Dallas Cowboys Dynasty: The Missing Offensive Pieces
On the other hand, the Cowboys had no idea what they were getting when they selected Rayne Dakota Prescott with their second fourth round selection in the NFL Draft.
Dak Prescott had the third best passer rating out of any starting quarterback in the NFL (104.9). Prescott completed 67.8 percent of his passes for 3667 yards, averaging 8.0 yards per attempt and throwing 23 touchdowns to only 4 interceptions.
Dak consistently made great decisions and physically performed at a very high level, earning a trip to the Pro-Bowl as a rookie. His confidence, work ethic, and natural leadership skills are already at a truly elite level. The sky is the limit for this truly spectacular young man that will likely be the next great Dallas Cowboys quarterback in the history books.
These two rookies provided a spark to the Dallas Cowboys organization that is unrivaled in history. Honestly, the last time two rookies made such an impressive immediate impact was probably when Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus were selected by the Chicago Bears in the 1965 draft and went on to be Hall Of Famers.
The Cowboys offensive line is undoubtedly the most popular line in the NFL, and is probably the most dominant position group in the entire league. Dallas has three guys that are 26 years old or younger that are perennial All-Pro players. The great news is, tackle Tyron Smith and center Travis Frederick are inked to long term deals and guard Zack Martin will likely get his extension sometime this summer, keeping the strongest part of the team in tact for the foreseeable future.
Guard Ronald Leary, who played at an elite level after taking over for an injured La’el Collins just a few games into the season, is likely out the door as an unrestricted free agent so the left guard spot with Collins starting will be an area to watch for next season.
