FBF Inbox Answered: Left or Right Tackle?

Rupert Barker via email asks: So when trying to build my mock draft, I noticed that the scouting reports for offensive tackles kept referring to left tackles needing to be athletic and quick footed, while right tackles need to be strong and powerful:eg. The scouting report on Andrus Peat claims he has "the play strength and demeanor of a right tackle, but enough foot quickness...

Despite Pro Bowl status, Dallas offensive line faces tough choice at right tackle

The future of the Cowboys' offensive front looked bright for anyone who tuned in to the tail end of the Pro Bowl on Sunday night. As Matt Ryan drove Team Irvin for the game-winning points in the fourth quarter, he did so behind a Pro Bowl line that featured three Cowboys – Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin. Factor in the blocking prowess of Jason Witten, and the...

Did the NFL screw the Detroit Lions out of a playoff victory against the Cowboys?

The game is over but the controversy has just begun. Two crucial calls went the Dallas Cowboys’ way in their win over the Detroit Lions today. First, the NFL’s officiating crew called a huge pass interference penalty against Dallas only to reverse it without any explanation. Then they missed an obvious hold on Tyron Smith, as you can see here: @MikePereira Obvious hold by LT...

Do the Dallas Cowboys have the best offensive line in the NFL?

It seems like yesterday that the weakest part of the Cowboys team was their offensive line. Since 2011, Dallas has drafted three offensive linemen in the first round. Tyron Smith out of USC, Travis Frederick out of Wisconsin, and most recently Zack Martin out of Notre Dame.
