Zack Martin Named The Best Cowboys Draft Pick Of The Decade

The is right around the corner, and with it comes a great time for reflection on how your team has done on draft day in the past.

For the , it's sort of a been a tale of two halves. The beginning of the decade saw the Cowboys completely rebuild the infrastructure of their team with top notch talent, while the back-half of the decade included some high profile misses (looking at you, 2018 Draft).

Bleacher Report's Gary Davenport named the best draft pick of the decade across the , with earning the honor for the Dallas Cowboys.

“There isn't a GM in the league who has hit on a higher percentage of Round 1 picks in recent years. Since 2010, Jones has made nine first-round selections. Seven have played in at least one .”

To say Martin had competition for this honor would be an understatement. Dallas has owned the for much of the last decade, drafting Pro Bowlers and All Pros like , , , and .

But Zack Martin is the winner here, and I don't disagree with Gary's logic whatsoever. Martin is on a trajectory, being named first team All Pro four of his first six seasons and making the Pro Bowl each of his six years.

If not the single best at his position in a given year, Zack Martin has been top 2 or 3 among all offensive guards across the league since his rookie season. Martin's infusion into the 2014 Cowboys instantly created the league's best , and catapulted their offense into an elite level.

He is the team's best player, and now with Travis Frederick's his job has become even more important.
