    Offensive linemen

    BEST

    Rayfield Wright, Fort Valley State
    1967, seventh round (No. 182 overall)
    Wright's career as an offensive lineman landed him in the Hall of Fame. It's an honor that would have been impossible to predict from his start.
    The Cowboys bounced Wright between tight end, tackle and defensive end during his first three years in the league before establishing him at right tackle. Once there he became a fixture with six consecutive Pro Bowl selections. Wright was named All-Pro four times and earned a spot on the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 1970s.

    Larry Allen, Sonoma State
    1994, second round (No. 46 overall)
    He is the second Cowboys offensive lineman to earn a bust in Canton and will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this year.
    Allen is arguably the most dominant lineman of his era. His 10 Pro Bowl appearances with the Cowboys is the most of any offensive player in club history. Allen was named to the Pro Bowl as a right guard, a left tackle and a left guard, something no one else has done.

    Honorable mention: Herb Scott (13th round, 1975), Mark Stepnoski (third round, 1989), Erick Williams (third round, 1991), Flozell Adams (second round, 1998).

    WORST

    Howard Richards, Missouri
    1981, first round (No. 26 overall)
    Until Tyron Smith with the ninth overall pick was selected in 2011, this was the last time the Cowboys have used a first-round pick on an offensive lineman. Richards was primarily a backup for five of his six seasons with the Cowboys. He started 16 games during a disappointing, injury-prone career

    Robert Shaw, Tennessee
    1979, first round (No. 27 overall)
    This is the first time the Cowboys used a first round pick on an offensive lineman. Shaw began his career backing up John Fitzgerald at center and showed promise. But two months deep into his third season, a season that saw the only three starts of his career, Shaw blew out his right knee in a loss to San Francisco. He tried to come back for 20 months but was never able to pass his physical and retired.

    There's a point in here somewhere. I'm trying to determine what it is.
