Mark Stepnoski 53
Mark Stepnoski was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 1989 NFL Draft. The Cowboys switched him to center, although he had never played that position. During his rookie year he was tutored by Tom Rafferty, who was playing his last season in the NFL. He became a starter for the last four games of the season. Stepnoski used his athletic ability, leverage and balance to outmaneuver bigger defensive players and become one of the league's best centers of his era.
By the end of the 1991 season he was selected to the first of five straight Pro Bowls. From 1992 to 1994, together with Erik Williams, Mark Tuinei, Nate Newton and Kevin Gogan, he was part of some of the best offensive lines to play in the NFL helping pave the way for Emmitt Smith to become the NFL's all-time leading rusher.
