The Cowboys selected Green in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, with the hope he could develop into the starting right tackle for years to come.

Sadly, due to poor play and multiple injuries, he has yet to live up to the hype. With the starting job there for the taking, it would be the perfect time for Green to have a breakout year.
In the best case, Green is able to show the coaches he can be a solid starter and stay healthy. If he is able to to solidify the right tackle position, Collins can stay at left guard and the offensive line would be set. This would give the Cowboys five starters all under the age of 30, with the potential to grow as a unit.
In the worst case, Green continues to struggle with either his play or injuries and Dallas moves on after his rookie deal expires.
This would create another problem on the offensive line, as the Cowboys would have to move Collins to right tackle and figure out how to fill the left guard spot, or play Bell until they find a long term solution.
