Late this afternoon there are reports circling social media that the Baltimore Ravens would consider drafting Ohio State Buckeyes star runningback Ezekiel Elliott with the No.6 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
A surprise team that'll strongly consider RB Ezekiel Elliott if he's available when they are up: The #Ravens. Could be Tunsil vs. Elliott.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 28, 2016
Rumors continue. Basically they could take Elliott, Bosa, Stanley, Buckner, Tunsil, Ramsey, trade up or down. Got it https://t.co/b3QeZtlAqC— Sarah Ellison (@sgellison) April 28, 2016
There were reports earlier this week that the Ravens are making it a priority to take a pass rusher in the first round.Could the latest news be a smokescreen? Or could Elliott be the guy the Ravens have been after all along? If so, the Ravens may have found itself drafting not only the best runningback in this draft, but the best runningback drafted in the top 10 since Adrian Peterson in 2007.
