No. 1 Notre Dame football first-round draft pick of the last 25 years: Zack Martin
2014 NFL Draft: Round 1, Pick 16
Dallas Cowboys, 2014–present
Going from protecting Tony Romo to Dak Prescott, but no matter who has been under center, Zack Martin has been one of the primary reasons why the Dallas Cowboys. With a Pro Bowl and All-Pro nomination every season since being drafted besides the 2020 season — one which was derailed by a calf strain injury — Martin has been consistently among the offensive linemen in the sport.
Martin has nearly as many Pro Bowl appearances as he has holding penalties, showing a surreal level of discipline throughout nearly a decade in pro football playing for one of the most renowned franchises in NFL history.
Representing Notre Dame football with pride, Martin has been the golden child of the golden helmet guild over the past 25 years.
