For the first time since 2007, when Flozell Adams and Leonard Davis earned the honor, the Dallas Cowboys have an All-Pro offensive lineman on their roster.

Left tackle Tyron Smith was named a second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press on Friday, less than a week after the 23-year-old learned that he’d earned his first career Pro Bowl nod, some nice icing on the cake that was Smith’s third season in the NFL.

In 2013, Smith allowed just one sack and was called for just one hold while protecting Tony Romo’s blind side and helping lead the way for DeMarco Murray, the NFL’s 10th most productive runner.

Smith was the ninth overall pick out of USC back in 2011. He played right tackle in his rookie season before being moved to the left side--which was the plan all along--before the 2012 campaign.
