No. 2: Zack Martin 

An argument can be made that Martin deserves the number one spot on this list, and I wouldn’t argue against it.

Since joining the league as a first round pick in 2014, all he’s done is become the best interior offensive lineman in the NFL. Some think he might be the best offensive lineman at any position.

Martin has been selected to the All-Pro 1st team every season. He has started every game in his career and is a rock in the middle of the Dallas Cowboys offensive line. At age 27, there is still a ton left in the tank for Martin. Canton, Ohio should be calling his name 15 years from now.

As it stands, he’ll likely sign a contract in the next year that makes him that highest paid offensive lineman in the National Football League.
