    What's all this talk about right tackle, future left tackle? Blah, blah, blah. Just leave the kid in Larry Allen's old position and let him maul. Bulk this kid up to where he can bench press 700 lbs.

    I think his best spot might be RG....I'd move Martin to LG....

    I think he's more suited inside so I'm not too worried about it.

    Eric Williams is this kid's model and not Larry Allen.
    Like both players btw....

    I will say this- over the past 17 hours I have gone from hating the pick, to accepting it, to liking it, and now I am actually a bit excited for Smith's future.

    I had no idea he was that athletic for his size. The technique issues can be fixed and I love the fact he's nasty and punishing. The Cowboys need attitude.

    Well, I just read they're giving him L. Allen's old #73. So, there's that. :p

    Yes, put him at left guard and leave him there. Position flex is for backups. And why all of a sudden would they start moving OL around? When we wanted Collins at LG and C.Williams at RT they didn't do it. So don't start now.

    Tyler just recently said on 105.3 interview that Larry Allen was his ideal model of all time. ..Tyron Smith as of right now.

    And just imagine if this kid had stayed another year in school. We're getting him a year early and the opportunity to mold him. What's not to like?

    Nah. Let him get comfortable in the league at the easier spot to play but if he can be your next LT (and he has all the traits and athleticism) you'd be wasting him at LG once Tyron breaks down for good.

    Lol what? Jesus. This is a worse take than Kellen Moore taking the starting spot from Romo

    Eric Williams like to finish but so did LA. What set EWill apart was how he'd turn his punches into head slaps and throat punches. He had no issues sweeping the leg. I don't see Smith being like that. He likes picking people up, and slam/flopping on them. T

    Buzz-kill post right? That's a lot of penalties against Tulsa competition too. I am hopeful but why replace Connor Williams with another Connor Williams type player, at least where he was...LOL

    He’s already really strong but I doubt Tulsa has an elite weight program and he’s 21 so he should get stronger for sure. He could be a really good guard
    I don’t know about tackle but if he can be a good guard then it’s a good pick
