The Cowboys offensive line may be strong heading into 2021.
It has been a very long time since we saw Tyron Smith and La’el Collins both start at tackle for the Dallas Cowboys. In fact, current head coach Mike McCarthy has never gotten to make the ceremonial run out of the AT&T Stadium tunnel with the pair the way that Jason Garrett did for so long. This is the case because La’el Collins missed all of last season and Tyron Smith missed a majority of it. 2020 was a disaster as far as tackles went for the Cowboys.
While we are still not even in March there is a sense of unease surrounding both players this offseason. Smith has battled injuries for a long time and some rumors apparently popped up about Collins retiring (they were debunked by his agent).
Tackle is a position of need for the Cowboys and could be where they choose to spend the 10th overall pick. But, it seems that things are progressing in the right direction with their current starters, and that is very good to see.
