The Dallas Cowboys have seen different players at different positions step up in big moments so far this season. From Cooper Rush to Donovan Wilson to Noah Brown, the roster has had players emerge in different games.
As a result, Dallas sits with a 3-1 record heading into week five. The matchup against the Los Angeles Rams looks like a winnable game, as well. That would put the Cowboys at 4-1 heading into an NFC East showdown versus the Philadelphia Eagles in week six.
Mike McCarthy and the coaching staff is getting the most out the roster through four games. One player, in particular, that has really elevated their game is offensive tackle Terrence Steele.
Steele considered among NFL’s best
In fact, Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle Terence Steele is seeing some praise sent his way after four games. He is playing very well for the Cowboys as a run blocker and has made real strides as a pass protector.
Pro Football Focus has taken notice of Steele’s play in 2022. PFF considers Steele to be one of the better right tackles in the league. That is evidence of how much the Texas Tech product has developed.
At this point in the season, it should no longer be surprising that Terence Steele is capable of a solid outing,” PFF analyst Marcus Mosher wrote. “He’s been the Cowboys’ most consistent offensive lineman (even over Zack Martin) this season.”
“After four games, you can make a strong case that Steele is one of the NFL’s best right tackles,” Mosher continued. “And that is certainly impressive, considering how much he struggled during the 2020 and 2021 seasons.”
There was valid concern when the Cowboys opted roll with rookie Tyler Smith at left tackle and former UDFA Terence Steele at right tackle to begin the season. However, both have stepped up tremendously and are playing key roles in the Cowboys’ current win-streak.
Terence Steele has faced his fair share of criticism during his young career in the NFL. He is proving his skeptics wrong and providing the Cowboys with a reliable player at an important position.
