Cowboys G Zack Martin Was As Dominant As Ever Last Season

    The had the top-ranked in the NFL in 2019. It was led by the extraordinary leap of into the conversation of the league's best with 4,902 yards (2nd in the NFL) and 30 touchdowns (4th in the NFL). Much of that can be contributed to his excellent blocking upfront and in particular All-Pro .

    According to , Martin didn't allow a single sack in 630 pass-blocking snaps in 2019.

    Martin was on the field for 1,115 snaps last season which were 57 more than his previous best in 2016. For the fifth time in six years, Martin started all 16 games for the Cowboys (missed two starts due to MCL sprain in 2018).

    The Cowboys iron man's dominance can be traced back a long way. In a piece I did last month, Pro also noted recently that Martin hasn't allowed a sack since of the , and has only allowed eight for his entire career, in 3,711 pass-blocking snaps. If that isn't totally destroying your competition I don't know what is.

    There's no question that if Martin continues this level of dominance that's he's a shoo-in first-ballot Hall of Famer. He's made the and been selected as an All-Pro in each of his six seasons. Now, with Travis Frederick retiring suddenly back in March, Martin's stellar play inside will be more paramount than ever as will presumably take over the starting role at like he did in Frederick's absence due to him missing all of 2018 with Guillian-Barre Syndrome.

    Look for another Pro Bowl/All-Pro season for Martin in 2020.

    Thank God for Z Martin our only o-lineman left from that dominant line of a few yrs ago who is still in his prime. Although kudos to the cowboys for locking up L Collins who has developed into one of the better R Tackles in the league. I’m a little worried about the center and other guard position though. C Williams was underwhelming so thats 2/5 if our line with big question marks, not to mention T Smith is getting long in the tooth.
