Dallas Cowboys Select Tyron Smith With Ninth Overall Pick

With the ninth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith.

Last year, the Dallas Cowboy offensive line showed that it was old, falling apart, and not that talented. I mean, the age just hit that line. Smith makes sense because the Cowboys have the skill players, but need to keep Tony Romo upright if they want to win. Smith is athletic, big, and fits what Jerry Jones wants in an offensive lineman.

This is a pick that is not a surprise as Smith to Dallas has picked up steam over the past four weeks. It's not a flashy Jerry pick, but this tells you he wants to win and is listening to head coach Jason Garrett. I expect Dallas to pour in picks to their offensive and defensive lines. If they do, I expect Dallas to bounce back after a disappointing season last year.
