    There's definitely no question that Smith was a first rounder. He would have gone right after us. Not at all disappointed with the value there. Just would've gone for an immediate starter in Linderbaum

    this report just made me cry....and they are going to put him inside. to replace Williams, who we all complained about because of penalties. This kid had 16 Penalties last year IN COLLEGE...going against inferior competition. how is he going to deal with NFL DTs and LBs who run like TEs and WRs and are same size as he is.....

    I get it. I do. The frustration with this team is well-earned. After decades of futility, they don't deserve a pass. Unlike you, I'm not completely convinced that it was the wrong choice for exactly the first reasons you mentioned. other than, I think he will contribute immediately at guard and potentially at a high level.

    Like I said, I don't hate it. But I absolutely understand why some do.

    Honestly, I don't think Zion was ever in consideration, they also liked Green cause some thought he can also play Tackle in this league.

    i'm guessing top athleticism and flex position ability.
    Every NFL team thinks they can get more out of players per their own coaching staff.
    One team's trash, is another team's treasure.

    For example: Cowboys and Quinn got far more out of Jaylon Kearse than what the Titans did with him.

    Let me see the Cowboys actually pass Zion up, and then i'll believe it.

    They were looking at Tackles, not interior lineman.

    It was also said that Green and Zion had position flex, and Jerry (who continues to leak hints) made mentioned of importance of " flex"
    so who knows if that would ever be a plan too.

    The Cowboys own media guys (dc.com) said the Cowboys were very concerned about Green's knee issue.
    - They don't think the Cowboys would have drafted him in the 1st due to the knee concerns.

    That crew knew 5 picks ahead that Tyler Smith was going to be the pick.

    They wanted to draft a Tackle who can start at Guard and eventually replace Tyron at LT. Some thought Green could play Tackle as well as Guard, but Zion was a pure interior player. Heard he was ranked 16th on their board and higher then both Guards.

    His OL coach was a graduate assistant until he got this job 2 years ago.

    Strange got whipped like a redheaded step-child at the Senior Bowl 1-on-1 drills by Travis Jones.

    I looked like a high school kid trying to block Aaron Donald.

    Supposedly Mel Kiper in his final mock draft, pegged Tyler Smith to the Cowboys in 1st round.

    Yeah, say what you want about these guys, but they do generally know who the Cowboys like and don't like

    That's speculation which will probably be reinforced by Jerry. We'll never know as Jerry in the presser is bound to say they got their man.

    Conner Williams was getting pushed backwards which is why he was holding.

    Yes, Philbin made Steele into a a good player. He was very raw coming out of college.

    FYI, Tyler Smith was my favorite player in this entire draft.

    The others were Zion, Travis Jones and Jameson Williams.

    Penning and Raiman are also incredibly raw. If a team is going to draft a raw OL, then might as well take the highest upside player.

    Physically, Tyler Smith makes Raimann look like a middle school kid.

    who's your source as you dodnt mention this pre-draft.
    I'm sure we'll get the spin from the FO, when has Jerry admitted anything.
    The danger of this Guard call me possible Tackle is that there's a distinct chance of falling between both stools.
