The Dallas Cowboys were shockingly surprised to learn that Travis Frederick was calling it quits after seven years with the franchise. Frederick was a mainstay at the center position for the Cowboys, starting in 96 games since 2013.
The Cowboys drafted Frederick in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Wisconsin. Despite being labeled as a day-two pick, Dallas chose to take a chance on the interior offensive lineman.
It’s safe to say that the Cowboys hit the jackpot with Frederick. Over the course of his career, Frederick compiled five Pro Bowl bids and one first-team All-Pro nod.
Now, with Frederick beginning his life after football, Dallas has a glaring hole at the center position. In all likeliness, the Cowboys aren’t going to sign someone in free agency to take Frederick’s place.
If Dallas chooses to sign any position in free agency, it will likely come on the other side of the trenches on the defensive line. With that in mind, here are three offensive linemen the Cowboys could target in the 2020 NFL Draft.
