Protect Wire From Sheetrockers?

Hi guys, good morning.

When wiring up offices for voice/data/video with cat cable,

How do you guys protect your wires that protrude from the Low Voltage boxes getting damaged by the sheetrockers? I loop my wires cleanly and strap them with tie wraps and hope for the best, but I've gotten burnt one too many times and I want to avoid issues before they happen going forward.

Thanks in advance for your help and insight!
