Zack Martin Is Going to Dallas
Notre Dame played Arizona State at AT & T Stadium in their Shamrock Series last October. It was their annual home away from home game. Little did Zack Martin know that it would become a permanent home for him. On Thursday, Martin was selected by the Dallas Cowboys.
Martin was the only former Irish player taken in the first round. Many thought that Louis Nix and Stephon Tuitt would also go on the first night. But Nix and Tuitt along with other Irish players such as Troy Niklas, TJ Jones, Tommy Rees, George Atkinson, Bennett Jackson all still await to see where, when, and if they are selected for their NFL futures.
It will be an exciting weekend for these former Irish players.
