Just over two years ago, with little fanfare, came an undrafted free agent from Texas Tech University. Being an undrafted free agent comes with little room for error in order to make the team, especially as an offensive tackle. Typically teams will draft offensive tackles very high in order to protect the most important position on the field, the quarterback. In the Dallas Cowboys case, the 40-million-a-year franchise quarterback, Dak Prescott.
Making the roster as undrafted free agent is very difficult to accomplish, especially with a team that has been known for their riches along the offensive line for the better part of the last decade.
