    Dak PrescottQB Dak Prescott

    The most improbable story in the of the Cowboys' franchise has a new wrinkle to it, as rookie has been named to his first Pro Bowl.

    You can't mention Dak Prescott in the Cowboys backfield without his fellow-rookie , who has lived up to every expectation placed on him when he was drafted fourth overall.

    Elliott has been able to showcase his skills behind the best in the league, and the result is the league-leading rusher going to the Pro Bowl in his rookie season with 1,551 yards to date.

    C Travis Frederick

    Frederick was named to his third straight Pro Bowl, the -man for Dallas' star-studded offensive line. Having not allowed a sack all season, Frederick is on a long-term deal that was signed this , and yet another Pro Bowl roster spot proves why he is worth every cent.

    Martin will also be appearing in his third straight Pro Bowl, and it would be tough to make a case for him not being the best in the game. A force in the for Ezekiel Elliott, Martin simply excels at everything the Cowboys ask him to do from the position.

    LT Tyron Smith

    is going to make the Pro Bowl until the end of time. This will be the cornerstone left 's fourth consecutive trip to the game, where he can show off his knack for tossing around the league's best pass rushers like paper weights.

    Smith is truly a guy that front offices dream about building their franchise around, and it is no surprise that the Pro Bowl honors have come his way consistently.

    With the exception of Dak Prescott, all five of these Cowboys' players are listed as starters for the Pro Bowl. Most impressively, this means that Ezekiel Elliott ranks ahead of David Johnson and .

    Johnson and Freeman should see plenty of carries in this game though, because Zeke is going to be running the Cowboys to Houston for . He'll of course be taking the Space Cowboys with him, and his quarterback Dak Prescott, so this roster could look drastically different.
