It’s official. With the 218th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys have selected Ohio State running back Mike Weber. The Cowboys already picked up Tony Pollard, now they add another backup for Ezekiel Elliott.

Adequately skilled runner with decent size who can get what is blocked but is unlikely to find his own yards often enough at the NFL level. Weber does a nice job of spying second-level linebackers and making lane choices relative to where the defensive flow is headed. However, even when he sees it, he struggles to access enough acceleration to rip past the first two levels of tacklers. He can make the initial tackler miss but doesn’t string moves together effectively. He could have a career cap as a RB3.
