When talking about the Dallas Cowboys for the 2021 season, people are excited to see Dak Prescott back, and rightfully so. But as people name other players, one name is absent from most people’s list: Tyler Biadasz.
I know that offensive line, and especially center, is not always the most exciting position to watch, but Biadasz is a huge key to the offensive success of the Cowboys and needs more attention than he is getting.
When Travis Frederick retired, everyone felt like the center position would become a huge problem. Instead, Tyler Biadasz stepped in and showed that he could play center and play center well. Now, heading into a full offseason and hopefully a full season with Dak Prescott, Biadasz could take more than just another step.
One Dallas Cowboys name who isn’t getting enough attention is Tyler Biadasz.

For every person who is excited for CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, and Michael Gallup it all starts with Tyler Biadasz. If Ezekiel Elliott is your guy on offense, the run blocking starts again with Tyler Biadasz. No matter who you want to see on offense, Biadasz should be the first person you think of if you want success.
The center position is always overlooked by a lot of people. The center has the responsibility to adjust blocking schemes and assignments. The center will help the quarterback see how the linebackers are aligned and then adjust the line and recognize gap assignments. He is usually the first person to see how the defense is aligned. Yes, he snaps the ball, but there is so much more to the job.
If you are one of those people use strictly uses PFF grades, then Biadasz won’t impress you as much as he should. He only had four penalties last year and gave up a mere, one sack. He was a solid center along a line that was decimated by injury and had a carousel of quarterbacks behind him. When you go back and watch him, he did everything well considering the circumstances.
Heading into 2022 Biadasz is not going to be on a lot of radars. He will quietly go about his job and as long as nothing is glaring, people won’t notice. But the offensive success will start with Biadasz, and there should be excitement to see what kind of player he develops into. For now, he is a really solid center that the Cowboys can rely on for years to come.
