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, 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' 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.
