Dallas Cowboys Center: Tyler Biadasz

Tyler Biadasz, the real wildcard of the O-line, finds himself in pretty freakin’ ideal scenario here in 2021. He has one year under his belt and a full offseason in the program. He’s being handed a starting job without any major challenger to be seen. He’s the only unproven part on an All-Star offensive line and will only have to carry his own weight and needn’t worry about others.

After an up-and-down rookie year, the Dallas Cowboys are bullish on Biadasz heading into the season. He graded as an elite run-blocker most of the year and is coming back healthy and focused on the job in 2021.

There’s generally a significant learning curve for centers in the NFL and the signs indicate he endured those last year. This year is all about the jump and his coaches indicate they expect a significant elevation from the former Wisconsin center this year.

Dallas Cowboys O-line Depth

As we saw firsthand last season, you need a lot more than an elite frontline to survive an NFL season and adequate depth is a must for a championship minded team like the Dallas Cowboys. Luckily, Dallas is fairly loaded with depth.

Connor McGovern is the big interior insurance policy for Dallas. With the ability to play all three inside spots, McGovern can back-up both guard spots while also offering insurance to the center position. If Biadasz struggles, the former top-100 pick can slide in and take over.

Outside the Dallas Cowboys invested a top draft pick in Josh Ball (a guy with character concerns but starting LT potential) and free agent money to veteran swing tackle Ty Nsekhe.  In case they don’t work out, Dallas has a proven depth player like Brandon Knight who has experience playing guard and both tackle spots. They even have second year player Terence Steele who struggled last year but has some traits worth developing as 4th option at tackle.

The Dallas Cowboys are loaded in the starting ranks as well as in depth. They couldn’t survive last year’s injuries again, but let’s be honest, no one could. The point is there’s reason to believe all their starters will be more durable this year (Last year was the first time in Tyron’s career he missed more than 3-games in a season).
