MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Running back Tony Pollard is the second Memphis Tiger off the board in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Pollard was selected in the 4th round by the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.

Pollard starred as a kick returner with the Tigers, returning seven kicks for touchdowns, a school record. His career 4,680 all-purpose yards ranks second in school history to DeAngelo Williams.

He’ll bring his speed to Dallas where he could provide a nice change of pace behind incumbent running back Ezekiel Elliott. Pollard also provides versatility with experience at wide receiver.
