Zack Martin is entering his first season with the Dallas Cowboys. He has been lining up with the first-team offense early on in 2014 training camp and is the odds-on favorite to start at right guard. He was considered one of the most talented offensive linemen in the 2014 NFL draft.

Early Years & College

Martin was born in Indianapolis, Ind., on Nov. 20, 1990. He attended Bishop Chatard High where he was named first-team All-State as a junior and senior, when he was credited with 114 pancake blocks. After graduating, Martin went to Notre Dame where he took over as the starting left tackle in 2010. From 2010-14, Martin made a school-record 52 starts for the Irish and was named Most Valuable Player of the 2013 New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys selected Martin in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft (16th overall). Martin has been opening quite a few eyes early in Cowboys training camp, especially after beating veteran Henry Melton on his first 1-on-1 pass-rush drill. Martin is currently listed No. 1 on the depth chart at right guard. On a side note, one that may follow Martin for the rest of his career, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently admitted that he had considered drafting Johnny Manziel instead of Martin.
