When it comes to the 2020 season, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott isn’t short on confidence.
With three pro bowl seasons under his belt, this confidence could easily be self reflected for the 25-year-old back. But in a recent press conference, Elliott was focused on the pride he has in his teammates.
“This is probably the most talented team I’ve been on,” Elliott said. “Just look at the depth chart, look at the roster, look at how many Pro Bowlers, how many All-Pro guys we have out there.”
The Cowboys had many key acquisitions this offseason including Cee Dee Lamb and Trevon Diggs by way of the draft and a pair of pro bowl defensive ends in Everson Griffen and Aldon Smith.
Even with Elliott’s excitement for his new teammates, the Cowboys also benefit from his base production, especially with how he’s evolved his game this offseason.
“(Elliott) wants his game to evolve to that, he wants to be able to move all the way around, and I think that creates a new dynamic for our offense,” quarterback Dak Prescott said. “We talk about the receivers and Blake Jarwin and the tight ends that we have. But when you can put Zeke out there and don’t know whether he’s going to run a route from there or motion back into the backfield and it be a run or play action, it just allows our game to be unlimited.”
Despite an evolving game though, Elliott’s goals this season are simple: he wants to raise the Lombardi trophy when it’s over.
“My individual goals are just to win a Super Bowl,” Elliott said. “We have a great team. It’s our time.”
