Ezekiel Elliott visiting with Eagles, Bears and Dolphins

The Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears will get a late look at Ezekiel Elliott in the draft process.

The former Ohio State star has scheduled pre-draft visits to those clubs, he told NFL Network's "Total Access" on Thursday.

"I'm lucky to be in this situation, and I'll be happy with whoever drafts me," Elliott said.

Elliott is considered the top running back prospect in the draft after posting back-to-back 1,800-yard seasons for the Buckeyes. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks projects two of those teams, the Eagles and Bears, to pass on Elliott before the Dolphins take him with the No. 13 overall pick of the draft.

Analyst Charley Casserly's mock draft projects the Eagles to grab Elliott, however, before the Bears and Dolphins get the chance. The Eagles and Dolphins swapped first-round picks at Nos. 8 and 13 last month, giving Philadelphia the first chance among the three to take Elliott.

While Elliott declined to note any favorites Thursday, he's previously mentioned the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants as two clubs with whom he sees himself fitting well with. The Cowboys, drafting No. 4 overall, have the offensive line Elliott would like to run behind. As for the skill position players he'd like to play with, he's mentioned the Giants' Eli Manning and Odell Beckham.
