Tyron Smith

Tyron Smith
NFL Draft Scouting Report

Offensive Tackle

USC


College Position: Offensive Tackle
School: USC
Grade: Junior
Height: 6-6
Weight: 285
Birthdate: 12-12-1990
Draft Projection: Mid First
Overall Rank: 18
NFL Draft Position (Rank): Offensive Tackle (4)

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Dallas Cowboys in the 1st round with the #9 pick.
Jerry Jones selects his first Round One offensive lineman of his career in Smith, who played right tackle for the Trojans but projects to the left side at the next level. Long armed and very athletic, he could be the best tackle in this draft when it's all said and done. Still raw technique-wise, Smith showed the ability to dominate in the Pac-10 and could have time to learn behind veteran Doug Free if the Cowboys so choose. The Cowboys tried hard to trade this selection, so some will be led to wonder how much they really wanted to select Smith or if they just settled on him.

  • Displays a nice burst off the ball
