We all know who the #1 player is. You can stop after Emmit at 3 and Staubach at 2.

Wtf get T.O. out of here. Teague and Emmitt would be rolling in their graves if they could see this.

and they were actually deceased.

and both opted to be buried instead of cremation or something uncommon like a viking funeral.

#47 - Tyron Smith, OT



Notable Stats: 92 Games Started | 4X Pro Bowl | 2X First Team All Pro | 2X Second Team All Pro

In six seasons, Tyron Smith has already been to four Pro Bowls and been selected to four All Pro teams. And he's only 26 years old. Tyron broke a long standing streak of no offensive linemen in the first round for Jerry Jones, and it forced old Jerruh to see the light, as the Cowboys would solidify their offensive line with two more first round selections. Tyron Smith has been one of the best offensive tackles since he came into the league - he does things that men his size shouldn't be able to do. When he is really on his game, there isn't much pass rushers can do against him. As we hear every year in training camp, young rushers learn that if Tyron gets his hands on you, it's over. I expect Tyron to move up this list as his career continues to progress.

Dude's a damn good player. Honestly can't complain that we took him over Watt.

#46 - Calvin Hill, RB



Notable Stats: 6 Seasons | 1,166 Carries | 5,009 Rushing Yards | 1,359 Receiving Yards | 45 Touchdowns | 4X Pro Bowl | 2X All Pro

Calvin Hill was one of Dallas' first elite running backs, as the Cowboys were able to seamlessly shift from Don Perkins and Dan Reeves to Hill. Unfortunately, he was hampered by knee and back injuries, notably tearing his ACL in 1971. That didn't seem to bother him too much, because in 1972, Hill became the first Cowboy running back to eclipse the 1,000 yard mark. At 6'4, 230 pounds, Hill was a massive running back for his time (and today as well), which helped him to 4 Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl victory in his short six year stint in Dallas. After leaving Dallas, he played one season in the World Football League, where he tore his MCL and was never the same upon his return to the NFL. Which is good, because he signed with the Redskins. Hill is one of the best backs to ever suit up for a franchise that has a storied history when it comes to running backs.

FM30, you really need to fight the recency bias on Tony Romo. Romo is NOT top 5 and he's probably not top 10. Written top 10? Sure. Romo is in that next tier.

Without giving away too much, I think you'll be happy about his placement

#45 - Mark Stepnoski, OC



Notable Stats: 9 Seasons | 133 Games Played | 3X Pro Bowl | 2X All Pro | 2X Super Bowl Champion | 1990's All Decade 2nd Team

Despite being undersized at 6'2, 265 pounds, Stepnoski was the leader of one of the most dominant offensive lines in NFL history. Stepnoski was able to take advantage of his size and athleticism by utilizing natural leverage against bigger opponents. Stepnoski played a crucial role in keeping Troy Aikman upright and opening running lanes for the NFL's all-time leading rusher. He may not have looked like a traditional center of the 1990's (especially standing next to Nate Newton and Larry Allen), but he had an incredibly successful career.

#44 - Mark Tuinei, OT



Notable Stats: 15 Seasons | 195 Games Played | 2X Pro Bowl | 3X Super Bowl Champion | Polynesian Hall of Fame Member

After going undrafted in 1983, Mark Tuinei would never be overlooked again. Signed as a defensive lineman, he was eventually converted to offensive tackle, and the move paid dividends almost immediately. Despite dealing with injuries, he played 195 games, the most by an offensive player in Cowboys' history. Known as one of the toughest players to ever don the star, Tuinei helped keep Troy Aikman on his feet as his blindside protector. He may have been an even better run blocker, paving the way for Emmitt Smith until he was let go in 1998. Tuinei tragically passed away in 1999, just a year later.

Always thought Stepnoski was underrated during his career.

#43 - Ralph Neely, OT



Notable Stats: 172 Games Played | 2X Pro Bowl | 4X All Pro | 2X Super Bowl Champion | 1960's All Decade Team

Neely was a stalwart on the Dallas offensive line from the day he joined the NFL. After some confusion as to which team own Neely's rights, the Cowboys eventually acquired to future star tackle for several draft picks. Teaming up with Rayfield Wright, Neely was one half of a dominant tackle tandem that made the Cowboys so tough to stop offensively. One of the elite tackles in the 1960's, Neely utilized his athleticism and size to give defenders fits. After winning Super Bowl XII, Neely rode off into the sunset, retiring as one of the best linemen in franchise history.

#42 - Zack Martin, OG



Notable Stats: 48 Games Played | 3X Pro Bowl | 2X 1st Team All Pro | 1X 2nd Team All Pro | Preventing Manziel To Dallas

Already? Yes, Zack Martin in just three seasons has, in my opinion, established himself as one of the greatest Cowboys of all time. He was a Pro Bowler in each of his first three seasons, the first guard to ever accomplish that feat. Since he stepped onto the field, Martin has been dominant, and arguably the best guard in all of football. The Cowboys had a good offensive line with Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick, but it went to another level once Martin was added into the fold. Martin combines flawless technique with incredible athleticism and a mean streak that would make Erik Williams proud. By the end of his career, Martin will be mentioned among Larry Allen, Rayfield Wright, and the aforementioned Williams as the best linemen in Dallas history.
