I understand this is the second offensive lineman that has made my top 5 Dallas players that I think are irreplaceable, but that’s just how important I think the OL is to this team. Of course, the man that started all, Tyron Smith, falls in at number four. But, I really contemplated placing him even higher.

The left position is perhaps one of the most important out of all positions in the entire NFL. In fact, I personally think is the only position more important.

The LT is responsible for protecting the blindside of the QB, which is why they make the big bucks. Quarterbacks are hard to come by in the NFL, especially good ones. You have to keep them upright and healthy if you want your team to have any kind of success.

Tyron Smith is one of the best in the business and fortunately he plays for the . He is big, strong, and athletic. He is dominant in both the passing and , and there simply isn’t another player on the roster that is even remotely close enough to being able to do what he does.

The fact the Cowboys don’t even know who they’re starting will be in 2017 makes Smith’s irreplaceability even more evident. He battled through last season, which made him miss a little bit of time. If it happens again in 2017, the Cowboys could be in trouble.

What do you think?
