Throughout his career in the NFL, Matt Lehr played in many positions along the offensive line after allowing just half a sack in his senior season.

The Cowboys drafted Lehr 137th overall in the 2001 NFL Draft and the beginning of his professional career struggled as he tried to find his footing in Dallas.

However, over eight seasons in the league, Lehr repeatedly earned a starting job on teams' offensive lines and appeared in 98 total games throughout his career.

After playing for the Cowboys, St. Louis Rams, Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, and Tennessee Titans throughout his career, Lehr earned 51 starts.
