Could the Dallas Cowboys offensive line be a silent killer?

With many heavy-hitting names on offense, one needs to keep in mind of all positions on the depth chart.


The Dallas Cowboys have high hopes on the offensive with names like Zeke, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb, and Dak Prescott. The options seem limitless and the team could threaten the all-time record of 483 points in a season, which was set in 1983.


That would mean the Cowboys would have to score 30+ points per game.


While all the weapons are great, the offensive line could be a silent killer. The majority of the 2020 offensive line has been in the dark. Tackles La’el Collins and Tyon Smith have missed the entire training camp due to various injuries.


Second-year tackle Mitch Hyatt left practice, while Cameron Erving has missed time as well. Throw in the fact that former Pro Bowler Travis Frederick retired, this Cowboys line is not the star-studded group it used to be.


Veteran Joe Looney is expected to take over, but there are question marks there. There are also questions surrounding guard Connor Wiliams, who is back after an ACL tear last year.


When the line is on point, it could be the best line in the entire league. However, the team is going to be relying on new names, such as backup Brandon Knight. That also includes sophomore Conner McGovern, who missed all of 2019, and rookie center Tyler Biadasz.


Nobody wants to call the offensive line a “silent killer” just yet, but we appear to be showing symptoms.
