The Cowboys took offensive lineman Zack Martin in the first round of the 2014 draft.

The Cowboys took offensive lineman Zack Martin in the first round of the 2014 draft.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Dallas Cowboys’ 16th overall pick in the 2014 Draft focused almost entirely on quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Online sources said that the Cowboys would do it if Manziel were still there.

It did not happen.

However, the Cowboys also did not focus on defense with the pick, either. With defensive tackle Aaron Donald off the board (going to St. Louis at #13), the Cowboys took offensive tackle Zack Martin.

This was Mel Kiper’s guess in his mock draft posted on April 22. Martin began the off-season as someone who could fall to the late part of the first round. However, his stock rose, and some saw him as a top 10 pick.

Now he is a Cowboy. Whether he plays tackle or guard is something that needs to play out over the next few months.
