Cowboys signed first-round pick Zack Martin to a four-year contract.
Martin lined up as Dallas' first-team right guard during OTAs, and also saw some reps as a backup center in an effort to improve his versatility. Martin played tackle at Notre Dame, and could now conceivably play any spot on the line. His rookie-year position will be right guard. Martin has drawn comparisons to Andy Levitre as a plug-and-play prospect who should start for a long time. Jun 16 - 2:00 PM

Cowboys first-round OG Zack Martin has taken snaps at center in OTAs.

Travis Frederick is locked in as the Cowboys' starting center, while Mackenzy Bernadeau is the backup. Martin is simply being groomed as an emergency option. Martin is expected to man right guard as a rookie.

No. 16 overall pick Zack Martin is expected to start at right guard as a rookie.

Mackenzy Bernadeau becomes a versatile bench piece. It leaves the Cowboys with a starting unit of LT Tyron Smith, LG Ronald Leary, C Travis Frederick, RG Martin and RT Doug Free. This is going to be one of the strongest offensive lines in the entire league.

Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed the Rams tried trading back into the first round for G/T Zack Martin, who went to the Cowboys at No. 16 overall.

The Rams were talking with the Ravens, who held the 17th overall pick. "It would have been pricey but worth it," said Fisher. St. Louis is dead set on shoring up its offensive line. They have zero depth up front and could still stand to upgrade at center and right tackle. The Rams hold the Nos. 44 and 75 picks on Friday.

Cowboys selected Notre Dame G/T Zack Martin with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Jerry Jones passes on Johnny Manziel and help for his beleaguered defense, instead adding a versatile piece to an already solid O-Line. Martin (6-foot-4 1/8, 308) made a school-record 52 starts for the Irish, two at right tackle and the rest on the blind side. He was the only lineman capable of blocking Aaron Donald at January's Senior Bowl. Martin is a short-armed (32 7/8") prospect best suited to the right side or guard, but offers plus movement skills (28-inch vertical, 8-foot-10 broad jump) and is technically sound, bending naturally at the knees. Even with a forthcoming position switch, he's as pro-ready as college linemen get.

A source tells the Miami Herald the Dolphins are targeting Notre Dame G/T Zack Martin in trade-up scenarios.

Per the Herald's Armando Salguero, "sources around the NFL are saying, insisting actually," that rookie GM Dennis Hickey wants to move out of the No. 19 overall spot. If the Fins find a trade-up partner, they're expected to target Martin. They could also trade down. More recently, Miami has been linked to Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier. They're known to be high on Tennessee OT Ja'Wuan James.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports the Giants are "extremely high" on Notre Dame G/T Zack Martin.

The same can not be said for North Carolina TE Eric Ebron. Beat writer Jordan Raanan pegs Martin as the most likely pick for the Giants if they stay at No. 12 overall. The team reportedly prefers Martin over Michigan OT Taylor Lewan, who some call the best tackle in this year's class. Martin can play every position on the line save center and would likely play right tackle or guard in New York.

NFL draft insider Tony Pauline reports the Dolphins "do not expect" Notre Dame G/T Zack Martin to last until the No. 19 overall pick.

A pro-ready guard or tackle, Martin's sweet spot appears to be selections Nos. 12-18, where the Giants, Rams, Steelers, Cowboys, Ravens, and Jets could all use offensive line talent injections. Should Martin go before No. 19, Pauline suggests the Dolphins could try to trade down and target Nevada OL Joel Bitonio later on. Miami has glaring needs at both right guard and right tackle.
Apr 25 - 1:10 PM

The Miami Herald reports Notre Dame G/T Zack Martin could be an option for the Dolphins at No. 19.

NFL Network draft guru/NBC Notre Dame football announcer Mike Mayock thinks Martin can play "all five (line) positions in the NFL." The Herald's Barry Jackson believes the Dolphins would be looking at Martin as a right tackle, and look to pair him with a free-agent left tackle. Martin — who stands in at 6-foot-4, 308 pounds with 32 7/8-inch arms — is projected as a guard more often than tackle, but Mayock rates him as the draft's No. 4 tackle.
