    That's a good question.

    He was a Center in college. He played RT for most of 2 season with the Vikings. I think they were desperate to replace him as a starter. He lost his starting job to Rookie Phil Loadholt who, from what I can gather, struggled in his Rookie season.

    I guess my answer would be that he could be the 4th OT and possible swing Tackle and backup Center on game day; however,if he had to start at RT, I think the Cowboys would be in big trouble.

    I'm hopeful that they draft an OT, even if it's in the late rounds. There are several mid to late round OTs that Physically look really good.

    No, Tyron Smith was in all options, not just the "limited upside" option.

    The options to start the season were:
    Option 1 - Brandon Moore at OG
    Option 2 - Leary at OG
    Option 3 - Draft Pick at OG

    At age 32, Brandon Moore's upside is limited compared to Leary or a Draft pick.
