Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday during a conference call with Arizona media that one of the reasons the Cowboys drafted RB Ezekiel Elliott was because of how much Ohio State coach Urban Meyer touted his effort without the ball. "His coaches at Ohio State stood on the the table for him in that regard," Garrett said. "Urban Meyer told us he's the best player he's ever had when he doesn't have the ball in his hands. He's demonstrated that to us over the course of the last year or so. That's just who he is."
