Considered to be the draft's top running back, Ezekiel Elliot has a pre-draft visit scheduled with the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are looking for help at running back after letting Lamar Miller leave in free agency. A lot of fans like Jay Ajayi, but it seems the regime would like to add someone else to the rotation. The Dolphins have added Daniel Thomas (ugh) and Isiah Pead. I really like Elliot and if he is there when we pick, I'd pull the trigger and select him.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
