Zack Martin debuted at right guard Friday during the Cowboys’ rookie mini-camp. The first-round pick, who started 52 games at tackle during his Notre Dame days, is adjusting to a new position at the same time he’s trying to master the team’s comprehensive playbook. “It’s been great,” Martin said. “Just getting out there on the field was fun. There is a lot that comes at you.” Martin is being fed new material each day and estimates he devotes an extra hour of study time at night to make sure he knows his assignments by the time he arrives for work the next morning. But head coach Jason Garrett says Martin appears to have what it takes to succeed at guard. “It seems like it’s a pretty natural fit for him,” Garrett said. “He typically played on the left hand side, played left tackle, but his position flex is something we thought was a real asset. He’s a smart football player.” Offensive line coach Bill Callahan said it has been a pleasure tutoring Martin in the short period they’ve been together.
