    RG Zack Martin PFF’s Top Run Blocking Guard In 2016

    After already being graded outright by Pro Football Focus as the NFL's best right guard, a sentiment that has had no trouble believing with our own eyes since 2014, Zack Martin was given PFF's top run blocking score among all guards.

    Martin once again help pave the path for a ' to lead the league in rushing, as he did in his rookie year of 2014 – when the Cowboys' , now widely accepted as the best in the league, really emerged. That year it was of course – who departed for the Eagles – and in 2017 it was the dynamic first-round pick making Martin's efforts as a dominant RG look even stronger.

    There simply is not enough praise to send Zack Martin's way to fully appreciate how great he's been from his first day in the NFL, but the Cowboys are about to reward his efforts with an enormous new contract that is reportedly expected to come his way early into .

    Raiders' guard Gabe Jackson just received a five-year extension for $56 million, and as you see above he is not even Oakland's best guard (at least in the rushing game).

    Martin is going to break the bank, but the Cowboys is undoubtedly their identity for a long time, and they'll pay anything to protect that identity up front.

    Prediction: l’ael Collins becomes all pro at RT, and cooper shines as left guard

    Sean Martin

    Could see this prediction for Cooper coming true a lot more than Collins. Thanks for reading!

    I swear when ever I hear various sources say we’re the best “Run blocking ” o line or we have the best o line man at “run blocking” I always feel like it’s a code word for Dallas sucks at pass blocking

    John Williams

    Why? They are evaluating them on the different aspects of what it takes to be an offensive lineman.

    Saying one thing doesn’t automatically create an inverse relation to another thing.

    Because if I say that Whataburger is great, that doesn’t mean that Five Guys sucks.

    Like if I talk about how good Dez Bryant is at going up to get a football, that doesn’t mean he isn’t a good route runner.

    Don’t be so sensitive.

    You never hear how great we are at pass blocking though, doesn’t really matter as long as we get to the NFC title game

    John Williams

    Because the run game is their bread and butter. everything works off of that. And, while it’s nice to hear good things about your team, we know they are good at blocking people. Doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks.

    You aren’t wrong
