    I don't know who he is or how old he is but if that guy bulks up he is a future first rounder.

    Extremely impressive.

    Tyron Smith. He's a Junior, 6'5" and supposedly bulked up to 280. I know they wanted him to get bigger but he hasn't been able to maintain it. Back-up left tackle as a freshman and he has started at right tackle since the beginning of last year.

    If the Cowboys are going to start getting away from big, mauler-type linemen and go with more athletic guys like Doug Free, he would be in that mold.

    He jumps off the screen. Looks like he has a high motor too.

    Long arms as well and absolutely great feet.

    He needs to get up about 30 more LbS though.

    I gotta bump my thread. I really should be a NFL scout. It's getting ridiculous.

    He cannot make it in the NFL at 280. He is supposedly only 20 so maybe he can put on some weight, but you have to wonder since it s come out recently that they try to put weight on him but he burns it off.

    Bottom line is that if he cannot get to near 300, he will not be able to play Tackle in the pros; the strongest DEs will basically be able to toss him aside. That is one reason you need to be up to at least 300, and I am not sure that there are any good starting tackles under 310.

    I think he's gonna go to a zone block team, unrealistic to expect him to get much higher than 300, and even that is a bit light.

    So you gained 20 lbs. whoopie. Or did you not catch the part where he has had trouble keeping weight on?

    I'm not going to waive my pom poms for us to get this guy but his footwork for a Tackle is magical.


    It wouldn't surprise me if he shows up in Indy weighing close to 300.

    He could loan up to help his draft stock, but he's naturally not that weight. He's young though, I certainly wouldn't mind him as a RT or even depth LT, but as it stands, he's gonna have some trouble with bull rushers.

    Only tackle that's worth a 1st IMO besides maybe Sherrod.

    he could EASILY bulk up. I went from 160 pounds in the 10th grade to around 215 in the 12th, and thats with no personal trainer, and the best stuff, which this kid will have. He should have no problem bulking up.

    Most people feel so, but I don't. He doesn't have the athleticism of a 1st round tackle IMO. But I'm definitely in the minority with that opinion.

    I haven't seen a lot of Tyron Smith, but his athleticism and feet just jump out at you. I consider him to be a legit blue chip prospect. He'll need a few years on the bench, but it will be well worth it.

    See I was actually surprised with his athletic ability and once he gets his hands on you he basically does the sled drill.

    He's my kind of offensive tackle and a guy I wouldnt want to play against for 4 quarters.

    Tyron Smith reminds me of the guy out of USC who came out last year and was projected to go in the first, but fell to the Saints at the end of the 2nd. I think his name is Charles Brown? He was about the same weight as Smith
