Offensive Line (9):

Tyron Smith
Tyler Smith
Tyler Biadasz
Zack Martin
Terence Steele
Connor McGovern
Josh Ball
Matt Farinok
Matt Waletzko

The five starters are set for Dallas with Tyron Smith and Terence Steele at the tackle positions, Tyler Smith and Zack Martin at guard, and Tyler Biadasz in the middle.

The younger Smith, Tyler, had an up and down debut on Saturday night but he showed what the front office sees in him. He had no problem bullying his opponent but needs to work on his hand placement because he was flagged more than once.

Martin didn’t play, and in his absence, McGovern was only okay. There was an outside chance he could win the left guard spot which would move Smith to right tackle over Steele but that won’t happen any time soon.

Biadasz is also a player of concern but there really are no better options. Matt Farinok is the backup at center, but he’s not going to be better at this point.

As for their reserve tackles, Josh Ball was a problem in Week 1. He missed his rookie season so he will need time but he was beaten on multiple occasions and also drew some laundry. Matt Waletzko is further behind him but either way, an injury to Steele or Tyron Smith could be devastating.

With all that being said, keep an eye on Isaac Alarcón. He’s listed as a guard but played tackle against the Broncos and might have been their best on the night. If he keeps it up, he might force his way onto the roster.
