The Dallas Cowboys’ decision to select tackle Tyron Smith in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft is starting to look pretty, pretty, pretty good.
Arguably, Smith has been the best lineman on the Cowboys’ roster in each of his first three seasons. He played right tackle in his first season before moving to the much talked-about--thanks Sandra Bullock--blind side at left tackle in his sophomore year in the league.
Here in 2013, his second year at left tackle, Smith has impressed just about everyone, including his head coach, Jason Garrett. Garrett believes Smith is playing like a Pro Bowler.
“He’s getting better in all phases,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “He has all the traits you want in a left tackle. But really what distinguishes him is his toughness. ... There’s a physical presence about him and just kind of how he plays, how he finishes is really good for our team, not only for him but the rest of the offensive line.”
