The Dallas Cowboys selected guard Zack Martin out of Notre Dame in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. While many, including Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had some interest in making a splash selection of quarterback Johnny Manziel to eventually take over for Tony Romo, the franchise made a smart decision in selecting Martin with the No. 16 overall pick.
Martin has made Stephen Jones and the rest of the organization look like geniuses for bypassing the shiny object for the trench player. All that’s happened since is Martin has become one of the top linemen in the game and perhaps the best guard in the league.
Martin consistently makes all-star and best of lists and seems on a surefire trajectory to be the one of the current Cowboys players to eventually make his way to the halls of Canton.
Our player profile countdown continues with No. 70 Zack Martin.
