Originally from Forth Worth, TX, Smith was a redshirt sophomore for the Golden Hurricane in 2021. He started at left tackle, a position that could soon be open in Dallas as Tyron Smith's health and performance are in decline.
My guess is that Tyler Smith will compete for the LG spot from the jump. With maybe an idea that he can bump out to tackle in the future if need be.
The back half of the first is basically a jumble of guys with 2nd round grades, and the Cowboys combo of grade + need won out.

Tyler Smith is one of the biggest boom or bust prospects this year
Had a 3rd grade on him
