Cardale Jones is impressed with one of his former Ohio State teammates.
Jones took to Twitter on Thursday to congratulate Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott on his selection to the Pro Bowl. Then Jones took it a step further, calling Elliott’s rookie campaign “the best ever in all of sport.”
Congrats to my bro @EzekielElliott making the 2017 Pro Bowl and on having the BEST rookie season EVER in all of sport

Elliott is basically a shoe-in for the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year. He leads the league in rushing with 1,551 yards in 14 games and has scored 13 touchdowns. Elliott is 257 yards shy of breaking Eric Dickerson’s rookie rushing record, which has stood since 1983.
Elliott is doing more than just running the ball, too. A video released by the NFL Twitter account on Thursday showed Elliott mic’d up in the Cowboys last game and featured a few clips of him blocking.
"Just block" – @EzekielElliott can do more than just run the ball!?
