I don't disagree with Martin making the list despite only 3 years, he is still a 2x 1st team all pro.

I do disagree with him being above Tyron. Tyron has shown to be just as dominant at a more premier position. While he wasn't an instant elite as a rookie like Martin he is the same age as Martin.

Meaning by the time Tyron was 23(like Martin was during his rookie year) he was an elite NFL player too. He was perfoming admirably at RT his rookie year when he was months removed from being a teenager. Plus his family drama, his maturity, he has been rock solid like he has been on the field.

Definitely understand where you're coming from. To be honest, Tyron has been just as dominant, but he's not always as consistent as Martin. Both guys do things that are incredible, and I see the point for Tyron being higher for sure.

#41 - Dez Bryant, WR



Notable Stats: 97 Games Played | 462 Receptions | 6,621 Yards | 67 Touchdowns | 3X Pro Bowl | 1X 1st Team All Pro

Another current player who should rise up this list by the time he hangs up his cleats, Dez Bryant is already one of the most accomplished receivers in Dallas history. After slipping in the draft due to "character concerns", the Cowboys traded up from 27 to 24 to ensure that another Randy Moss situation would not occur. The trade was worthwhile. Though not the most consistent receiver, there are games where Dez looks like the most dominant player in the NFL. On slant routes or jump balls in the end zone, there aren't many players I would rather have attacking the ball than Dez. He is currently 2nd all time in receiving touchdowns, just four behind Bob Hayes. By midway through this season, he should be the Cowboys' all-time receiving touchdown leader.

#40 - Bill Bates, DB



Notable Stats: 217 Games Played | 676 Tackles | 18.0 Sacks | 14 Interceptions | 1X Pro Bowl | 1X All Pro | 1X NFC Special Teams POY | 3X Super Bowl Champion

There aren't many Cowboys more beloved than Bates. Bill Bates redefined what it meant to be a Special Teams player - the NFL created a spot on the Pro Bowl roster for him. Bates was known for his hustle, effort, and huge hits as a special teamer. Bates is tied with Mark Tuinei and Ed "Too Tall" Jones for the most seasons wearing the Star - 15 seasons. He is also third all time in Dallas history with 217 games played. Though never the biggest, fastest, or strongest guy on the field, Bates was a very valuable player, and is arguably the best special teams player in the history of the NFL.

Agree with the others who said at this point Tyron should be ahead of Martin.

Also think if Bailey made it at 50, than Mat McBriar should've made it somewhere. He was one of the best in the NFL in his 8 seasons here.

#39 - Billy Joe Dupree, TE



Notable Stats: 159 Games Played | 267 Receptions | 3,565 Receiving Yards | 41 Touchdowns | 4X Pro Bowl | 1X Super Bowl Champion

Part of a long line of successful tight ends, Dupree was among the best of the bunch. Dupree had big shoes to fill, as the Cowboys drafted him as Mike Ditka's replacement. It didn't take long for him to make an impact, as he led the team in receiving and was second in touchdowns as a rookie. In a time when tight ends were supposed to block and not do much else, Dupree put together a franchise record for Cowboys' tight ends - 41 touchdowns - a record that stood until future Hall of Famer Jason Witten came around. Dupree was an iron man, never missing a game in his 11 seasons in the NFL.

#38 - Pat Donovan, OT



Notable Stats: 129 Games Played | 4X Pro Bowl | 1X All Pro | 1X Super Bowl Champion

Yet another former defensive lineman who converted to offensive tackle, Donovan shined after taking over for Ralph Neely at left tackle in the 1970's and early 80's. Donovan is one of five offensive tackles in Cowboys history to be selected to at least four Pro Bowls, and he did that in consecutive seasons from 1979-1982. Although he never missed a game, his body broke down rapidly, and a pair of shoulder surgeries ended his playing career in 1983. Some of his highlights include opening lanes for Tony Dorsett, including his famous 99 yard touchdown run. He may have only won one Super Bowl, but he played in three Super Bowls and six NFC Championship games. If you haven't picked up on the theme yet, Dallas has had some excellent offensive linemen, and Donovan is among the best.
