The Dallas Cowboys’ offensive line still remains amongst the elite.

Welcome to the fifth installment of my positional review within the NFC East division. Starting on the offensive side of the ball, the Dallas Cowboys have dominated these rankings so far.

After four rounds of positional reviews, the Dallas Cowboys own a comfortable lead over their other NFC East rivals. The Cowboys currently have16 total points (I’ll discuss how the teams earn points shortly). Philadelphia is next with ten points, while the Giants are third with eight. Lastly, Washington has just one point.

If you would like to go back and read any of the other reviews, you can do so by checking out the quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, and tight ends. Today, we move towards the trenches, discussing the guys responsible for all that glitz and glamor. This one is for the big boys up front, aka the offensive line.

The Dallas Cowboys have a rich and deep history when it comes to their offensive line. Whether it be Hall of Fame players such as Rayfield Wright and Larry Allen or club greats such as Nate Newton and Erik Williams, the Cowboys have always had great protection for their offense.

Even some of their “forgotten” gems like Flozell Adams or Ralph Neely would rankly highly within other organizations as all-time players. Nowadays, the team is set up the same as it has ever been.

Before we get to breaking down the NFC East offensive lines, here is how teams earn points for their roster. Each position will earn five points to the best group, three points to second place, and one point to third. We’ll start off with the fourth-place team who will get no points for their wall of protection.
