Zack Martin Makes First-Team All-Pro, Three Cowboys on Second-Team

As the get ready to play their playoff game tomorrow night versus the , some players on the team received the honor to be in the the All-Pro teams. The Cowboys had many key pieces this season and this group of players seems to be the best of them all.

The only Dallas Cowboy to make the first-team All-Pro is Right Zack Martin. Despite dealing with an this season, Martin managed to maintain his position as one of the league's best players at his position. In four of his five seasons in the league, Martin has been named a first-team All-Pro. I won't be surprised if this streak goes on for a long time.

Despite him being the only one to make the first team, three more Cowboys were able to get in the second-team.

Ezekiel Elliott couldn't get enough first-team votes over ' , but his season shouldn't be overlooked. After all, he's the 2018 NFL's rushing champion and has been the best player on the Cowboys' . The team has relied heavily on their star to bounce back from a 3-5 start to the season.

Next on the list is the rookie sensation out of Boise State. Leighton Vander Esch has really exceeded expectations, even as a pick. Once the unquestionable starter went down injured and Vander Esch made the most out of his opportunity to get on the field. Since then, he's become one of the best linebackers in the league. His impact is constantly felt when the Cowboys' is on the field. Vander Esch couldn't beat the ' rookie LB for the first team spot. Even still, it's a great accomplishment for the rookie.

Last but definitely not least, is CB Byron Jones. DB Coach did an excellent job taking advantage of Jones' talent. After many years of watching Jones play in different spots along the defensive backfield, it's great to see him earn a second-team All-Pro spot. He's done an excellent job covering his side of the field week in and week out and he's faced some pretty tough receivers. Many believed he would make the first-team, but Kyle Fuller and beat the Cowboys' CB to it.

Fortunately, the Cowboys won't have much time to celebrate their teammates making the All-Pro teams since they'll be preparing for their playoff matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
