FRISCO — With each NFL season, Ezekiel Elliott has taken on a larger leadership role for the Dallas Cowboys.

The two-time rushing champ, who turns 24 in July, entered the league in 2016 as someone who mostly led by example.

He enters Year 4 as more of a vocal leader and the face of a team looking to get back to the NFC championship game for the first time in 24 years.

“I’m just excited about the group of guys we have,” Elliott said Sunday during his annual youth football ProCamp inside the Ford Center. “I’m excited about the talent we have on this team. I’m excited about the leadership group we have. I think we have a lot of the right pieces. I think we have a lot of promise for this season.”

During a sit-down interview with CBS 11 (KTVT-DFW) on Sunday, the two-time Pro Bowler was asked about maturing off the field.

“Just kind of growing up,” Elliott said. “I came into this league real young and had a lot to learn. I got those boo-boos, I messed up a couple of times and I learned from my mistakes. It made me a better person.”

In that same CBS 11 interview, Elliott made it clear that he believes he’s “the best running back in the league,” adding that his statistics “speak for themselves.”

He also explained why he thinks the Cowboys are capable of being the league’s best team this season.

“I think we have a lot of the right pieces,” Elliott said. “I think we’re loaded at every position. We have a lot of depth and we have a great group of leaders and some great team chemistry going on. We just have to lay that foundation now and carry it through camp and make it happen during the season.”

Ezekiel Elliott’s message to the kids at his youth camp: “Just to work hard. Just to compete. It doesn’t just mean on the field, but off the field. In the classroom. If you’re at home, making your bed or you’re cleaning your room, just to pursue excellence in everything you do.” pic.twitter.com/IaLR0Su1Bg
