Dallas Cowboys offense

Offensive Line (9) Tyron Smith, La’el Collins, Zack Martin, Connor Williams, Tyler Biadasz, Connor McGovern, Ty Nsekhe, Josh Ball, Brandon Knight

As I discussed a week ago, the Dallas Cowboys offensive line is back, baby. This could be the best unit they’ve rolled out in nearly five years. Smith finally had that surgery he’s needed to for so long and that should correct many of his lingering issues. Before last year the 30-year old LT never missed more than 3 games per season so at the very least we should expect a return to the old – which is still a top 10 NFL OT. But don’t be shocked if he plays healthier and better than he has in 5-years. That’s my prediction.

La’el Collins looks leaner and meaner than he ever has and is primed to have his best season as a pro. Zack Martin is at the top of his game and is a top-2 OG in the NFL. Connor Williams rated as a top-20 OG last season and has been improving every season he’s played. At just 24 he’s one of the youngest offensive linemen in the game and this year he’s playing for a new deal. Can you say, “Career year?”

Tyler Biadasz is a mystery but the job is his for the taking and reports are he looks great heading into his second season. Connor McGovern hasn’t done much to inspire confidence but he’s a good backup in the interior and an upgrade over Joe Looney.

Ty Nsekhe and Josh Ball offer depth at tackle and are favorites to make the 53-man roster. Finally we have Brandon Knight getting the nod over Terence Steele as the last O-lineman on the team. He claims the spot because of his ability to play 4 of the 5 positions.
