Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line

This position group has the most uncertainly as far as I am concern. Right now, Dallas has one healthy and proven starting offensive tackle in Tyler Smith.

The last time we witnessed Terence Steele, he was departing the field with an ACL and MCL injury. He is likely to begin training camp on the PUP list.

I’m not confident that Tyron Smith will stay healthy for the entire season. Smith hadn’t played a full season since 2015.

Josh Ball has limited experience. Matt Waletzko is a player in the developmental stages.

Dallas was able to sign free agent Chuma Edoga. He has the ability to play both tackle and guard, which appeals to the Cowboys as they prefer linemen with versatility.

Over the last ten years, the Cowboys have invested a significant amount of resources in their offensive line. People who are more intelligent than me have recommended they look for top-notch players in skill positions.

I’m not opposed to this train of thought, but all the weapons in the world won’t help if your quarterback is under seized.

The Cowboys have been in a state of uncertainty with their left guard spot since Ron Leary’s departure. If my calculations are correct, that’s been going on for 7 years. The Cowboys can remedy the situation this year while still bringing in more talent at the tackle spot.
