1. Zack Martin, Guard

Honestly, if you thought this list was going to conclude any other way you probably have not been watching the Dallas Cowboys that much in recent years. The four-time All-Pro guard Zack Martin has been the most consistent player on the Cowboys during his career.

Martin has been a premier member of the teams’ offensive line ever since his first season back in 2014. He has made the Pro Bowl every single year and has only missed four games in his career.

The 30-year old guard has been the rock of this organization for six years and has continued his high-level of play this season. However, he arguably expanded his value this year in the teams’ matchup yesterday against the Vikings.

Dallas started Martin at right tackle and not only did the team manage to post its first 30 point game since week five, but running back Ezekiel Elliott also had his first 100-yard rushing game on the year. Zeke was able to reach that milestone for the first time this year in large part due to the stellar play of Martin.

The Dallas Cowboys offensive line has been the strength of the team over much of the past decade. That fact is in large part due to the amazing play of Zack Martin, Tyron Smith, and center Travis Frederick. All of these players will likely find a place in the Hall of Fame and Martin is the only one healthy right now, therefore it should not come as a surprise that he finds himself atop this list.
