The Dallas Cowboys offensive line is, for the third year in a row, a weak point heading into the NFL season. However, ESPN reported on Aug, 29 that Jerry Jones is pretty happy with the men that he has heading into the season to protect his quarterback.
That offensive line includes rookie Travis Frederick at center, which is what the Dallas Cowboys drafted him to be. Tyrone Smith is entrenched at left tackle, one of the Cowboys’ pieces of the future, and Ronald Leary is pretty set at left guard.
One of the big changes is that Jerry Jones feels that Doug Free is going to remain a fixture at the guard position, starting the season as the right guard. Jeremy Parnell is the man who will complete the line at right tackle for the Cowboys.
Jerry Jones referred to Doug Free as amazing when it comes to how he played at a position he had never play at before. He said that Free playing at that level is what the Dallas Cowboys offense needs from their line this season. He also said that he wants Free and Leary to be his starting guards, which says a lot about his feeling towards Mackenzy Bernadeau.
What makes this Dallas Cowboys offensive line so interesting is that only Tyrone Smith has played at the position he will start the season at in the NFL.
