The Dallas Cowboys Select Jaylon Smith at #34

    The grabbed Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick last night, and tonight entered day 2 of the with needs across the .

    Appetizing names such as Noah Spence, Jonathan Bullard, , A'Shawn Robinson, and a host of other talented defensive linemen fell through the and were all potential targets for Dallas at #34.

    There was also a lot of speculation that the Cowboys would up or down from this pick.

    Instead, they stayed put, and added a talented out of Notre Dame that will not see the field in 2016. The unfortunately injured  became the 34th overall selection of the Dallas Cowboys.

    The Cowboys are pretty well set at linebacker for 2016 as long as and stay on the field together. Those two made for a dynamic pair in 2015, with McClain returning on a one year deal for this season.

    Then, in 2017, the expectation will be that Jaylon Smith – a high first round talent before his (suffered during his final collegiate game) – can step into a starting role. Jaylon recorded over 100 tackles in each of his past two years with the Fighting Irish.

    So, let's wish Jaylon Smith the best of luck in his recovery process, and welcome him to what's ahead in Cowboys Nation!
