Cowboys’ Zack Martin Graded As NFL’s Top Right Guard

The most obvious take in all of football since 2014 is that the have the best in all of football.

Three picks, three All-Pro players, and three Pro Bowlers all on the same line, with ready to stake his own All-Pro and claims in 2017. It is often argued which of these three linemen, , , and Zach Martin, is the best overall offensive linemen both on the Cowboys and in the league.

Personally, I have graded as “OL1” not only on the Cowboys, but throughout the entire league. At the very least, I have no doubts he is the best in the world, and will be so for a long time.

Pro seems to agree with me, at least to a certain degree.

Yesterday, PFF tweeted out their top graded player at every position on the offensive line in 2016, with Zack Martin graded as the league's top .

Personally, I would argue that Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick are also the best at their respective positions, but we know how suspect PFF's grades can be at times. Yes, I am a bit biased, but it's obvious to just about everyone how great Smith and Frederick are.

I have written a lot about Zack Martin's greatness over my past year at , including my “Zack Martin Appreciation Day” post after week 4 of last season.

Regardless of whether Martin is the best offensive linemen in the whole league or not, he is certainly in that conversation, as are two of the other four starters on the Dallas' line.

With the young and talented backfield of and behind them, and talented weapons like and on the outside, the Dallas Cowboys are set up to be extremely explosive offensively for a while.

Hopefully, health will be on their side in 2017 so we can watch this work to its full potential.
