Elliott is on pace to challenge the NFL’s Eric Dickerson’s rookie record for rushing yards and touchdowns. Dickerson rushed for 1,808 yards and 18 TDs in 1983 while Elliott is on pace for 1,782 yards and 14 TDs.
Elliott, who rushed for 3,961 yards in his college career, hasn’t been afraid to express his Ohio State legacy. He flashed the Ohio State “O” after scoring a touchdown against the Cleveland Brown on Sunday.
