Taking over for one of the best, and most likable players on the team is never an easy job. But that’s the position that Tyler Biadasz found himself in when he had to replace Travis Frederick. A former first-round pick, Frederick ended up retiring after a battle with Guilian Barre syndrome. The autoimmune disease impacted his play, and Frederick said he needed to retire since he could no longer perform at the level he expected of himself.

Biadasz is also a product of Wisconsin and was selected in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL draft. As a rookie, he played sparingly behind bridge starter Joe Looney. By his second season in the league, he took over and has been the starting center ever since.

Entering year five, Biadasz is set for free agency, and there might not be a huge market for him, but there is some team out there that’s going to be willing to pay more than the Cowboys likely are. That leaves a hole in the middle of their offensive line.

If Dallas really wanted to solve the position and improve vastly, they could look to Jackson Powers-Johnson from Oregon. Powers-Johnson spent the first two seasons of his career as a reserve and took snaps at nearly every position. By 2023 he was a starting center for the Ducks and proved to be the best in the nation.

The only question is if he will last long enough for Dallas to take him at No. 24 overall, but if he does, he would be a day-one starter and solve the position for the next 10 years or longer.
