The Dallas Cowboys have without a doubt the best offensive line in all of football. Game in and game out they are protecting Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott and without them this team would not be 8-1. Now let’s give a little bit more info on the current starting offensive linemen:

Left Tackle- Tyron Smith
Tyron Smith was drafted ninth overall in the 2011 draft out of USC. He is a very big guy and his size helps out a lot when he has to go up against some of the defensive ends in the game. He has been battling a back injury for most of the season, but has looked good when he has played.

Left Guard- Ronald Leary
Ronald Leary was an undrafted free agent out of Memphis in 2012. He was the starter until La’el Collins came to town, but since Collins is out for the season, Leary has had to fill in and has played above expectations.

Center- Travis Frederick
Travis Frederick was taken 31st overall in the 2013 draft out of Wisconsin. Ever since he was drafted he has been one of the best centers in the league. He has a high football IQ and has great chemistry with Prescott.

Right Guard- Zack Martin
The Dallas Cowboys did the right thing in the 2014 draft when they decided to take Zack Martin over Johnny Manziel with the 16th overall pick. He has been outstanding ever since he came into the league and many would consider him the best right guard in the game.

Right Tackle- Doug Free
At 32, Doug Free is the oldest of the offensive line. He was drafted in 2007 and has been with the Cowboys ever since. His veteran leadership has really helped out the young offensive linemen.

The Cowboys use to have one of the worst offensive lines in the league, but now they have probably the best. Building the offensive line through the draft has been a focal point the past few seasons and it was clearly the smart move as the Cowboys have the best record in the league.
