When I watch Zack Martin, two things pop in my head; consistency and solid. And if the Cowboys board gets wiped out of defensive lineman, you could do a lot worse than Martin. A four year starter at Notre Dame, Martin could start at right guard on day one and eventually replace Doug Free at right tackle. If you haven’t had to a chance to see Martin, I encourage you to watch his game below against potential first round pick Trent Murphy which you can find below:

With the selection of Martin, the Cowboys could move on from Mackenzy Bernadeau, who has had an up and down career. Bernadeau  just turned 28 and could take a pay cut to become a backup. But Martin is a better guard right now would save the team a total of more than five million over the next two years. That cap savings almost could exclusively pay for a veteran defensive tackle via free agency.

CutMackenzy Bernadeau (June 1st Cut ) – Save 2,225,000 in 2014 and 3,250,000 in 2015.
