecutive 200-yard rushing performances — against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon.

Because Elliott is a true sophomore, he will return to school next year. He was a 4-star recruit, who was ranked 47th overall by Scout, 70th by 247Sports, 84th by Rivals and 109th by ESPN. As a senior, he rushed for 2,155 yards and 40 TDs.

Elliott will most likely be a 2015 Heisman Trophy front-runner.
