Another positional review, another first place for the Dallas Cowboys. Even in a slight state of flux for this group, they are still clearly the best within the NFC East.
The line is anchored by two future Hall of Fame inductees in Smith and Martin. As Smith starts to turn the back nine of his career (he’s still only 29 years old), he is the elder statesman of this group. There is no dropoff in production, however, as 2019 marked his seventh straight Pro Bowl nomination. Martin, meanwhile, is on the shortlist of best guards in the entire league.
Collins gets overshadowed by those two but is certainly one of the more dominant right tackles in the game. Looney, meanwhile, will get another crack at the starting center spot with the abrupt retirement of Travis Frederick.
Williams, McGovern, and Biadasz, along with Looney could all enter a four-way battle for two starting spots with the odd two out joining Erving as the primary backups. The Cowboys line represents both solid, if not spectacular starters and supreme depth.
With the offensive side of the ball now complete, the Dallas Cowboys continue to grow their lead over the rest of the division. The Cowboys now sit at 21 points with Philadelphia next at 13 and New York at 10. Come back next week as we start the defensive side of the ball with the big men upfront.
