Tennessee RB John Kelly would serve as nice backup for Ezekiel Elliott


While he may not be able to break from the defense as well as Ezekiel Elliott, Tennessee’s John Kelly definitely has a similar style to the star running back, which would work well in the Dallas Cowboys offense.

Although he’s on the shorter side, his explosiveness makes up for it.

His patience is key as he allows blocks to develop and works off of them.

Kelly would make for a nice backup when “Zeke” is in need of rest.

While playing for the Vols, Kelly recorded 1,573 rushing yards, averaging 4.8 yards per carry, to go along with 16 touchdowns.
