The Dallas Cowboys offensive line depth was tested during the 2020 season. With the Tyron Smith, Zack Martin and La’el Collins all dealing with injuries, can the core of the offensive line get healthy and what kind of progress did the young players make while filling in? Was there enough progress to prevent Dallas from drafting an offensive lineman in the first round of the 2021 draft?
